ELON, N.C. — A downed tree has caused significant damage to the Belk Pavilion at Elon University.
The pavilion is part of Elon’s Academic Village, housing the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning and the General Studies.
“A fallen tree in the Academic Village has caused significant damage to Belk Pavilion and much of the surrounding area has since been taped off, including Phi Beta Kappa Plaza.
