4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Many different classes offered. Most of the classes will be 8ams so get used to waking up early!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Nursing program is HARD. If you are dedicated, you will be okay but really focus and do not take on to much at one time.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe. I have lived near Elmira for many years and it's honestly not as scary and bad. Yes, there are many shooting and robberies almost every night. They only apply to certain parts of Elmira. Of course, do not walk alone at night as there are creepy people in Elmira. But i feel very safe and secure. People get scared about going out, but there's nothing at all to be scared about.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Meir and Tompkins is the best for housing. The freshman dorms are AWFUL but i mean most freshman dorms are not the best on campuses wherever you go. Twin Towers is where i'm living and lets just say it can get crazy. Definitely the party scene and its fun if you like long nights, but if you're a nursing major, you better just live in the library since you will need all of the peace you can get. If you're a transfer student, you get the crap of the dorms. For example, they just stick you wherever and switch you like 5 times until you start school. I was first placed in a freshman dorm as a junior and then placed in a great room in Tompkins and then last minute got switched to the towers just a few days before school started. They do not give you any say of where you prefer to live.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The hockey is probably the sport taken seriously and their games are a lot of fun to go to. You have to go about 15 minutes off of campus for their games, but its easy to get around in the town.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I don't think there will be a problem with safety

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I hope I have a roommate that can deal with my craziness.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't think Elmira has sororities. Which is good to hear because there was been many negative outcomes of sororities lately , so in my opinion The less chaos the better.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't really know much about the sports there, but I hope the people have good team spirit.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I got accepted to Elmira and i really hope i can pay to go there it's my dream school but my family and I have to figure out a way to pay 32,400$ a year! God know i don't have that kind of money but i hope i'll be able to attend!

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Many people party on weekends, it's a normal occurence
