Tour Guide at Elon University
Class of 2023
Hometown: Marshalltown, IA
Secondary Major: Economic Consulting
I chose Elon because of the relationships you can form, not only with your peers but also with faculty and staff members. With Elon being about 7,000 students, it is the perfect size to find connections with the people around you. Also, all class sizes are capped at 33 students, so you are never just a number at Elon.
My favorite Elon tradition is Convocation during New Student Orientation. Sitting "Under the Oaks" while listening to Elon's President speak about the school's rich history and how we are now part of it is such a special way to get welcomed into the Elon community! It is a perfect celebration for the start of your college journey!
My most memorable Elon experience was studying abroad in Paris, France and Milan, Italy. As a Business Fellow, I joined my cohort on a trip to Europe during the J-term of our first-year on campus. It was such a wonderful opportunity to learn about business practices and cultural differences across the world while also bonding with my Elon classmates.
