History in Pictures

From its first group of 14 students in 1871 to the present, Elmhurst University has been the backdrop for generations of history-makers and the scene of some historic moments.

Throughout our sesquicentennial anniversary celebration, we will explore this history in photos. Meanwhile, for photos of the University’s signature 150th-anniversary events on campus in 2021 and 2022, visit the sesquicentennial home page.
