The “Under the Oaks” tradition is my favorite. This tradition incorporates both the convocation and graduation at Elon. I love the tradition because you get an acorn at the beginning of your college career, then at graduation you receive an oak sapling. This tradition represents your growth at college over the four years.
from the moment I first stepped on campus, I felt like it could be a second home. I was also impressed that Elon was the only university in the nation recognized in all 8 categories of high-impact academic programs. Elon leads the nation in engaged learning, study abroad, and global engagment. Plus, it had my major, was academically rigorous, mid-sized, and in a warm climate!
My most memorable Elon experience has been the Adventures in Leadership program. I spent a week with other incoming freshman, exploring the outdoors, and discovering ways to prepare for college. I made great friends and lasting memories. I feel lucky to be a part of the AIL community.
