What is your favorite Elon memory?

My favorite Elon memory is Graduation Day. With my family and friends in attendance we knew we could go out into the world prepared for whatever our destiny may bring.

What is something interesting that you want your classmates to know about you?

Coming from a small town like Chuckatuck, Virginia, attending Elon opened the world for me. I am very grateful for the teachers, coaches and classmates that provided those opportunities.
