     Welcome to Study USA

The United States has been described as one of the most diverse nations in the world. While Elon University is well recognized as a leader in the field of Study Abroad, we also know that one does not have to travel far to experience varied culture, geography, or climate. There are a wealth of educational resources located between Fairbanks & Ft. Lauderdale, from Bar Harbor to Burbank, or from the Haw River to Honolulu. Study USA offers opportunities for students to travel and study at Elon operated centers or through short-term, Elon faculty-led courses in a variety of locations across the United States. This website is designed to be your portal to Study USA!
