My most memorable Elon experience?

My most memorable Elon experience so far has been my time with Adventures in Leadership, an outdoor orientation program during the summer before my first year, and again in the summer before sophomore year as a facilitator. The AIL community has introduced me to so many wonderful people and throughout my experience, I have learned so much about resilience, leadership, and community building.

My favorite Elon Tradition is .... Because...

My favorite Elon Tradition is the festival of Holiday Lights every December. I love this tradition because it is a great way to spend time with friends and loved ones at school, celebrate the many traditions of love and light around the holidays, and enjoy our gorgeous campus.

I chose Elon because...

I chose Elon because I felt the joy and passion emanating from all of the students, staff, and faculty towards the Elon community. Every person I spoke to showed me how much they love this place and that made me want to call it home more than anything.
