I absolutely love Elmhurst College.Quite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
I absolutely love Elmhurst College. I cannot say enough good things about it and all the opportunities I have had over my time here at his college. From studying abroad to internships, Elmhurst has been there to support me the whole way. I feel very prepared to move on to graduate school, but will leave Elmhurst with fond memories and good feelings. This is a small campus, but it offers to much because of its close proximity to Chicago. If you like a small town feel, yet access to the big city, this is the college for you. I really can't say enough good things about this college and please come take a campus visit and see what it has to offer. With decent grades, you can receive excellent financial scholarships. I have received those, as well as scholarships for study abroad and scholarships for internships. Don't get "sticker shock" over the cost without applying and finding out what financial aid is available to you. Good luck and go Bluejays! :)

Coming in as a sophomore transfer student IQuite BrightCommunications
Coming in as a sophomore transfer student I was terrified that I would not meet people and form close relationships. My experience has been quite the opposite. I am involved in greek life and other organizations on campus which have enhanced my experience ten times over. The students that like to complain about Elmhurst are the ones that most likely have not taken advantage of the opportunities that are available to them. Elmhurst college has become my second home and I am very happy with my decision.
