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 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.

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.
