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.
