Emerson Hall, at the heart of the Elmira campus, houses a theater, gymnasium, pool, fitness center, chapel, offices, meeting rooms, classrooms, a dance studio, bell tower, and the college box office. It was renovated in 1995. When Emerson Hall was built in 1955, it greatly expanded the college's capacity to serve its students and the larger community.
