    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.

    Elon offers a fantastic liberal arts school, opportunities for study abroad, and has an excellent employability rating. They offer both intramural and school sports. Their staff is always willing to help with tutoring and advising. It is the #1 most beautiful college campus.

    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.
