Cultural Activities

Studies indicate that success in the first year of college depends on how effectively students connect to their university-both academically and socially.  Everything a student does at an university, both inside and outside the classroom, supports (or opposes) the process of learning.  We understand the importance of providing activities that will provide meaningful and rewarding experiences.

Here are just a few examples of activities and events the ELC has participated in:

  • Exhibits at The Mint Museum, The Light Factory, and Afro-American Cultural Center
  • Renaissance Faire
  • Performances at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center
  • Plays and musicals at UNC Charlotte
  • Literary Festivals
  • Dinners at faculty members’ homes
  • Poetry Slams
  • Scholarly Conferences
  • Attending UNC Charlotte Sporting Events
