I chose Elon because it was the school which I could see myself being happy. I knew that I would be able to have a balanced social and academic life. I was also immediately sold on how beautiful the campus is.
My most memorable Elon experience would be the first day that I came back to campus for fall term my sophomore year. The campus wasn't some foreign place that I was visiting anymore; it was my home. I think the moment that a freshman asked me for directions that day I realised that I was no longer that confused and lost kid, I was now the one to help them. It cemented a new chapter in my life.
My favourite Elon tradition is college coffee because it is a great opportunity to talk to professors out of class and meet new people (and the free food and coffee are a bonus). It helps make the people around you feel like your community.
