Get Off to a Great Start

Your first year at college can be exciting but also intimidating. A new world of opportunities is available to you and it may be hard to know where to begin. Elmira College's First Year Seminar, which is the foundational course in the liberal arts and sciences for entering first-year students, will help give you a structured taste of the topics you can explore while developing the critical-thinking and leadership skills you will use to tackle complex issues.


Community Engagement

Proud of its history and tradition, Elmira College is committed to the ideals of community service. We encourage you to go beyond the excitement of campus life and find enriching volunteer experiences that will deepen your connections, strengthen your friendships, and leave a lasting impact on the community.

This unique session allows you to choose an immersive and intensive experience through the college. You can choose to travel internationally, study the sea, or try your hand at field biology. Whatever you chose, this term will build lasting memories that will prepare you for wherever you go in the world.
