Corning Community College Offers Dorm Discount

Students at Corning Community College have less than a month to take advantage of a big discount on dorm life. They can get a thousand dollars off their room if they book before August 1. The college built the dorm two years ago to attract students from a wider area and to encourage all students to live closer to class. Executive Director of Institutional Advancement Bill Little says there are advantages to living on campus. “Because they aren’t spending their time in the car driving back and forth to home, they have more time to commit to studies, they have more time to commit to school and they have more time to commit to their own lives,” he says.
