Your Elmhurst
journey starts here.

Located in a beautiful community minutes from Chicago, Elmhurst College is committed to helping you reach your full potential—in college and beyond.

Elmhurst students are active, passionate and engaged in the world around them.

I'm...

  • founder and president of the Pre-Dental Club
  • a first-generation college student
  • a fan of the recent “Wonder Woman” movie

I like the one-on-one interaction, the intimacy you get in class. We’re spoiled.

I'm...

  • mastering the art of walking backwards as a "Jaywalker" student tour guide
  • going to present psychology research at a national conference
  • leading a project to create a commuter student lounge

Elmhurst values diversity—it’s the foundation of everything we try to do as a college and as a community.

Madiha Ahmed ’19

I'm...

  • an international student from Osaka, Japan
  • planning to market apparel or cosmetics on international level
  • surprised by the amount of squirrels on campus

The students speak out and ask questions of the professor. In Japan, the students are silent when the professor talks.
