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 information systems major
  • interning at the CME Group in downtown Chicago
  • a huge fan of chicken parmesan and the White Sox

What I like about Elmhurst is that it’s small but not too small. There’s always something to do.

Jake Depaul ’18

I'm...

  • a music business and jazz studies major
  • interested in starting a music festival some day
  • a huge fan of "Inside Out," the Amy Poehler animated movie

I want to show [my brothers and sisters] that they can live their dreams, that they can work toward something bigger than what they might otherwise imagine.
