Nightlife is geared almost completely to college students around the Elon area. Saturday and Sunday are really big nights to party, but usually during the weekdays you can find a lot of people at local bars. Beer is really cheap on Wednesday nights at West End Station. Students also like going there because it’s so close to the University that you can walk, thus avoiding the risk of drunk driving, which Elon is strict about. Students also throw parties in their apartments and houses, which are usually within walking distance or a very short drive from the University.
Many of the off-campus parties are themed, such as pirate, roll in the hay, highlighter, and much, much more. If you’re not into partying at frat houses, these parties are fun to go to. They usually never have a cover charge, and you don’t have to drink to fit in. Also, fights are extremely rare since most off-campus houses are Greek-affiliated or affiliated with other student organizations. Duke, UNC Chapel Hill, and Guilford College are all very close, offering Elon students a chance to get away for the weekend if needed.
