Students should attend Elmira College if they are looking for a small campus where they will not be lost in a crowd.
Another huge attraction to Elmira is the school spirit. Our colors, purple and gold, are everywhere, and students wear college apparel on a daily basis. We are also committed to supporting our athletes, particularly attending hockey games. Our campus is residential, giving the campus a sense of community since everyone that does not commute is required to use campus housing.

  1. Class Sizes! Elmira offers small class sizes that allow professors to spend quality time with each student in the class.
  2. The professors! The people in general at Elmira College are all so friendly and willing to help whoever needs it. The professors take being a "Good Samaritan" to a completely different level. They want you to succeed. It is as simple as that and they are more than willing to help out even when it is not during their regular office hours. The professors I have encountered thus far at Elmira College, are friends and people I keep in touch with over the summers when I am home.
  3. School Spirit! There are so many sports teams that give options for events to go out and support your school! On top of that there are always events such as May Daze where there are obstacle races and blow up air obstacles as well as outdoor concerts.

The school is small enough that professors are very personal and give you individualized attention. You have lots of leadership opportunities. The school also has big concerts and fun travel opportunities. Term 3 is a lot of fun. It is also easy to graduate early here. You can double major because many majors overlap in terms of class requirements.

While Elmira College is aesthetically pleasing to look at because of the hard working groundskeepers that are around, should not base their attendance solely on appearances. Elmira college is academically challenging, holds an opportunity for sportsmanship conduct, and also provides a close-knit community that allows for the pride of becoming a Soaring Eagle to spread easily.

The school is private, so the class size is never above 20, giving a high sense of being an individual rather than a number. For students that want to travel overseas, Elmira has a third term that is six weeks long and dedicated to either traveling abroad for credit, or to stay on campus and earn credit in a fun way. Elmira offers a very diverse program in culture and humanities, where students go to lectures and performances to broaden our horizons.

You should attend if you are a person who likes a challenge and is very invested in their studies. You should also be a hard worker, as well as friendly and outgoing, since most of the students here are familiar with one another and the campus atmosphere is like a big family.
