SUB provides entertaining late night programming to every Elon student with the goal of creating friendships and long lasting memories
— Max Gould
I joined SUB because I wanted to be part of an organization that I felt mattered on a larger scale. I really think we make a difference at Elon and add a lot to student life here. It teaches me more skills, about working on a team, planning and organization, and creative development, than any other organization that I’m part of.
