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.
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.
