Hometown: Wilmette, IL
Major: Mathematics with a Teaching Licensure
Honestly, I chose ELON because it was the easy choice. With family in the area, my parents would be happy and the weather was nice. I hadn’t toured, aside from after I had committed and went on a special “residence hall only” tour, so I was lucky to find a school like Elon that allowed me to choose randomly and still fall in love with it.
My favorite ELON tradition is Luminaries because, growing up, my neighborhood would line our sidewalks with luminaries and my parents would tell me that that’s the way Santa would find our home. It was a little piece of home that was here at Elon.
My most memorable Elon experience is one day after my Calculus 2 final, my friend and I were pulled aside by our professor and he offered the opportunity to do research with him. It was not fathomable to me to think that a professor would reach out to a student, let alone that student to be me!
