Favorite things about Elmira College:

The small class sizes, the campus environment, and Peterson Chapel located inside of Cowles Hall are my favorite things about Elmira College. The student to professor ratio is 10:1, so student's really get that one-on-one interaction and get to build a connection with each professor, which I love most about the college. Another, is how the campus environment really makes the students and faculty feel like Elmira College is their home away from home. Lastly, Peterson Chapel's customized windows display the events that took place in Elmira and also the traditions within the college community.
