You know you’re home by the sounds and smells that whisper their welcome and greet you faithfully, no matter how long it’s been since you last stopped in. Your new surroundings probably look and feel a lot different now. If you’re looking for that comforting place of refuge you feel you’ve misplaced, look to the Elliott Student Union. The something you can’t name, but want to be a part of is here. It’s found in the quiet study spaces, the cozy corners, the enticing aromas, the sounds of fun and laughter, and most importantly, the friendly faces.
When you walk in the door, your family knows it’s you by the sound of your footsteps up to the door and the way you throw your stuff on the floor. Your presence is felt before it is even seen. We can’t promise to hear every step, but we know the faces that are frequently hanging around. The welcome mat is always out and it says, come on in. Now that we’re family, just call us the ESU.

"Working in the Union has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. Being an ESU employee has opened so many doors and opportunities. Working at the Union, you gain experience and knowledge that you can't get anywhere else on campus. We are like a family in the sense that we all look out for each other. ESU is the place to be!" - Megan Baker
