Alumnus at Elon University
Class of 2019

Major: Human Services Studies

I chose Elon because I knew I wanted to study social work and the human services studies major checked off all my boxes. Additionally, I was looking for a school that valued study abroad and small class sizes.
My favorite Elon Tradition is the annual strawberry festival. It happens every year in May and it is a great way to celebrate community and our earth. It is also a wonderful opportunity for different student organizations to share projects they have been working on throughout the semester. Additionally, there are lots of different yummy strawberry treats!
Thanks to opportunities provided to me through the Global Education Center at Elon I have been able to study abroad every year of college. Most recently I spent a semester abroad in Indonesia. This experience changed radically changed my life and its thanks to Elon's connections that I was able to experience this growth.
