Tour Guide at Elon University
Class of 2023
Hometown: Monkton, MD
Major: Communication Design
Minor: Human Service Studies
I chose Elon because when I was on my first tour, I couldn’t stop smiling. The campus was beautiful, and the student body didn’t seem like just students, they felt like a community. Elon also showed me what a communications major was, and I found myself comparing their facilities to every other school.
My most memorable Elon experience was being apart of Fresh TV during my freshman year. Through the club, I learned how to use camera equipment, editing software, and was introduced to so many communications professors. I met so many creative people and got to act and film a short film that I created with my group.
My favorite Elon tradition is the luminaries. Right before finals, the community comes together to enjoy the campus covered in lights and candles lining the walkways. Each luminary has a student’s name on them so you can spend the night drinking hot cocoa and looking for your friend’s luminary.
