I'm...

  • a finance and international business major
  • a huge coffee fan and worked at the Frick Center coffee bar
  • known to put Sriracha hot sauce on anything

My study abroad trip [to Rome and other European cities] helped me get the internship. My interviewer was Italian and we made a connection.

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...

  • 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.
