Elmira College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
My college was amazing for me. I was a college athlete and a double major student. I had a lot of work and the school made arrangements and worked with my schedule. Staff is helpful and understanding. They want students to succeed and become successful. The student body is not very diverse. Most students come from the Upstate New York area. Racial diversity is slim. The surrounding city is not the greatest, but there are definitely a lot of things to do in surrounding cities. Overall, I would recommend this school for anyone who wants a close knit, family like, community setting for their four year college experience. The people here are loving and caring and will really push you to be the best you can.
It was a wonderful school with amazing professors and a tight-knit community. I loved the small class sizes and that classes weren't taught by TAs, and I appreciated that there was no Greek life and a low emphasis on athletics.
Elmira College is a wonderful school! The staff is incredible, I always felt they were looking to make better people out of all of their students.
Way too expensive! Pretty campus and small class sizes. Hard to be a commuter student, it was geared for those who live on campus.
Small school with small class sizes and teachers can give you one on one attention, but very expensive tuition.
This school was a terrible fit for me. Due to finances, I had to commute from home. Approximately 99% of students live on campus. I was completely isolated as a commuter and was never able to participate in any clubs or develop any close friendships like you would normally get to do in college.
I did go back to school and got another Bachelor's degree in 2000.
Just get a liberal arts degree if you are not sure what you want to do with your life. Then go to graduate school when you have more direction.
