Welcome to Elmhurst College!

Orientation at Elmhurst College is a great opportunity to explore, meet new people, get accustomed to college life, and build friendships that can last a lifetime.

First-Year Students

Our four-day Orientation program is full of excitement. Through service projects, team-building exercises and more, you examine your beliefs, build academic skills and become a part of the Elmhurst College community. The College will send you a postcard and brochure with the full schedule and details beforehand.

  • Save the date: Aug. 26–29, 2020

Transfer Students

Transfer students enjoy a one-day Orientation program that helps ease the transition to a new environment. Also, they learn about all of our resources and opportunities. It’s a chance to make connections with faculty and staff to discover what Elmhurst College is all about.

In addition to the College’s Orientation program, we invite you to participate in activities and programs for the rest of the week, such as a service project and a challenge adventure course!
