I have learned a lot through the required freshman courses. Freshman writing has taught me a lot about writing that I didn't learn in high school. Encore has helped me to broaden my view on music and performing arts. Community service has taught me that helping others can be very gratifying.

    elmira college is a small, liberal arts college that can be a second home to many people. there is not that much diversity, but just enough to be considered diverse. it seems, though, that there is an increasing amount of higher income students attending the school.

    The campus is small, but has some very nice newly renovated buildings. The surrounding area is urban and depressing. The people there are nice, though.

    Elmira is a good school, small, and the people here are very friendly. Elmira gives you a close personaly relationship with faculty and students, but the amount Elmira does is not worth the money you have to pay to attend.

    Made great friends while at this college. The professors in my major, as well as many others, are really helpful and willing to work with you if you show the will power. The main downfall is the price and sometimes the run-around you get while trying to get information about different things.

    Going to Elmira College was a really great decision. Obviously, there are ups and downs to going to such a tiny private school, but I kept a positive outlook throughout my four years here, This school has a great support system and the administration really strives to keep each student active within the college community.

    As the student to faculty ratio is 16 to 1, you are able to feel more connected in the classroom. The people are all friendly and the school spirit is high. If you want the professors to know you by name and help you when you need it, this school is for you!

    Elmira College is a wonderful small private college that is a home away f from home. This maybe a small school but everyone you meet becomes a part of your family. The experiences you will have will stay with you for a life time.
