The right culture for success…

Elmira College’s small size is one of its many strengths.  With a student-faculty ratio of 9:1, faculty truly get to know their students and become invested in their success.  Between the high degree of contact between faculty and students and the fact that 100% of our students participate in a career-oriented internship, employers and graduate schools know that our graduates have explored their career interests in depth and with professional supervision.  That combination helps produce a student success rate of 98% in terms of Elmira graduates being enrolled in graduate programs or employed intheirchosen fields within six months of graduation.
