4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Elon is right between Raleigh and Greensboro, a lot to do within an hour radius

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Elon is known for having beautiful girls and pretty mediocre looking guys.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am so happy I chose Elon. I would never go back and change this decision; I love it here!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Elon is great and the professors are the reason for it. Great staff

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Elon works hard to get all students an internship if they want one.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Health center is great if you can get there. It is about a half mile off campus and to walk that distance when sick is not the best feeling.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have never really been good at sports but kids enjoy going to 2-3 games a year total. Baseball is our best sport.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm a part of Greek life at Elon and even though non-greeks dislike us immensely, it is the best decision I made at Elon. I have a group of guys I can call on whenever and they will be there for me no matter what the circumstance.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am planning on living off campus the next two years after being on campus for two years. Landlords are very easy going and proximity to campus is almost equidistant to some of the further dorms, like Global/Greek Courts and Oaks.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is much better than on campus, Elon Phoenix Cash program allows students to eat off campus while still paying with tuition meal plan.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Elon is a great school because of the people who run it. Administration is excellent and strict where they need to be.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didnt apply for financial aid. I hear it is a very good program however

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Elon defines work hard, play hard. Sneakily one of the biggest party schools in the nation.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Great food and great availability!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Great options and a ton of new dorms being built every year

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Elon's student body is over all mostly wealthy, white, and straight, with a lot of Catholics. I've had a hard time finding anyone genuinely unique/interesting.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I couldn't afford to go to Elon without my scholarship. That being said, it sucks feeling like you have less money than everyone else, and even with the scholarships it is a VERY expensive school with VERY wealthy students.

Campus Food: Chick-fil-A should be kicked off campus. It makes students feel uncomfortable and excluded.

Food quality is pretty good. I wish there were more options for meal plans, because I NEVER use all of my swipes, which is a waste of money. I also wish there were more vegetarian options.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I have lived on campus all 3 years and plan to live there again next year.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is so much cheaper to live off campus, and the apartments are far nicer than the dorms!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of really great places to choose from, but it can get a little expensive if you go out too much.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: RAs are super chill, and even if you do get in trouble, you have a bunch of warnings before you actually get into serious trouble.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The scholarships are pretty good, but the school is so expensive that they hardly make a dent.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are always parties going on when you want one.

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.
