4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are several modes of protection for students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of the professors that I have had are very passionate about what they teach. The classes and the work they give are hard and challenging, but most of them teach the information very well.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Elon has so many connections in regard to the job world and they prepare you for the world of jobs with career fairs.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some buildings are older than others and you can tell which residential places those are. But overall in every neighborhood. There seems to be a lot of space and not one residential neighborhood is worse than the other.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are Greeks for everyone who wants to be one. There are several options for those who want to join a brotherhood or sisterhood.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There are various people that participate sports and go to the games and such. There is also a number of people that do not care about the athletic scene.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is beautiful and has so many opportunities that are offered and many activities that will suit anyone that comes to the school. The work is challenging, but it prepares you for the real world.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Constantly parties, some frats, some club sports. Tons of pre-games, as for clubs and bars, they're more limited.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Frats and Club Sports at off campus houses. Only thing that happens on campus are pre-games. Impacts every student differently, can be avoided.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Fantastic professors, great classes, the workload is heavy and registration can be overwhelming, but Disability Services can be super helpful if you are in need of assistance.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Diversity has huge room for improvement, but they are trying. Besides ethnic and racial diversity, what is most lacking is socioeconomic diversity.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Alcohol here is huge. Much bigger than I expected, but it isn't impossible to not participate. Drugs are there and you hear about them, but I've only encountered them a few times. Peer pressure for drugs isn't high, people respect others decisions.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus crime is very limited. I have always felt safe, and we run on the blue light system. Campus Security is always willing to drive or escort you home, plus Safe Rides is a great option for students on the weekends to prevent drunk driving. Sexual Assault is always an issue on college campuses, but we have great resources for victims.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have loved the variety of courses and professors I have taken at Elon in my two years here. The class size is capped at 33 students, and the average class is around 24 people, which is what I love most about the class environment.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Business and Communicatiosn students are required to have an internship while at Elon, The alumni network is so strong and the Job & Internship Fair is always helpful. The Student Professional Development Center is one of the best resources on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: For first year students, there are a variety of options, none of which are bad. When applying for housing, first year students prioritize neighborhood. Neighborhoods open to first years are as follows:

Historic: About 700 first year students, most social neighborhood, biggest closets, themed around tradition, SIngle Sex and co-ed options, near a dining hall

Global: First year and sophomore students, Newest neighborhood, rooms vary, many Living Learning communities, themed around global engagement, near a dining hall

Colonnades: Open to all years, nice layout, closest to business school, near a dining hall, many Living Learning Communities, themed around sustainability, pretty quiet/less social

Danieley: farthest but really great setup. Mostly sophomores, some first years. Own fitness center, near retail food options, nice for business school students rather than comm.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Delayed Recruitment is a big plus when it comes to Greek life at Elon. Without it, I don't think that Greeks and non-Greeks would mix as much. It doesn't totally dominate the culture, but it can seem like it on occasion.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school has spirit, especially since changing conferences, but our athletics aren't all great and could have a bigger turnout

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At Elon, I have found my home. Now let me get this straight, at first, I was miserable and was convinced I wanted to transfer. But that was more just getting adjusted to college as a whole. I'm now incredibly involved on campus, hold multiple leadership positions, on campus jobs and I'm part of a few other organizations. Elon is unique because of the relationships you build here. I not only have made great friends, but I've made fantastic professional connections with my professors. I would do it all over again, but maybe if I could skip the first month or so.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Generally very safe, but alcohol mixed with frat boys always creates danger.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most professors truly care about the well being of their students and most courses are appropriately challenging.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The SPDC does a great job of helping people with their job and internship search.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The process for housing is confusing and some places are much better than others, but nice overall

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's very big and sort of cliquey. The frats haze.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Football should be cut. We lose so much money on them

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.
