Elon Town Center

The new Elon Town Center towers over Williamson Avenue. Built to open last semester, the Center is home to the campus’s new Barnes and Noble bookstore, Pandora’s Pies, and Smitty’s Homemade Ice Cream Shop.

The bookstore, previously located in Moseley Center, is two stories high and features the only escalator in Alamance County.  The size of the new bookstore offers a greater selection of Elon apparel and school supplies, and allows for more items to be on display.

Pandora’s Pies, opened earlier this year, is an independent, local restaurant that creates pizza from organic ingredients. It shares the first floor of the Town Center with Smitty’s Ice Cream Shop.  Smitty’s has another location on South Church St. in Burlington, but both locations are popular with Elon students.

Elon’s student newspaper, The Pendulum, was another organization that benefited from the new building project; it gained new offices on the third floor of the Town Center, which was built on the site of their original offices.

The Elon Town Center is part of the Elon Commitment, which aims to nurture the Elon community. Other facilities that will be built include the Moseley Center expansion, the Global Neighborhood, and the Station at Mill Point.

About Eric Dinkins

Hi. My name is Eric Dinkins. I'm a freelance writing and design professional in Chicago. Thank you for visiting my website, where you can view a collection of some of the finest work I've completed since graduating from Elon University in North Carolina in May, 2014. I know how to write and design content for print and digital use. I also know how to edit content and optimize it for the web so users are able to find what they're searching for quickly and efficiently. If you're interested in working together, please reach out. I am always looking to explore new opportunities. Since moving to the Windy City in September, 2015, I have worked as a writer and designer for newspapers, magazines, marketing companies and start-ups. When I'm away from my desk, you usually will find me at a coffee shop, local brewery or riding my bike along the Lakefront Trail. I also love to travel and I enjoy the outdoors. There's nothing more exciting than camping in the wilderness, and nothing more relaxing than sitting around a campfire under the stars.
