My favorite Elon Tradition is the Festival of Lights that occurs every December. This is because this event was the first time I felt like Elon was truly my home during my first year at college. December is a time for celebration and family for a lot of people and I loved that our Elon community came together to celebrate this time of year all together.
My most memorable Elon experience so far has been going on a civil rights trip with all my leadership fellows during the Winter Term. My cohort really came together and bonded so well. I learned so much on that trip about the history of our nation, while also learning a lot about myself as well.
I chose Elon because of the environment and the people. For starters the environment seemed like a group of people who were motivated and supportive of one another. Everyone is striving to be the best version of themselves and I really value that. I also chose Elon because of the tight knit community between students and faculty and peers.
