Reasons to attend and to not attend Elon University

To Attend

  • “You are in a class size of around 20 people where the professors enjoy hearing what you talk about.”
  • “The study abroad program is amazing.” [78% of students study abroad.]
  • “How welcoming Elon is with exploring classes outside of your major. It lets you discover things you may not have known you would be passionate about.”
  • “It’s a beautiful campus and a smallish campus. I don’t have to worry about driving or not being able to make it to class.”
  • “The people here truly love Elon. The student body has a tremendous amount of school spirit and pride, and you can feel that on campus.”
  • “Elon’s J-term is a really unique opportunity to study abroad, especially since there are so many study abroad options. It’s a unique way to go abroad without having to go for a whole semester.”

To Not Attend

  • “How homogenous the population is. People are generally from the North, White, wealthy, and straight. For some students who are the opposite of most of that can get uncomfortable.” [In the Class of 2022, 81% of students are White. The median family income of students at Elon is $208,300.]
  • “If Greek life is something you can’t abide by, it isn’t the place for you. It’s such a pervasive part of the campus culture and social scene. If you don’t like Greek life or don’t want to be a part of it, it may not be the place for you.”
  • “People don’t really care about sports. If you’re passionate about sports and want an environment where people are going to all the basketball games and football games, you’re not going to find that.”
  • “The lack of inclusiveness of different backgrounds in the nightlife, but you won’t hate it here just because you can’t get into a frat party. There are so many other things to do.” [See Elon News Network article, “Elon grapples with lingering inclusivity concerns.”]
