SAMUELS: I won’t be playing Hogwarts Legacy

It felt like the internet was constantly reminding me of the existence of Hogwarts Legacy for the length of 2022, trying to sweep me up into the hype for the game.

Letters from ENN's graduating seniors: Baylor Rodman

Four years ago, when I set my sights on colleges, I sought-out a place that contained three main pillars— community, tradition, and opportunity. Just walking across this campus, those markers shine bright. Walking around constantly seeing people you know, and those you’ll soon get to know over your four years.

OPINION: Greek life: It needs to change

As the sorority events pile up in the spring semester, the buzz of Greek life always dominates conversations of Elon, my own included.
