It was Mountain Day on campus today!!!  It only took the students ONE night of singing to convince Dr. Meier to grant the highly sought after Mountain Day. 

Wonder what I'm talking about, are you asking yourself what is Mountain Day?!?  Well my dear followers check out the description on Mountain Day after the jump.

A new blogger!

Hello to all of our faithful followers!

Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Patrick Gillette, and I am an Admissions Counselor in the Office of Admissions here at Elmira College.  I will be contributing here on the blog from time to time to bring you the latest news and inside scoop about what is happening here at EC.  If you want to know more about me click here to see my bio.

So it's that time of year again, along with the changing leaves and the delicious return of pumpkin lattes at Dunkin' Donuts the fall also brings with it extensive travel for the staff in the Office of Admissions.  We will be on the road from now until November; you will find us out on the road visiting high schools and working at college fairs, and talking a lot about Elmira College.  Hopefully a counselor will be visiting your school or a college fair in your area; but just because the counselors are out on the road, that doesn't mean that the office is closed.  We are open 6 days a week for individual visits; so schedule your visit to campus now or if you have already visited our "picture postcard perfect campus" leave a comment here and tell others about your experience.

Be sure to check back often and find out what is going on here on campus, and if you have any suggestions or recommendations about things you would like to hear about let me know!!!  I want to cover things that are interesting to you!
