I chose Elon because...

I am someone who greatly values memories, experiences, and personal connections. Elon has allowed me to make lots of memories with great people, experience awesome things on and off campus, and make fantastic connections with other students, faculty members, and professors.

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

New Student Orientation! I was an Orientation Leader (OL) this past year and it was my favorite thing I've done at Elon so far. It was great to be able to mentor new students during their transition, as well as make a ton of other friends that were also Orientation Leaders. From OL training to move-in day to orientation itself, our whole orientation experience is incredible.

My most memorable Elon experience?

My most memorable Elon experience was when I got the opportunity to study abroad in Italy during a Winter Term (or J-Term). I learned so much about the culture there, and it was incredible to be able to experience life (while also taking a class and learning) in another country. I made some amazing friends through the class and will definitely try to study abroad again at some point throughout my Elon journey.
