Student to Professor Ratio is excellent
The academics and professors are amazing... the study abroad opportunities are fantastic and the facilities are absoltely top of the line
It can get kinda frat-y. A lot of rich kids go here and can make it seem very clique-y and very greek.
The connections you make at Elon will help you get a job after graduation.
The town is small, but Greensboro is 30min away if you want to go "out" and get away from campus.
Another awesome thing is We have a very strong Greek Life system which is for all kinds of people. However, if it's not your thing, you won't be an outcast if you choose not to rush. We do SO much community service here, and we really engage with and make an impact on the Elon and Burlington area as well as some other surrounding places. People volunteer here like it's their full-time job. We have an entire center called the Kernodle center that is dedicated to matching students up with volunteer opportunities. We also have a huge green initiative and have things like biodegradable trash cans and powerLESS competitions to cut down on the electricity used on campus.
I wish I knew maybe how small the surrounding town was
