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...

  • 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.

I'm...

  • a two-year letter winner on the lacrosse team
  • coaching middle school lacrosse club travel teams
  • a huge fan of the Cubs and Miami Dolphins

I saw the business operations side of the Dolphins football team and decided that’s something I’d like to pursue.

Christian Galante ’19

I'm...

  • the events chair for the Spiritual Life Council and Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority
  • passionate about stopping animal cruelty
  • a huge fan of Harry Potter and Game of Thrones

I love how small Elmhurst is, and that if I ever need help, it’s easy to find.
