These schools are similar to Elon University in key aspects like size, setting, and academics.

I liked attending a small university and getting direct attention from professors. There was a lot of flexibility in coursework. There is also plenty of social options at the school.
There wasn't much advocacy or organizing work at the school. The school population isn't very diverse and it isn't really connected within the greater community.
I like the student-catered environment and the opportunities are there and usually advertised well enough that you can find them. However, if you look hard, you can find a lot more resources to serve you. Elon is well equipped to educate students and is well worth the investment.
Not a great atmosphere for anyone with a drop of culture or melanin in their skin. 'Nuff said.
