The typical Elon student is good looking, put together, and preppy; some look as if they’ve just come from a J.Crew catalog. Guys are attractive and clean-cut, often seen with button downs, khakis, and Sperrys. Girls are well-dressed and put-together, many wearing Lily Pulitzer dresses and carrying Longchamp or Vineyard Vines bags. The ratio is in favor of the men here, and the majority of girls are naturally pretty and fashion savvy. Occasionally, you will see students wearing sweatpants or clothes from the night before, but most students dress nice for class. Because of the incredible involvement on campus, it’s not uncommon to see students wearing suits or nice dresses throughout the day also in preparation for a job after class or an internship to get to. Greek students are not afraid to flaunt their letters whenever they’re given the chance, so t-shirts are popular as well.
In the same respect, Elon is a close community, and while some judge their friends from their clothes and income, many students have the maturity and intuition to look past the materialism of it all. You never know what connection a student may have to your future, so don’t judge a person by their looks or clothing!
