            I feel so fortunate for my Elon experience. First off, the campus is beautiful and nestled in a small, quaint college town. This helps remove outside distractions and create a closer on campus community. The university continuously invests in providing state of the art facilities and resources for its students and professor. The classroom size is setup much smaller than those large state universities, which allows closer personal relationships between students and professors. I was always on a first name basis I with all of my professors, who often went out of their ways to provide mentoring after class if needed. All of my professors were passionate about the subjects they specialized in, and often brought in their own real world experience in their teachings. I was fortunate enough to participate in two study abroad courses, one to Belize and another in Europe, which had a huge impact on my continued love for traveling and learning about other cultures. I graduated with a degree in Business Administration and went back to Elon for my MBA. I thank Elon for proving the initial foundation towards a successful career, and both an academic and worldly education that I still benefit from today.

            I started my college education at NCSU and quickly found out I was just a walking Social Security. Once I transferred to Elon I became a person who was cared about by my University. Elon has been called the largest small college in the south and I believe it to be true. A faculty who cares about their students and who learn your name and get to know you as a person and not just a student. Besides being an incredible institution of higher learning it is one of the most beautiful campuses in NC. I still wear my graduation ring proudly and when I go over to The Burlington/Elon area I refer to it as God's country!

            From my perceptive and personal experiences Elon taught me the importance of pushing myself and having balance in your life. A strong mind, a social and fun person, competitive drive, spiritual development and the importance of giving back. 1. You just cant show up and exceed at Elon Academically you need to push yourself to thrive as the bar is set high by the professors. This thriving environment helped me in the business world and taught me that you must push yourself to advance. 2. I also loved Greek Life and all the other social events that Elon provides. The weekends were always fun and also provided me with a lifetime of good friends. 3. Elon also is a place that respects your faith and supports your internal development and opportunities to assist with Community Projects was always present. I really enjoyed giving back. 4. The spirit of Elon was always the strongest at the sporting events and I liked the fact that our sports programs were always competitive in the conference. As Elon continues to raise the bar Academically, I hope Elon keeps the balanced student approach and does not lose that formula in recruitment or curriculum. Its a special place for sure and I am confident it will always be!
