Student Life

Get Involved

Start a club, join a team, create lifelong connections—at Elmhurst, you’ll find a welcoming community and a world of opportunities so that you are primed to make an impact on the world.

A college experience should be more than what happens in the classroom. It’s also about meeting new people, stepping out of your comfort zone and exploring your passions so that you become respectful and culturally-aware professionals.

That’s why we offer so many ways to get involved in University life. It’s also why we provide the support you need to thrive.
