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

My favorite Elon tradition is the festival of Holiday Lights because campus looks absolutely gorgeous with the trees draped in lights and the paths lined with luminaries. Walking around with friends to search for the luminaries with our names on them and enjoying the spirit of the season is such a lovely experience. Plus it gives people an opportunity to share the holiday traditions of various cultures!

My most memorable Elon experience?

Though I haven't experienced Elon in a world without a pandemic, I've still loved the experience of collaborating with my classmates and meeting new people. Some highlights include rehearsing for Elon Cares, our Leadership Fellows retreat, and meeting upperclass-people while filming for Collage. I'm excited to see Elon back in full swing!

I chose Elon because...

I applied to Elon because of the prestige of our Music Theatre program. But I ultimately chose to attend Elon because I felt an immediate sense of community on campus. Elon has also allowed me to learn and experience points of interest outside of my major. For example, even though I am a theatre major, I am still able to continue my intensive dance and choreography training, as well as expanding my skills through Leadership Fellows. It has given me the ability to prepare for a career in the arts where I can continue to advocate for the equality of marginalized identities in the industry.
