I chose Elon because...

I chose Elon because of its exceptional ability to focus on what student's passions are in order to help them explore what opportunities will be available to them in the future!

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

My favorite Elon tradition is the Festival of lights because it brings together the entire community! There is no doubt you will see students or professors you know and it has become my favorite way to kick off the holiday season. Additionally it allows students to decompress and reflect together heading into exams.

My most memorable Elon experience?

My most memorable Elon experience (so far!) is definitely orientation week because it allowed me to meet hundreds of new people in such a short span of time. It is crazy to think back on who you met that week and see now how well you have gotten to know them! You also get to work with your orientation leader and group, who will become the first people you truly get to know in your time at Elon outside of your residence hall.
