Tour Guides and Diversity Ambassadors at Elon University
Class of 2019
Hometown: Lynchburg, VA
My favorite Elon tradition is college coffee. This tradition is my favorite for two reasons: 1. Who can say no to free coffee and donuts (or whatever food is served) every Tuesday morning? 2. I love being able to have that time every week to relax and interact with my friends, professors, and the entire Elon community.
My most memorable Elon experience has been being a part of the New Student Orientation program. I've been able to help new students transition into a university that I love so much and knowing that I am able to play a part in helping them make Elon their home is the most rewarding feeling. This program has also helped me grow personally and professionally; I've met some of my best friends through NSO, and I love being a part of this smaller community within the greater Elon community.
I chose Elon because I knew it was a campus that was full of opportunities for me to learn and grow. I also knew that this was a school that was going to take me and help me become a better version of myself. Choosing Elon has definitely been the best decision I've made in life thus far and although my time here is limited, this university will always have a special place in my heart. Elon is home.
