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.

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

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.

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

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My professors all care about me and my success so much

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Varsity sports are getting better. Soccer games are incredibly fun to go to and are followed pretty heavily by the regular students. The University likes to push the football program a lot but it's still improving.

Athletics: school spirit sometimes isn't great

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. Campus Police are always there to help if you need anything. They will walk you home if you leave the library late. There is rarely crime on campus.

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small and teachers really care about each student. There are so many options of what classes and fields of study and students are oushed to experiment and find their passions. Class style will change with professor. Some classes will be lecture based and others will be discussion based.

Campus Housing: Elon has some of the best housing in the country. As a first year, the best place to live is Historic neighborhood. The majority of your classes are less than a 5 minute walk. Most first years live here so there are alot of community activities. The actual buildings are old but its an amazing experience to be surrounded by Elon history. After your first year, the best places to live are pods in any of the neighborhoods or the Oaks. You will almost always have a single room as a sophomore. All of the living options are very good. As a junior or senior, the best place to live is Mill Point or an off campus house. Mill Point is gorgeous apartments with a pool. There are many off campus apartments and houses that can be rented.

Greek Life: Fraternity and Sorority Life is huge on campus. Most people will go through rush as freshman in the spring. This also means than many people will sadly be dropped. Those you do join have an amazing experience. Tons of activities and bonding during their time at Elon. The frats do throw the majority of the parties and knowing people in the organizations is always good. The frats and sororities do have actvities for the entire campus that oughout the year. Thereare also academic and service frats on campus that students can join.

Athletics: Elon has a pretty good D1 athletic program. Our soccer team is one of the best in the country! The facilities for althletes and the non-athlete students are very good. There are lots of intermurals and club teams to get involved with throughout the year. The teams become very tight like families.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Elon is a home away from home. Everything you could want from a big university with a small tight-knit community. The campus is ranked as one of the most beautiful in the nation. Although the student body is not very diverse, everyone can find people who mesh with them. The classes are small and teachers love getting to know and keeping in touch with students. There is always a variety of good food options and they are renovating McEwen next year to include even more! The party scene can be repetitive but gets better once you meet more people and move off campus. The dorms are amazing! Global and colonades are gorgeous neighborhoods. Danieley flats and apartments are always doing something. Historic is rich with Elon history and you are surrounded by all first years, which means lots of friends. Sports are not the biggest but some teams do draw huge crowds. The soccer games will have full and loud stands in the fall. An up and coming school in the rankings and an amazing place to spend four years learning and making lifelong friends.

Party Scene: Parties are gross and grimy, but there's nothing else to do.

Party Scene: Parties are gross and grimy and exclusive if you're not a girl.

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: No diversity and certainly no interaction between racial and economic groups. Faculty and staff want to change this, but students don't care.

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: If you don't drink you're a nerd, if you smoke you're a convict. People are really judge-y.

Health & Safety: Safety is good, health is bad. Health center is too far away to walk if you're sick and you have to make appointments which does not make sense if you wake up with a 104 fever that day and all the spots are filled.

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.
