Class sizes at Elon are small, usually no more than 30 students and everyone wants to be there! I think that makes a difference, no large lecture halls where people skip half the time. It was the perfect size for me, and it was nice that my fellow classmates took their education seriously.
My classmates have an amazing passion not only for our school but our class as well and they carry this passion int everything they do, making them energetic, enthusiastic, and outgoing.
A large majority of students are from the north, and I think many of the guys here are concerned with sports, which in my mind has great entertainment value but is really a waste of our nation's time. Many kids are just rolling in money, some I know shop online, get an item and well it's too small and just give it away....just a lot of kids here who don't see reality for what it is. I pay for many of my expenses while others just freeload and do whatever they want all the time.
Elon is a great place for leaders and for energetic hands-on learners who are determined to make a difference. There are not many introverts or students that are here just to study and get a degree. Elon is all about the experience, about becoming a global learner with a broad realm of knowledge and a set of skills ready to be applied to whatever field you’re entering as well as to every other aspect of your life. Elon is great for students that care about more than grades but are still willing to work, want to succeed, make changes for the better and overall, be happy.
There is definitely some truth to the preppy stereotype. You will see an abundance of blondes, Sperrys, Longchamp bags, etc. But this is NOT everyone. Getting involved in things you're interested in is a good way to meet people like you, and there are plenty of groups that fly under the radar. Get involved in club sports, student media, Greek life, etc. The people I know in Greek life, the people I work with in student media, and the people I worked on the student literary magazine with are all so different from one another. You will find your preppy types, the hard partiers, the hipster types, the very studious kids, and people who don't fit into any of those categories.
It's true that a lot of kids have money, but this is rarely important in any social situation. Most people did grow up in affluent suburbs of Raleigh or Boston. Upon getting to know people it's not uncommon to discover that they have 3 houses or drive a BMW, but these kids rarely advertise it.
Close minded and snobby. There is definetly one type of student at Elon. Other schools have a much more diverse student body and as much as Elon would like to make it out like they do, they do not at all. A lot of the students are from the northeast but they are snobby rich kids. Definetly a preppy vibe, especially all the guys. If you want to meet cool intellectual people don't come here
Most Elon students are from the middle/upper class, but so are students in every other private school. Some Elon students like dressing up classes while others were sweat pants everyday. No one really judges what others wear to class, so what you wear is really a personal preference. A lot of students are very preppy though. Many girls wear Lilly Pulitzer and have Long Champ and Vera Bradly purses. Sorority girls wear their letters almost 7 days a week. Students at Elon are very involved, with well, everything. Each Elon student will be active in at least one group, and all Elon students are involved with community service.

Friendly, ecstatic to be on campus. It's what makes Elon so great and welcoming. There is a lack of diversity, however, among the students. The school is predominantly Caucasian.
My classmates are outgoing and fun and some of the nicest people I have ever met and when I first arried they made me feel very welcome and comfortable.
My classmates are sincerely motivated to persevere in their areas of interest.
Everyone is friendly, enthusiastic, and involved. There are a lot of go-getter types that join every possible organization or extra-curricular they can, and everyone supports each other's clubs. Organizations are a very big thing. People are also generally just very welcoming and helpful, you could call it southern hospitality.
Boring people go here, would you be proud of that on your resume.
In every one of my classes, I am surrounded by diverse group of well educated students who are engaged in their education.
My classmates are driven, diverse, enthusiastic individuals who strive to the their best both in and out of the classroom
My classmates are focused, supportive, enthusiastic, open, friendly, accessable and easy to get along with.
My classmates are very focused and driven individuals that know what they want to accomplish in their lives.
My classmates at Elon are not only potential life long friend, but they also have great potential to become the leading figures and experts in the fields they choose to go into after college.
My classmates are motivated to reach their full potential and the goals they set for theselves, instead of superficial goals created for them.
