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.

This school has done everything possible to turn away from the Christian principles on which it was founded. Many of its teachings are far removed from reality. I would never send a child to this school for fear of the poison which would be injected...More
