From Elon University

Experiential learning, outstanding teaching & mentoring, and an excellent four-year graduation rate make Elon a top-100 National University.

Elon has built a reputation as a university like no other. Our remarkable growth is tied to two central beliefs: students learn most deeply through engaged, hands-on experiences; and, students’ lives are transformed through personal relationships with faculty and staff whose first priorities are teaching and mentoring. Now, in a time of fundamental change, Elon University has emerged as the leader in defining what matters most in a college education.
