    ELON is not what I expected or wanted, it is a pretty face with no substance. I thought the party scene was great my first year here. I realize now. People here have no future. The school is not a challenge. in fact high school taught me more. I consider ELON an epic loss of time and money.

    Elon is a complete disappointment, Academic's are not challenging, the students care more about boozing than learning. I am in the process of transferring. Elon is a pretty place , the clique attitude here makes it an ugly place. This was suppose to be a new beginning, after high school. Elon feels more like a high school than college

    I visited the campus of Elon this summer, and all of the buildings were beautiful! The people seemed friendly, and social. The nearby restaurants and bookstore also seemed very convenient.

    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.
