First-Year Students

You’ll participate in a four-day Orientation program known as New Student Orientation: Are You Ready to Reach Your Full Potential? Through service projects, team-building exercises and more, you’ll examine your beliefs, build academic skills, and become a part of the Elmhurst College community. More information to follow. Be on the look out for a postcard and brochure with the full schedule and details.

Transfer Students

Transfer students will enjoy a one-day Orientation program that helps ease the transition to a new environment. Also, they will 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 additional activities and programs for the rest of the week, such as a service project and a visit to President VanAken’s house.

Weeks of Welcome

After Orientation officially ends, you’ll enjoy several weeks of activities designed to build community and get you involved. From the end of August through Fall Term, Weeks of Welcome offers video screenings, lectures, service projects, religious activities and much more.
