To get on air as a first-year student is not an opportunity you get at other universities, and I wasn’t willing to wait until my junior year. That is what makes Elon special. I could start right away. It’s not like this everywhere else.

From internships and research projects to study abroad, Elon offers a wealth of

My most meaningful Elon experience was the chance to intern with different engineering companies. It was incredible to learn more about how my education, both in and out of the classroom, can make such an impact on the world.

I’m so lucky to have had countless professors at Elon who helped me grow as a
student and person. Whenever I see them, after taking their classes, they always ask about my life, interests and future plans. These relationships are one of the main reasons I chose Elon. I didn’t want to be a number on the roster. I wanted my professors to know me.
