What’s the best way to learn? By doing. That’s why an Elon education is filled with hands-on learning opportunities. Current circumstances make it difficult for you to sit in on a class, but we didn’t want you to miss out on what our faculty mentors offer students.


Virtual Class Visits

Class visits are available during our fall and spring semesters for prospective high school seniors.

Why visit an Elon class?
  • This is an opportunity to experience what makes Elon distinctive – our small class sizes, student to faculty ratio, and faculty mentorship.
  • Experiencing an Elon class is not about exploring your desired major, but rather a chance to see how you fit at Elon.
What do I need to know before attending class?
  • Schedule your virtual class visit at least 5 days prior to class.
  • Introduce yourself to the professor.
  • Please stay for the entire class; do not leave in the middle of a discussion or faculty instruction.
