I chose Elon because...

I chose Elon because our Study Abroad program is outstanding. I knew that I wanted to study abroad as much as possible and when I found out J-terms were an opportunity as well as being offered a spot in the Global Pathfinder cohort I had found home. I also had that cliche "gut feeling" and compared every other college I'd seen to Elon, no where else stood a chance.

My most memorable Elon experience?

My most memorable Elon experience is S'mores with Outdoors which happens every Wednesday night during the semesters. A real fire, with free s'mores, and great friends is the best way to destress for an hour in the middle of a busy week.

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

My favorite Elon Tradition is Adventures In Leadership because I met my best friends in the summer before we stepped foot on campus as first-years. We were able to explore our new backyard and form lasting friendships.
