4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ive learned a lot so far

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Elon is an incredibly beautiful campus with a very good reputation. It is on the smaller size, but I do not think it is too small... I will never know everyone. Although it is not very strong in athletics, there is a very strong sense of community among the students. My only complaint with the school is the very expensive tuition and the lack of scholarship money given out. Despite this, I remain confident that Elon will provide me with the resources to become successful in life.

Overall Experience: My experience with the beginning of enrollment has been flawless

Overall Experience: Elon is a great place to go to college. Professors get to know you, class sizes are small and there are great opportunities for undergraduate research, not to mention the amazing study abroad options. I have made great friends and feel like I have come out of my shell at Elon. The campus is beautiful and the weather is generally good. Overall a great place to be. Academically it is challenging if you push your self and take challenging professors and courses. However some people don't choose this route and slack off. But you choose your path and what kind of student you want to be.

Campus Quality: The campus is absolutely beautiful and the majority of the buildings are as well. There are not always activities to do on the weekends besides partying, but if you have friends you can make it work.

Campus Food: For on-campus meals, it isnt the worst food possible. But there are better options not tied with the meal plan.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They are nice dorms and close to classes. Historic are the older dorms but also close bonding. Living-Learning Communities are pretty popular too!

Off-Campus Housing: There are a variety of places to live off campus, and the pricing isn't that bad at all. Also, since the town of Elon is pretty much just Elon students, it's very safe, and housing is generally still pretty close to campus.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Elon students enjoy the experience of attending the school, but as with many things there are drawbacks. The community is small and quiet, and other schools are approximately a half hour away. But even though there are drawbacks, and students can sometimes feel like they wish they were somewhere else, they still can't imagine being at anywhere else. Socially, there is a Greek scene, but students also throw parties in their houses and/or apartments. There is also an abundance of nightlife that is in Greensboro, which is only 20-30 minutes away and well worth the trip.

The academic curriculum can be rigorous at times, but the professors are willing to help in any way that they can. Elon's student body is great even though they can be a little difficult to deal with at times; there are not a lot of complaints about the University other than its diversity issues and the size of the town. But don't be fooled by Elon's size-it may not be for everyone, but life at Elon can be a great experience.
