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

My favorite Elon tradition is College Coffee. Every Tuesday morning from 9:40-10:30 the university supplies free coffee, juice, and pastries to the entire campus. It's a great way to get to know your peers and professors in a different context (outside of a classroom) and learn about interesting organizations, plus... who doesn't love free coffee.

I chose Elon because...

I chose Elon because it feels like home! I love the people, the environment, the classes, and the philosophies this school embraces.

My most memorable Elon experience?

One of my most memories was from last year! My friend and I went to an event called Gloga hosted by Campus Rec. It was, as you can guess, glow in the dark yoga. We got to watch the sunset (in Warriors Pose), and use glow sticks to see after the sun went down. It really stood out to me as people who were very much stepping out of their comfort zone and trying yoga (like myself) were with people who had been doing yoga for years and we all got to unwind, stretch, relax, and have fun.
