Welcome to Elmhurst College!

This is your time. Maybe you have a plan for the future, maybe just a hunch. But you know you can do more, be more, give something back. Now you need to engage new ideas and acquire new skills in a place where you can test them, with friends to support you and mentors to guide you. This is the place.

This is the place where minds are opened, characters are shaped and friendships are formed. This is the place that invites you each day to question, connect, discover, confront, marvel and explore—in a word, to experience—to engage life and learning in a purposeful way, and thus to change and grow.

The Elmhurst Experience will enable you to change, grow, think, act and encounter the world in a whole new way. It will expand your horizons—intellectually, professionally, creatively, morally and spiritually. It will challenge you to develop your talents and make a difference.

Take a tour of our beautiful campus. Watch a short video on what we offer. Better yet, contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
