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...

  • 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.

Jaime Ruiz ’20

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.

Yuki Kajihara

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.
