I chose Elon for lots of reasons, but what really sealed the deal after everything was perfect on paper turned out to be my tour guide. She spoke with such passion and genuine love for this school, and after meeting teachers and students and walking around the campus in person, I fell in love too.
So far, it's impossible to pinpoint my most memorable or favorite experience, but here's one of them. In October, I woke up at 3 am with half my class and my astronomy teacher to go watch a meteor shower on the roof of the gym. He brought hot chocolate and it was surreal, truly an experience I will never forget.
My favorite Elon tradition is the acorn and the sapling. Elon pushes their students to grow in the best ways possible and I love how they have a tradition that represents that too. At Elon, you become your strongest self, and that's what the acorn/sapling tradition represents.
