Favorite thing about Elmira College: The supportive environment.  Support received from co-workers and students is immeasurable.  Students and staff come together to work towards common goals such as Cuddles for a Cure.  The student club Colleges Against Cancer invited staff to bring in their dogs for students to cuddle.  Everyone working together makes us a great community.

Most frequently asked question about Financial Aid:
Q: Will my financial aid change from year to year?  
A: If family situation remains relatively unchanged, you can expect comparable financial assistance.  Federal student loan amounts increase after the first year.
