What is your overall opinion of this school?

Elmira was such a poor experience and I am beyond excited to be transferring. There are so few students on campus that two entire dorm buildings can be shut down. The surrounding area is so dangerous and it translates to campus. The professors are not always the best. They are unable to keep enough students coming in, or enough to stay. The food is very disappointing. The school will put on a good show when parents and families come to campus, but once they leave, it goes down hill once again. It is almost impossible to eat on campus food on the weekends because there are almost no options.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a very small school. Everyone knows each other; either by face or actual name. That is what drew me to it. The food is not great, which is unfortunate. However, the school offers a lot of facilities, resources, and things for the community and campus life to partake in. Just one last thing. If you ever need a history class and Myra Glenn is the professor, do not take it. You will not get an A or even a B. She is a great lecturer, but a very strict grader. I caution you reader.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Elmira College. The class sizes are small and the campus is very clean. The gym was redone and so was the dining hall. The basketball team is close and I adjusted well to my first year. Fortunately I got half of my education paid for because I was recruited to play basketball. Another thing I love is that the RAs check in regularly. Elmira is a place where you can get a lot of support. The people are nice and the campus is gorgeous. We were rated as the top Liberal Arts College.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally love the college, there are a few things that could be fixed. For example, we just changed our dining service provider, and while the quality of food is significantly better than the pervious provider, the options are very limited and the portion sizes are significantly smaller.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Elmira College was founded in 1855 as an all girls college. We we the first college to provide women with an equal degree to a man. As a female that is something I am very proud of because I truly believe we are not defined by our gender, but rather our qualities as a person. The staff is also very flexible and willing to help you in every way possible. As a student athlete it is very difficult to manage sports and school. Professors are more than willing to work around assignments and to help make sure you are succeeding in and out of the classroom. Elmira College has a great student body. We are a group of creative students who know what it means to be family and support one another. Elmira is a truly amazing place and I am happy to have had the opportunity to spend my past four years at such a great college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Elmira was my first choice because of the beautiful campus and value on academics. Not only are the professors knowledgeable, but they are also available for the most part outside of office hours. The traditions that are upheld at Elmira really bring the campus community together. I really like how there are so many different clubs and opportunities for students.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

There's is a big population of white students, very little minorités in this school and that is one of the things that it lacks the most.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

No activites and no clubs, student life at EC is dead and considering that you have to drive everywhere you go, if you don't have a car you're sick in the college.

Describe the students at your school.

Most students at EC are beyond weird and although there's are more girls than guys, most of the girls never interact with anyone outside of there circles.

What are the academics like at your school?

Very poor academics at this school as the teachers are not remotely qualified. It's difficult to get into the classes you want.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Emily, you have worked so hard to reach this point in your life. You picked up the pieces of your troubled past and ran foward; plowing through any obsticle that you encountered. College is indeed a reality and you will be leaving home in less than a year. What on Earth should you expect? Sure, everyone has their own stories to tell and advice to share, but how can you prepare yourself? College seems terrifying. At this point you are probably thinking that professors are more like mythical creatures than actual people and you are awaiting the terrors of shared living space. Let's not forget the all night homework sessions. But, I have good news. There is absolutely no reason for you to worry. As long as you are responsible and keep your work ethic, college will be the most amazing experience of your life. Don't be afraid to befriend those you normally would not. Talk to your professors. Apply to research programs, becuase you never know, you might just get accepted. The worst thing you can do is stress and doubt yourself. College is such a life changing transition, so sit back and enjoy it.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about Elmira College is the lack of time that seems to exist. I spend my days attending class, studying, working, and socializing, but I want to do more. I want to participate in more clubs and activities or complete more work hours, but campus time simply moves at a faster pace. A science fictional scenario surrounds the city of Elmira; preventing students from taking all the time they require each day.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Those who are not kind and hardowrking should not attend Elmira. Students must be willing to prepare themsleves for real world work ethics. Elmira College invites students who are willing to volunteer, intern, work, study, and preform research. The best students in Elmira are not only able to balance the demands of the acedemic aspects of school, but they are also social and friendly. An potential Elmira student must be able to complete their requirements while keeping a positive environment on campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and give my high school senior self advice about the transition to college what would I say? First I would tell myself to pay better attention and try harder in my math courses because it’s really not as hard as you think it is. I would also tell myself to take the SAT’s and apply to colleges, because working on cars in a body shop isn’t as great as you might think it is. I would also stress how important it is to go to college right after high school, because it would be a lot easier to transition to college then as opposed to waiting till your 33 years old and married with a baby on the way. Also to listen to the advice mom and dad give you, they are not really trying to control your life. By following the values they taught you will keep you from making some bonehead decisions along the way. Now only if it was really possible for people to go back in time and set themselves on the right track, just think of the improvement in life everyone would have.
