Elmhurst students are active, passionate and engaged in the world around them.

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.

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 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.
