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

My favorite Elon tradition is the celebration of lights! I love this event because not only are all the students in the holiday mood. But, it is also an excellent opportunity to learn more about other students' religious celebrations.

I chose Elon because...

I chose Elon for a lot of reasons. I came from a high school where the community was the foundation for not only personal but also academic success. Elon was the only school in which I felt that the institution placed a significant value on community to foster success. Connections are also important to the investment of higher education and Elon has phenomenal postgraduate connections. Community and Connections are the reasons I chose Elon!

My most memorable Elon experience?

I have so many memories here at Elon! I have made Some of my best friends whilst being a student here. Although very simple, I love golf carts and, me as well as some of my best friends I meet through tour guides went on a golf cart and, just went around campus! I think that is one of my favorite things about Elon, you can have so much fun in the most unexpected ways.
