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

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.

Janisa Hicks ’19

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...

  • an orientation student leader and coordinator
  • looking to make an impact as a high school history teacher
  • always up for a Burrito Bowl from Chipotle

I wouldn’t be the same without my OSL family. There are so many great relationships.
