Elon Memes not meant to be mean
By Mallory Lane
Memes are the new trend taking over Facebook, and Elon students like junior Bert Brokaw have caught on to the craze.
“Basically what I base all these memes off of whether or not I think a good number of Elon students will be able to relate to them,” Brokaw said.
Memes are easy for anyone to make. All that’s needed is to pick a background and type in a phrase.
Even though memes are meant to be funny, some are controversial. So where students draw the line?
Whitney Gregory is the Director of Student Conduct at Elon and she says the “Elon Memes” Facebook page is the responsibility of the users to monitor.
“It’s a matter of us all upholding the honor code with one another as opposed to one office or one person,” Gregory said.
Brokaw agrees, but he also says it’s up to the individual student to monitor what they post.
“There have been a couple that I made and thought about and just not put up,” Brokaw said. “I want people to be able to laugh but my goal isn’t to laugh at other people’s expense.”
Instead, he said the point is to have fun and create a sense of community.
“I think the point of memes in this case is to find a way to bring Elon students together,” Brokaw said.Explore posts in the same categories: News, Shows comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
