Yesterday students and I visited 2 apartments of Elon alumni in the Upper East Side. Sarah Oldham showed us her apartment first and then we walked down to Sam Warren, Kim Jackson, and Liz Passannante’s apartment. Both places were beautiful! The alumni talked to students about subleasing and the process they went through to get their apartments.
