Elon University boasts “a beautiful campus” and “one of the best study abroad programs in the country.” Although located in the small town of Elon, North Carolina, the school has an “emphasis on global awareness” and “encourages awareness and action [on] global issues” while producing “global leaders” that will “make the world a better place.” The global focus is displayed in the “phenomenal” study abroad program that is hugely popular with students. “Seventy[-two] percent of our student body has been abroad,” one student explains. “I got the chance to study in Los Angeles, Turkey and Dubai. Those trips were the best part about going to Elon.”
