How to stay connected with Elon Admissions this summer

Due to limitations posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Elon is offering new ways for prospective students and their families to connect with campus this summer and find out why Elon is the right place for you.

With social distancing guidelines still in effect, Elon is offering prospective students and their families opportunities this summer to interact with campus and learn about all Elon has to offer.

Since current circumstances limit our opportunity to show you Elon in person, we have created Life As a Phoenix, a resource to help you understand life on campus. The website contains information about the Elon campus, academic programs, upcoming admissions events, and more.

Here are some other ways to stay connected to campus this summer:

Campus Visits

Elon is offering small group campus visits with modified tours this summer. Students can take advantage of physical and virtual campus visit sessions with Elon student tour guides. The private sessions are offered Monday-Saturday and are limited to one family per tour guide. Masks are required inside and outside on the tours unless socially distant outside.

Campus tours include an information session led by an admissions counselor who will provide details about the admissions and financial aid process. Following the session, a student guide will lead the campus walking tour. Our student guides love telling their stories and answering questions, so a tour is a great opportunity to learn firsthand what it’s like to be a student at Elon. Click here to sign up for your physical or virtual campus visit today.

Video Tours

If you can’t make it to campus this summer, you can still interact with the Elon community through a series of short videos. Campus tour guides will give you a taste of what it’s like to be an Elon student. From residential neighborhoods to innovative classroom spaces, dining halls, the student center and more, you can take a virtual tour of all the places our students love at Elon. Find all of our virtual tour videos here.
