If you're not familiar with Elon, the university is worth a look. Elon ranks among the top southeastern colleges, and it wins high marks for student engagement. The university has one of the strongest study abroad programs in the nation. The attractive green spaces and red brick buildings give the campus the feel of an intimate liberal arts college, but Elon has the academic breadth of a much larger university. The school can also boast of a strong athletic program that competes in the NCAA Division I Southern Conference.
