I visited the campus last week and was immediately convinced to apply. The concerns I have are not aesthetic though, but inside the classroom and in social life. I am not the most social person, so I am hoping to mesh with people in my interest group. I am very hard-working and enjoy being around smart people, but I am worried that the student body will be very narrow-minded and snobby. I know that the school does not provide a lot of financial aid, and thus it appeals to a more upper class group. But my major concern is the academics. I like to be around people who are ambitious and I do not want to go to a college where people just want to smoke and drink all night and come to class hungover until they can party again that night. I'm fine with a little fun on the weekends, but I also want an atmosphere where there is interesting conversation and learning, not just highschool v2.
Sorry if this came off at all badly, I just want to know what Elon is like :)
I also really want an honest answer because I can only go to college once and I want to make the right choice. Some schools aren't the right fit for me and if that is the case with Elon, so be it, but I want an honest answer.
