My favorite Elon tradition is the Festival of Holiday Lights, because the entire Elon community comes together to celebrate diversity and inclusivity by featuring holiday readings and traditions from the five major religions. I am always reminded of how much I love my friends and family, and it is truly the beginning of the holiday season.
I chose Elon because of the supportive community of professors who truly care about their students. I also loved the emphasis on research and study abroad, and all of the other amazing opportunities Elon has to offer.
My most memorable Elon experience was studying abroad in Italy during the Winter Term of my first year. I learned so much about the world and met all of my closest friends.
