I chose Elon because of how determined, warmhearted and involved the students were when I visited. There are numerous opportunities to learn and grow with the experiential learning, numerous organizations to be a part of, hands-on learning in the classroom and the endless opportunity to get involved. Elon is a place where students are challenged to grow and think outside the box and help each other succeed.
My most memorable Elon experience was my January term class which was called Food Production. Every other day we went on a field trip to various food sights and companies and learned about the production of food and how this affects our country. This class taught me that learning is more than just a grade on a test, but experiences in the real world. The professor was so invested in our learning and I gained so much knowledge about the surrounding areas of Elon along with knowledge about myself and my interests.
My favorite Elon Tradition is going to the Luminaries which is when the whole campus gathers in the center of the school to watch all the holiday lights come on, hear music, drink hot chocolate and learn about different holidays. It is so special to me because Elon comes together as a community and enjoys the warm holiday spirit.
