2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I had a hard time choosing between "it's the worst" and "it's bad". It really is not all that great here and what I realized is that they put on a perfect face for college tours and stuff of that sort, but behind the walls everything is trash. It's too expensive and they even raised the tuition to a little over 40k recently. Alot of stuck up people. Parties are actually soooo embarassing. Not to mention so much of the class of 2019 have already transferred out, and I know alot more who are waiting for the end of the school year to leave, including me. There really is not much diversity here at all. Cant wait until June 1 to get out of here.

Athletics: We have a great gym and workout room.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the people here at Elmira but the town is small and kind of runned down. The people I met here are a strong influnce that keeps me happy with my decison.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Security does well for general problems; the community is notified of incidents quickly, both on campus (which rarely happens) and in the surrounding neighborhood (uncommon). There are escort services available if you don't feel comfortable walking alone at night, and security responds quickly whenever they are needed.
