Tours & Interviews


Explore Elmira College through the eyes of a current student (Gold Key) on a tour. Campus tours are offered weekly, Mondays through Saturdays, throughout the year and depart from the terrace level of Hamilton Hall, the Office of Admissions. Your tour guide, a current EC student and member of the Gold Key Society is a master of the art of walking backwards and presenting campus lore at the same time.  Your Gold Key will expose you to many aspects of our College community including residence life, academics, dining services, student activities and more. As the tour will last approximately an hour and a half, please dress accordingly and wear comfortable shoes. Our value of personal attention shines through on our tours, so be prepared for a small group.

During the interview, we will try to answer all of your questions about EC.  Interviewing is one of the best ways for our Admissions team to get to know who you are as a person, what you are passionate about, and where you see yourself going in the future. This is your opportunity to bring to life the components of your application through an informal conversation.
