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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

Madiha Ahmed ’19

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.
