I come from a fairly small town in

Jan 30 2014Education
I come from a fairly small town in rural Maine. I have never been around such cliquey stuck up people in my life. Few students on campus are friendly and the ones that are, are simply fake. There is nothing to do on the weekends. The college and admissions tries to rave about how there is always something to do but there is not. It is too dangerous to venture off campus because it is in the middle of the ghetto. A month into my freshman year two people were murdered on the street behind my dorm building, and we were told this was a normal occurrence. As far as the elementary education program goes, it is decent, but everything for adolescent education is a complete waste of time. Everything is aimed towards elementary ed. Also the health center is full of IDIOTS. I almost ruptured an ear dumb due to their neglect. They can't even keep plants alive in there, you wouldn't see that on a tour though. Admissions is very good at making themselves look good, and the campus is beautiful but everything else sucks.

College is about learning

Nov 08 2013Undecided
College is about learning...that is what we are taught from day one of our lives. Here at Elmira you will learn. However, the skills to get a job with great ROI, now that is the question! Here at EC sure you learn skills. Skills that benefit you to only go on to graduate school or professional school. If you are a normal person and not a freak of nature that wants to be in school till the day you die; when you graduate you want to make a nice living (one that you can actually live on and pay your bills all at the same time)...this is NOT the place for you. Example, if you are middle class and your EFC is approx. 20,000 dollars (a normal middle class family) are sure as hell not getting any financial assistance other than merit aid to come here. So with that said you are going to be 30K x 4 years = 120,000 dollars in debt with a piece of paper, some skills (none really useful for real world applications), headache, and stress (OMG I can't pay my loans). So with that said...REALLY make sure this is the place you want to go and that you want to go on for further education!

This place has a few awesome professors

This place has a few awesome professors. Take them away...this place is screwed! What a hack-job! This place is stuck in the stone is trying to advance to the industrial age, but they are stuck in about 1410 AD as of the moment. 21st century? Yea...that is a long way's away. Also, admissions LOVES to lie to students and parents. This school blows!
