3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: would've liked to get more but didn't feel jipped

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Plenty of options with the varying dining halls and plus 7 locations

5 College Freshman

Majors: Coming into college I already knew what I wanted to major in so the process was easy. For students who don't know, there are classes you can take to explore different options.

College Freshman

Majors: I've never had an internship but I would like to have one. Apparently they're challenging to find.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Socially, it's challenging if you are not in greek life or many organizations. Academically, it's wonderful - teachers care and want you to succeed.

4 College Freshman

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.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Very popular on campus, but not dictated if you dont want to.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I love off-campus. Its so much cheaper and much less strict! Do it if you can!

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I love eating out with friends! Many good options!

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They can be tough but their policies are common sensical.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There aren't many scholarships available if you are not a fellow, but on campus jobs can be like a scholarship in the long-run, and many options for those.

3 College Sophomore

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!

4 College Freshman

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.

4 College Junior

Academics: Business at Elon is pretty typical. All majors have a business core and specialized courses in their degree. The business school requires internships and has its own career center to help you get one. The classes are not very hard, but the professors are really engaged and helpful in all classes.

4 College Junior

Academics: Classes are not too hard and professors are eager to teach. Access to professors outside of class is easy and they make a huge effort to help you do well. Registration for classes can be stressful, but overall everyone gets the classes they want and need for their degree. Business classes have a ton of sections so you have flexibility to choose professors and time slots you want.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: The campus is beautiful all around. There are plenty of places on campus to study or hang out with friends. The library is a popular study spot, but there are a lot of other options like the reading room in Lindner, KOBC, and global commons. Festivus is by far the best tradition and event at Elon.

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.
