One of the nation’s finest learning environments for communications

Elon University’s School of Communications dedicated new facilities in March, providing students with a learning-centered environment and the latest technological resources on par with professional communications settings.

The school’s new quad brings together 1,240 students and 60 faculty members in four adjoining buildings creating a 105,000-square-foot learning laboratory. The new facilities were made possible through the gifts of more than 40 families.

What makes the Elon School of Communications different is that I can learn something new in the morning and put it into practice the same afternoon. Our facilities allow us to push the envelope every day. By the time we graduate, we're unstoppable.
