Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

This MBA has exceeded my expectations, it is everything that I knew I wanted from a graduate level program and more. It offers full-time benefits for working professionals without compromising the expectations or challenges that are needed for optimal success.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: The faculty and staff do a great job of making themselves available. It is also evident that they are genuinely interested in adding value to each students educational experience as opposed to just working for a paycheck. Cons: The physical therapy program could use more business classes. The physical therapy profession is highly profitable. Many investors are looking for entrepreneurial-spirited physical therapists to open clinics. This will only increase as health care continues to grow. In order for Elon to be leaders in the physical therapy profession, they must realize this and understand that business classes are imperative for their prospective students.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

Elon is in it's second year of the Physician Assistant Program. They are constantly making changes to better the program based on the feedback from the first two classes. The professors are very knowledgeable and dedicated to the education of future PA's.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

It is the second entering class, however I believe it is well designed and will provide the information to become a successful PA.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2009

Only had to report to campus one Saturday a month during the fall and spring - most on campus courses were held over the summer and the online courses during the school year when we were working. Small class size (cohort)

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

I think this is a quality program that is great preparation for my career. The proximity to law firms and the County and Federal Courts is a great asset, not to mention the Business Court being housed in the school.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the program revolve around a great staff that supports and motivates the students while having the appropriate knowledge base to have the students excel in their goals of the future. The cons has to do mostly with the expense. It's fairly expensive and not much if any financial aide is offered. With this said, loans are most definitely necessary.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

As a first year law student it is tough. We are told that the staff is there to help and they do to a certain degree. The workload is difficult when you do not know what is expected of you. Once you get a feel for the material, after the first semester, it gets better. I believe that more diversity within the school would make it a better program. Law is also very competitive students are not willing to help each other to easily. The law school is located in downtown Greensboro so it is not on the Elon campus. Being downtown is convenient.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

Elon University's Physical Therapy Program is ahead of its time. The faculty here are student focused and really care about everyone's success. You feel a sense of community as soon as you walk through the doors. The health sciences building is brand new so everything is state of the art. There is no way to feel behind or left out in class because LCD TV's are located throughout lecture/lab rooms to assure everyone is seeing the information. It is hard to really say cons about the program itself. Of course we would like the work load to lighten up, but that's to prepare you for the reality of the career chosen. Elon is a small town, so there is not much to do around here but larger cities are not that far away. The student population doesn't seem to be too diverse, but that could be for a number of reasons.
