Prospective students should make sure that they visit Elon's campus and meet the teachers and explore the different activities available in order to decide if they want to apply for a academic fellowship or a learning community. Elon University provides so many different opportunities, and it will help to get an idea of what you want to think about doing before you get there.

    This school is everything. I'm an actor and I couldn't ask for better training, more talented peers, or more knowledgable professors. Plus, the campus is all sorts of gorgeous.

    Elon is a beautiful campus with greta academics. It is growing in prestige everyday, and as so much to offer. The students that leave Elon are well rounded, hard workers who also know how to enjoy life.

    Elon University is an awful school where majority of students are wealthy and are mean to local students. Although the education is okay drug abuse is very big at Elon with Cocaine being drug abused. Each year the school continues to go downhill from education to sports like football.

    I transferred to Elon University in the fall of 2013 because I did not enjoy my college experience at my previous college and I wanted to be closer to home for family and personal reasons that I was experiencing at the time. I came to Elon University because the school was in my hometown. The first week I fell in love with Elon University and its beautiful campus, the other students, and the professors. The classes were exceptional and I really enjoyed my learning experience. I would definitely recommend Elon University to anyone who wants a personal learning experience that is close to fellow students and professors.

    Elon is located in a small town near Greensboro, North Carolina, and is home to one of the prettiest campuses in the nation. The students here are friendly and sophisticated, many of them pursuing careers in business, education, and communications. Since it's such a small school, there is a very personal feel to every endeavor - from classes to clubs to even the dining halls!
