add teller
Jennifer Hudson
The Pendulum
NCNB's Elon College branch
is expecting a teller machine to be
installed by mid-to-late November.
The new machine will be a
drive-up Automatic Teller Machine
(ATM) unit. It will be located on
the side of the building where the
drive-through window is located. A
canopy will cover the unit.
The teller machine will be a
handy asset to the community and
the students from Elon.
Currently, there are no teller
machines within walking distance
of the campus. The nearest
machine is located near the Holly
Hill Mall.
This dilemma has additionally
been an inconvenience for those
students without a car or a ride,
leaving them stranded without
money on the weekends.

Palmer's message: live from the inside out

On Tuesday. Parker J. P^er
challenged students and faculty at
Elon's fourth annual convocauon
to relate their own expenences to
writer, teacl^r and
activist delivered an address
entiUed. "Living
Out- Education,
“wChang.,-unto oaks.
Palmer urged the audience lo
"live from the inside out." "Most
of us are educated in a way where
the world is at arms length,"
Palmer said. Instead of entirely
using the world outside one’s self
to tell what truth is. Palmer said
one should consult their inner self
and enter into a dialogue with the
world so that discovering truth
becomes a two-way conversation.
Palmer reminded the crowd of
Rosa Parks, a black woman, who
made a decision to live from the
inside out and sat in the front (of
the white section) of a bus in
Montgomery, Alabama.
"One of the greatest problems
we must overcome is our deep and
common fears," Palmer said.
"Higher education has served to
create a friction where we escape
the world."
Palmer encouraged students to
share their life stories with what is
taught in class. Professors should
value students' insights. Palmer
