Tour Guide at Elon University
Class of 2019
Hometown: Norfolk, MA
Secondary Major: Finance
My most memorable Elon experience was my time as a member of New Student Orientation Head Staff. I was part of a team of 18 students that was responsible for hiring, training and facilitating the entirety of the opening weekend for Elon University. Through this program I met some of my best friends, developed myself as a leader and made lifelong memories.
I was a senior in high school without a clue in the world where I wanted to go, when a friend of mine told me I should give Elon a tour. When I came to campus I went through the tour and remember my mother saying to me "so what do you think?". My response was "I could see myself coming here", and throughout my whole decision process I kept thinking about Elon being the only place where I had that feeling and every day I am so grateful for my decision.
My favorite Elon tradition is Elon move in day. While move in day is largely known as hectic and crazy, I believe that Elon does a great job at calming the storm of this high stress day. On top of this, this is the first time that the new class of students is part of the Elon community.
