Elon University Reviews
I loved my experience at Elon! It is not for everyone but if you are looking for a smaller school with a college town feel and want to be very close with your classmates and friends, then its perfect. Academics in the business school are tough and professors are really engaged. Everyone is hyper-involved in clubs and orgs and Greek life is big for girls. The party scene is great as long as you are fine with only having one bar. Everyone goes to Greek parties or house parties but it is great! Students are really loyal to the school and I have never heard of someone who did not love their experience.
I love this campus and the people I've met here. The facilities are gorgeous and there are so many great programs, clubs, and activities. The professors here are very engaging and truly care about their students. I also LOVE the small class sizes! Things that could improve are the gym (way too small) and the diversity.
I love it at Elon, as I write this it's summer break and I'm counting down the days till the start of fall semester! Just being on campus brings me joy, it's so beautiful that my friends and I refer to it as Elon Country Club, a joke that is made more funny by our on campus driving range and discounted student membership to the local country club. The academics are great and I was able to get a internship out of freshman year no problem. Fitting in is easy, if you are kid from NC or the northeast who likes to wear VV polos and sperrys you will bELONg (that's a tacky ass pun administration loves to use) here.
