I love everything about Elon. I was a student there from 88-92 and now my daughter is a student there. It has just gotten better. Terrific faculty and strong leadership. The campus is basically perfect-gorgeous and well maintained. It’s a special place.

I paid a visit to my nephew who is a freshman this year. The campus is just gorgeous. The buildings look just like what you want college campuses to look like. He seems to be having a blast and all the folks seem friendly.

Wow, a truely genuine introduction to the campus, it's staff and the current students! 636 acres of well manicured landscape that represents the experience that the students are also nurtured by.

Summertime is the time for college campuses to be in a state of repair and construction. No exception for Elon. That being said, Elon's campus is one of the prettiest around. Grounds crew does a nice job making this place feel welcoming.

Superb campus. Unfortunately, we visited on a rainy day but the campus was still fabulous. We had a great campus informational meeting and tour with skilled guides who showed us everything except a dorm room

This private university, founding in the late 1800s, is not large (approximately 6000 students) - but it is very well respected academically. The grounds are magnificent, with many new buildings and facilities. It is just a very impressive school.
