Whether they're working with Stephen Colbert, Stella McCartney or the Department of Defense, Elon students use internships to get major experience.
We know you're in high school; consider this your sneak peek into the future. The Student Professional Development Center helps students with all of their career questions - whether they have a job in mind or have no clue what to do post-Elon.
Elon’s president, Dr. Leo Lambert, traveled to India earlier this year to catch up with Elon students studying abroad. Check out his Twitter feed to learn about his adventures.
If you’re just starting your college search process, you might be feeling slightly (or extremely) overwhelmed. I remember being completely blown away just by the sheer number of schools out there. Every college or university has something unique to offer and so it can be hard to start narrowing down exactly what you want. I frequently talk to students about what they are looking for in an institution and it’s clear that college is not “one size fits all.” By paying attention to what is important to you, you can narrow down your choices and ensure that you will find exactly what you need to feel at home.
Although these are really important factors to consider, the most important thing to think about is how you feel. As helpful as websites and College Board searches can be, there is no substitute for actually visiting a college campus and getting a feel for the student body, climate and atmosphere. After spending the day walking around Elon’s campus as a high school senior, I felt like I could see myself fitting in with the other students on campus and I loved the energy and how involved everyone seemed to be. You will be living here for the next four years and you want to make sure that you will feel comfortable and at home. All of the hard work will be worth it when you find the place that feels right!
