My most memorable Elon experience?

Being part of New Student Orientation is definitely my most distinct Elon experience. I got to help new students figure out the campus and gained so many friends and mentors along the way while training, it was amazing. I feel like the experience made me a better person and a more knowledgeable Elon student.

I chose Elon because...

I thought I wanted to go to a huge school. But the more I toured big universities, I realized that what I need from a college is a place where I can sit in the front and ask questions. Elon was the last place I toured, but I knew it was right for me when I saw all of the opportunities it would give me: research, study abroad, faculty connections, and more.

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

My favorite Elon tradition is the acorn/oak sapling gifts at convocation and graduation. I love a good metaphor, and putting down your roots where you want them to grow after college is a beautiful sentiment.

I'm passionate about...
