Established in 1889, Elon University in the eponymous town of Elon, North Carolina, has completed its transition from a undergraduate college serving regional students, to one of the region's top-tier universities. According to "The Review of Higher Education," through most of its history, Elon attracted "students of average ability" from family homes, but by the beginning of the 21st century, 68 percent of students came from out of state, and met high academic standards. Student living at Elon brings an eclectic student body to a beautiful campus that features oak trees, brick sidewalks, fountains and lakes. Student housing is available both on the picturesque campus, and in the Elon community in central North Carolina. The small town of about 7,000 residents provides a safe and comfortable area where Elon University students can spend their free time and find convenient off campus housing.
The university claims to "embrace its founders' vision of an academic community that transforms mind, body and spirit and encourages freedom of thought and liberty of conscience. This mission permeates Elon's curriculum, which spans several schools and colleges. Those with Elon University student housing may complete course work through Elon College, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Love School of Business, the School of Communications, the School of Education, the School of Law and the School of Health Sciences. In addition to a wide variety of undergraduate programs, the university offers master's programs in Business Administration, interactive media and education, as well as doctoral programs in law and physical therapy. In 2012, Elon was ranked as the second best University in the South by the U.S. News & World Report.
