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.

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.
