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

The more colleges you visit the better. Visiting many colleges, although time consuming, will help your son or daughter at deciding on the right college for him or her.

What's unique about your campus?

The scholarships are great and the class size. I love how I know my professors on a first name basis and they are always available for extra help.

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

To find the right college for you, visit as many coleges as you possibly can. You till know when you find the right on. As soon as you step onto the campus it will feel as if you are home. Once you find the right college for you, make the most out of your college experience. Get involved. Join clubs, or teams. Do extra-curricular activities. It is a good way to meet people who have similar interests as you. These people may just become your best friends.

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

It is quite expensive to go here...but the school is pretty good about giving out fiancial aid to those students to do attend.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I would not recommend this school to anyone who is looking for large school. If you are the type of person who just wants to float by and do as little work as possible I would suggest applying to another school. Elmira COllege would not be the best choice for you.

Make sure you actually visit the college. Stay for the weekend to see how the students interact with each other, see what the food is like, what they do on Friday/Saturday nights. Then also stay for a day during the week to sit in some classes related to your major. Do not let your parents pressure you into going to a school, make sure it is what you want; you are the one that will end up going there for 4 years of your life. Talk to the schools Financial Aid office and see what types of packages they can offer you. Most schools Financial Offices are very helpful and willing to do whatever it takes to help you through the process of financing the right school for you. Last but not least, don't stress out, you'll make the right choice.

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

The Freshman Writing Program. For the first two terms of your freshmen year you have to take Freshmen Writing, whether you passed the AP English exam or not. You have to read numerous amounts of books and type, what seems like, tons of thousands of papers. For the first term they even make you have Saturday morning class. I'm talking 20 page papers!

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

First, I would suggest actually visiting the College. Looking at pictures and reading about a College is not enough information to go on. Actually visiting the campus, seeing it in person, seeing the neighborhood it is in, and getting to talk to people who attend the college is a great help. Also, I would suggest applying to more than one college. You never know which schools will accept you and which ones will not. Applying to multiple schools is not only useful so you have back up schools either. You never know what school will accept you, so apply to all of them that you really think you will enjoy. Lastly, make sure you pick the college that is right for you. Though your friends may attend one college, or your parents may like a certain college best, in the end it needs to be the students choice. They need to be happy and comfortable in their school of choice. The happiness of the student holds the most importance.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who is afraid to make the most out of their College experiences, anyone who dislikes the color purple (It's everywhere, trust me), and anyone who is not prepared to work hard for their happiness.

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

Make sure the college that you pick will be a place that you can love, as well as a place that will allow you to grow into the person that you want to become. So many material things become involved when deciding a school that the important thing- being at a place that fosters your education and will give you the tools necessary to succeed- are left out. Be someplace that truly makes you happy, because having a great college experience is something that everyone should get to experience. Set high goals for yourself, and push yourself, because without the drive and ambition to make yourself succeed and being at an institution that encourages you to do so, success will not happen. College is about growing up and starting on your own path to what you desire in life, so make sure that the college that you attend is definitely going to be able to provide you with all of the right tools in order that you can live the life that you want to, the way you want to do it.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I brag about how community oriented my school is. I also brag about the food, how much the faculty pays attention to us, and how beautiful my campus is.

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

Visit the college before deciding. Apply to more then 3. Make a list of the colleges you want to go to in order from your first choice to your last. Do research about each college choice and ask questions, lots of questions. Get invovled in any activities you are interested in. Do not go to school with friends from high school. College is place to make new friends and create new memories that last a life time. Have fun, but be sure to do all of your work. Be sure to get enough sleep, but don't sleep through classes. Don't waist your or your parents money by skipping class or failing out.

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

Not enough activities for those students that do not drink and do not play sports.

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

Please visit the schools first, take a two or three days to immerse yourself with the college community, talk to any student you can find, try to get insider tips.

What's unique about your campus?

I really can't find anything good about this college. If I have to choose though, I'd say the campus, very small but kinda beutiful.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who loves cities, partying, extracurricular activities, nice faculty, research, academics, NON-FAT chicks, and good food.

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

Each college will give you about the same experiences and outcomes as the other, it just depends on how much you want to spend and how far away from home you want to be.

What's unique about your campus?

Small campus size because you recognize almost everyone even if you don't know them by name and this gives a family feeling between students.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Walking distance to classes, the food quality, and certain opportunities that the college gives me that most colleges do not allow such as doing an internship as a freshmen.

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

I would sugest to put together a list of 100 or so questions that are realy important to you and go to college fairs. Ask the college representives the questions document them, put them on the spreed sheet and the top then schools with the highest schools go to visit, and select your school for the best fit from thier. Also talk with students, faculty and staff about not only what they like but what they hear students wish to be changed or complain about.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

That the school is not a 100% free dry campus as they advertised during the tours and that it is a realy big problem on our campus. It would also have been nice to know that thier food is not as good as the catered meals they present to you and tell you about.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

That the professors are realy caring and that you do get one on one educational attention from them, the campus atmosphere, the third term trips abroad, and the purple and gold, The encore program.

Describe the students at your school.

Most of my classmates are extremely easygoing with one another, and are usually not too quick to judgment when it comes to change and things/people that are different.

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

Don't focus solely on finances when looking for the right school, but never push the money issue out of you mind. Yes, many companies, institutions, and such are willing to help finance one's education, but this is not always so. Look for a school that you can afford, as well as one you feel comfortable with. No matter how much money a school gives you, the ultimate determination of your success at a school is how well it fits with you on a more personal level. If you are uncomfortable with a school, be it it's size, student body, faculty, etc., you are less likely to flourish in the said educational facility. Never settle for a school that someone else has chosen for you. Only you can possibly know what school is truly right for you. Think with your mind, but also with your soul. Once you look deep within youself and what you desire in the institution of your higher education, you will know when you've found the right school.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The scholarships received when one is an incoming freshmen get renewed at the same level aeach year as they were during the first year, making one pay at least three grand more per year just because of increasing tuition and related expenses.
