From surprising starts to heart-stopping finishes and even tough losses, this entire season has said, “Why Not Us?” It’s a similar mindset that I have used during my time here at Elon.
Recently, the fear of acts of terror has cast a shadow over the joys of going abroad. In recent years, acts of terror — including domestic terrorism here in the United States committed by Americans and acts of terror internationally committed by larger terror organizations — seemingly occur almost every other week. These tragedies can have great emotional impact on anyone, especially those in close proximity to the situation.
I was first introduced to Elon University’s E-Rides program this fall. The transportation program — offered from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday-Thursdays, and from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. on Fridays — takes students across campus and to locations within a one-and-a-half mile radius from the Moseley Student Center. It is an extension of the on-campus hospitality program promoted at Elon.
