Your Elmhurst Journey
Begins 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...

  • 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.

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.

  • double majoring in finance and economics
  • a member of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity
  • a top-ranked League of Legends player

I definitely found a family here.
