On December 6, 1871, Rev. Carl F. Kranz stepped off a train with 14 students in Elmhurst, Illinois to establish the institution that would become Elmhurst University. Help us celebrate the pioneering spirit of that first day in our 150-year history, our Founders Day, by gathering with fellow Bluejays in the St. Louis area for a watch party event!

Refreshments will be served, and good times will be had by all! Special thanks to Trustee Rev. Dr. Mary Schaller Blaufuss for hosting this event.
