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

First year convocation! I love the transition from the acorn that you receive at the end of that ceremony to the oak sapling that you receive when you graduate from Elon.

I chose Elon because...

I felt at home the moment I stepped onto campus. It was really hard for me to find a college that made me feel accepted and not just another number in a system, and Elon managed to make me feel at home the moment I walked onto campus for my tour.

My most memorable Elon experience?

My most memorable Elon experience was definitely finding a major I had no idea that I was going to love as much as I do. I came into Elon as a biochemistry major and thought I was going to become a scientist. Finding a department that changed my entire life path has definitely been something that I will remember for a long time.