Very friendly campus, you'll find and organization sometime during your freshman year and those people will be your core group of friends. But you will have friends in other organizations as well, just becasue the campus is so closely knit.
My classmates are often very preppy but nice people once you get to know them.
My classmates can be really cold in the classroom because everyone wants to be the smartest person in class. But outside of the classroom they transform into your best friend, especially if they need help with something.
Well rounded and very personable. Smart and insighful and dedicated to learn.
Classmates are friendly and outgoing and like to get work done.
My classmates can be divided into two different catagories: those who work hard, are driven, focused and involved on campus, and those who are mainly attending college for sorority or fraternity life.
My classmates are extremely motivated and academically-oriented.
My classmates are friendly, hard-working, and pull repetitive all-nighters to get the job done.
My classmates are a positive influence and a support system into higher learning.
My classmates are very goal oriented, extroverted individuals that can easily be stereotyped as overinvolved, rich, preppy, and conservative.
Supportive...all in the same boat
Elon Students are all very kind and helpful, and are very driven to make the most out of their lives and their education.
My classmates are either boozehounds or studyrats
The majority is conservative and preppy, but not stuffy. The people at Elon are the friendliest, most helpful people you will ever meet.
Half seem to be in Fraternities or sororities but only around 30% are, appear to be given a lot from there parents and take it for granted and the other half seem to be the Elon student that Elon promotes that they have.
My classemates are all on the same level. More females then males in my classes, but a great mix of people with similar learning syles and intelligence levels.
My fellow classmates are all very proud of the university that we attend and are a part of. They are interested in creating a comfortable, healthy, safe, green, and sustainable living environment for every other student on campus. They are thrilled to participate in campus activities and to promote the values that our university stands for. And finally, they are always in the mood to have fun!
rich and smart
You have to search a little to find the cool people outside of the Greek scene, but it is easy and very worthwhile to do so!
Its true that most students at Elon are white, but there is a little bit of everything. Sterotyping wise, I love how the students mix a lot with what groups they hang out with. For instance, many of the sports teams and greek organizations will openly hang out, and theres for the most part not that wall between the two groups that usually exists. Lots of students are surprisingly from the north, and once again it is true that most students come from wealthy backgrounds, but that doesnt neccessarily mean that they show it, which is nice
Students at Elon come from a diverse range of backgrounds and nationalities. Like many schools there are selective social groups like the Greek community. However, whatever your interests you will find a place for yourself at Elon if you look hard enough and the school works hard to help you find yourself.
The student body at Elon is full of sterotypes. I have never in my life been surrounded by so much preppiness. For a lot of students though, they may be rich white kids who like to party, but they also have actual concerns and worries that reach beyons their current social life. I find myself being pleasantly surprised when I meet a student who not only is the president of his frat, but also the head of the on-campus charity for Darfur. Granted, with the good comes the bad, and I have found that there are many students who will probably peak in college.
90-95% douche bag rate among frats
1 frat with a 60% rate, but party in a house called the "gay house" (yeah, weird, i know)
super rich bastards who have no concept of money and cannot for the life of them open a car door without slamming it into the side of you're own car...dumbasses, yes
smart academic students, dumbass on common sense
north face is required
Extremely considerate. A variety of people. Mix of political parties.
Although there is not a lot of diversity racially or socio-economically, I have found that the student body is quite diverse intelectually. Many students come from different backgrounds and this leads to great discussion in and out of class. Some students choose to not interact with those different from themselves but I found it very easy to find and make friends with different kinds of students. Most students tend to be liberal, wealthy, white upper-class students from the east coast. I dont know of any kind of student that would feel out of place at Elon even with the diversity it offers.
Nice, usually have money, worldly, smart, fun.
I don't feel Elon is very diverse. Most are middle to upper class white students who dress in polo shirts and boat shoes. However all student no matter race/color interact and are friendly and open to each other. People are very nice and just want to have a good time and enjoy life. We call it the country club. Students are politically active and voting is promoted on campus.
