Elon is right down the road from the best place to get a technology job in the United States. You can make a case for the Silicon Valley in California or the Massachusetts Institute of Technology being better, but none of them can claim what the Research Triangle Park in North Carolina can: it’s the biggest research park there is. Not just in the U.S., but in the entire world. There are almost 200 companies here, and more recognizable names in the industry than I can list here. Going to school at Elon will help you get your foot in the door here if you so desire. Much of the social life at Elon is involved with the school’s Greek life, much more so than at the typical university. If students aren’t in a fraternity or sorority, odds are they know someone who is. And if they do, they’ll get the invite to go to one of the many Greek life parties on the weekends. In a small place like Elon, there’s not a lot to do so weekends are spent on campus and at events like frat or sorority get togethers. If students are feeling particularly ambitious, Greensboro, Durham, and Raleigh are within driving distance.
