Elmira College Reviews
Review Elmira College
This place is a complete and utter joke. There have been three different Presidents in the last 5 years! There are so many empty dorm rooms that they try to hide them or give them away as singles, and trying to find someone to help you in Residence Life is like trying to find the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. The classes are okay, but the college is so small that it's impossible for them to offer anything close to the variety that bigger schools can offer. Finally the city is run down, and frankly dangerous. Just search for Elmira and Crime ... last month a guy was shot 10 feet from campus, but unless you watch the news you would never know because the college does everything it can to cover up ANY negative news.
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.
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.
