One hundred years ago, the Elon University community had no idea how fire would become so integrated into the campus community. Beginning Jan. 18, Elon is beginning a year-long celebration commemorating the fire that destroyed most of the main campus. Senior Megan Curling serves on the 1923 Engagement Committee and has been working all year to plan large-scale events for Elon’s campus. “It's a beast, but it's been really fun to see everyone from across campus,” Curling said. “We have representatives from university communications, archives, athletics — basically anywhere you can think of on campus coming together to come up with these events. We have a lot of meetings and a lot of subcommittees and all of the things you can imagine to plan over a dozen events throughout the year, kind of hallmarked by four pretty major events that are in each of the quarters.”
