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.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

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.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Not a great atmosphere for anyone with a drop of culture or melanin in their skin. 'Nuff said.
