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

I'm...

  • a biology major from Wisconsin
  • a black belt in Taekwondo
  • a volunteer coordinator

Elmhurst College helped me figure out where my passion meets my calling.

Kristen Hulbert ’18

I'm...

  • an orientation student leader and coordinator
  • looking to make an impact as a high school history teacher
  • always up for a Burrito Bowl from Chipotle

I wouldn’t be the same without my OSL family. There are so many great relationships.

Claire Sychta ’18

I'm...

  • one of two men in my 22-member graduate class in nursing
  • a former emergency room volunteer
  • a chef, who experiments with pan-Asian recipes and barbecue

With two or three professors in each simulation lab, there’s plenty of expertise and opportunity to ask questions.
