Study Abroad has been one of the highlights of my experience here, and that goes without saying. Elon made it possible for me to have that experience. But that doesn't mean that little things are lost. There is nothing like the energy you feel coming together to support a team, already comprised of your friends, as they do what they love. Your first time seeing the luminaries, or you and your friends all traveling in packs of at least 12 the first two weeks of school. Everything about Elon is memorable. In all ways.
Elon offered me the Odyssey scholarship, which gave me a forever family. The encouragement and resources offered by the Center for Access and Success, in conjunction with Elon's institution constantly supporting and pushing a progressive message, make Elon a true Diamond in the rough.
Elon Day, it's a day where Elon is on the forefront of everyone's minds. You are able to see the impact of the university simply through the number of donors who reach out to take part in the celebration every year. It's like a campus birthday party. Fellowship and Free stuff.
