The Elmira College Alumni Association is made up of all who have called our campus home. The defining strengths of the EC experience – academic excellence, time-tested relationships, shared traditions – are the basis for the continued success of the institution and the worldwide EC network.

Staying engaged with your fellow alumni, as well as current EC students, couldn’t be easier with the help of Alumnifire, the first independent and organic digital networking platform powered directly by alumni and students. This platform allows for the organic networking between students, young graduates, and seasoned professionals, providing an outlet for mentoring, intern and employment opportunities, and creating a networking in a new or current community.
