Involvement is one key to success at Elon College. An
active academic life supplemented by a diet containing
extra-curricular activities helps make a well-rounded student.
And that’s what a liberal arts education is all about.
The Student Union Board (SUB) and the Student
Government Association (SGA) lead the way in providing
student activities. SUB is always looking for participants, and
if you’re interested in concerts, dances and movies, Jerry
Hooker is the man to see.
Various media are integral parts of campus life. They
include the Pendulum, Elon’s weekly newspaper; Colonnades,
the literary magazine; and Phi Psi Cli, the yearbook. Anyone
interested in writing, photography, cartooning or layout
should drop by the Pendulum ofHce at 205 Long Student
For the musically gifted, Elon offers a concert and
marching band, an orchestra, and the Emanons jazz band.
The Liberal Arts Forum provides lectures and a yearly
symposium. Last year’s forum film festival was well-
Other campus organizations include the Black Cultural
Society, the Daytrippers for commuter students, the Public
Interest Research Group (PIRG) which researches consumer

What’s going on
One of Elon’s continuing problems has been that of
communications. Students constantly complain of not being
informed about campus events and fjolicy changes.
Despite the presence of a student weekly newspaper, a
radio station, bullentin boards, mail boxes and a weekly
newsletter, some people say they are still unable to find out
what’s going on.
The Pendulum, student newspaper, and WSOE, student
radio station, are operated by volunteers interested in keeping
us all in the know.
WSOE is also soliciting the aid of interested students. The
station is providing Elon College with good music,
community and educational programming.
The ’‘Communicator,” weekly newsletter prepared in the
Public Information Office, is also another outlet for news of
Communication is a two-way process. Students shouldn’t
sit and wait for news to drop on their heads. Reading the
newspaper, listening to the radio station, checking mailboxes,
looking at bulletin hoards; and picking up a newsletter are
ways to keep every student, faculty and staff member
informed. Those who still don’t know what’s going on must
not want to know.
