any college or university with a greater thanFeb 14 2019Astronomy
any college or university with a greater than 10% acceptance rate is, simply a check clearing business. ELON acceptance rate ~68%. this is a greek & party driven clown college and diploma mill. ELON flat out sucks. Zero respect in the real world. Unless your employment will be village drunk. Stay away from this poor excuse for anything but sleep away high school.

i graduate from this dump this spring. so far every interview i have gone on, resulted in the same question. where did you go to school? nobody in the industry knows where this place is or adds any value to a degree from here. what a waste of time and money. i hope to go to graduate school and bury my past here. i wish i could go back and choose a real school with a real future. this place is a diploma trap.

Elon, is a terrible palce to attend, I graduated almost 30yrs ago. I am still looking for a job. still, I enjoyed the tailgates, frat parties, football games and spring break in Florida. Not a total loss, but close.....Find a better place to waste your time, find a better diplmoma mill. This place flat-out sucks....

as a communications major from this pretend universityFeb 24 2015Communications
as a communications major from this pretend university I would communicate to you, go to the parties, the tailgates, enjoy greek life, it will be the most fun you will have. Unfortunately you will be prepared for nothing. Keep your memories close, they will be all you will take from this aweful example of a university. I want my four years and money back. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!
Read the reviewsFeb 23 2015Animal Studies
Read the reviews. The positive ones make the diploma mill sound like a sad, want to be place. Save your parents money. Pick one of the other 100 colleges in NC.

If you missed outFeb 23 2015Communications
If you missed out on all the high school drama and exclusiveness. You can relive those days. It's a sleepover hs. When the other 100 colleges in NC do not accept you this sh t hole will. What a joke and waste of money
the tuition is not worth the return onFeb 18 2015Communications
the tuition is not worth the return on investment, elon is viewed as a party school, you will be in debt while there, both for tuition and trying to keep up with the no caring rich students, you will be reminded of the time you spent at elon long after you live, student loans, your base salary will not cover. if you plan to party like a greek rock star, graduate and marry a guy who works on wall street. maybe work for a few years and run up more debt so your wall street spouse can pay it off, THEN THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!

Dr. Copeland seems like your best friend onlySep 14 2010Communications
Dr. Copeland seems like your best friend only until you have to ask him a question about your doubts over the program does he become arrogant and defensive. Unlike his sweet demeanor most of the time, underneath that he is a self righteous professor with little to no patience for a student. Not friendly at all.
Elon University has no appeal location in theSep 14 2010Communications
Elon University has no appeal location in the middle of no where. Ther new innovative Imedia Program that I entered is nothing more then smoke and strings. You waste money not even learning the skills you need to get a job in the long run. It is only in its second year so obviously they don't even know what their doing. Please save your money and believe me this school will not further you but just take your money and leave you with little to no skills.
Elon is an amazing University whose reputation isMay 18 2010Business - Management and Administration
Elon is an amazing University whose reputation is continuously on the rise. It has become more competitive to get in to for that reason even in the four years that I have gone here. Student organizations are prevalent on campus and have something for everyone. The classes sizes are never larger than 30 and professors continuously keep students engaged. Study abroad trips are common among students and community service activities incorporate experiential learning. I couldn't see myself going anywhere else and received a great education in the business school which continues to grow in size and strength. All the students that go here couldn't imagine going anywhere else and have all loved their experience.
