Tour Guide at Elon University
Class of 2020
Hometown: St. Louis, MO
Secondary Major: Finance
After stepping onto campus, I immediately fell in love with Elon and everything that it offers. As a business student, I was looking for a university with a strong business program that offered opportunities that would give me experiences outside of the classroom. The Business Fellows program, study abroad opportunities, and the Student Professional Development Center are all tools that I have been able to take advantage of and have shaped my Elon experience thus far.
During Winter Term of my first year, I studied abroad in Dubai and Abu Dhabi with my Business Fellows cohort. The trip was filled with visiting landmarks, learning the culture, and visiting businesses. The class that went along with the trip was about business and culture in the U.A.E, so each company that we visited gave us an inside look on how businesses work in Middle Eastern countries.
My favorite Elon Tradition is the Holiday Tree Lighting and Luminary Ceremony. The holiday season is my favorite time of the year and it is so special to start the season off right surrounded by friends and Elon community members to watch the campus light up.
