How would you describe the Elmhurst College campus atmosphere for students?
Elmhurst University
Hi Saniya! I am actually a recent graduate from Elmhurst University and the best word I would use to describe it is "community". At Elmhurst University, whether you are a commuter or live on campus, you will easily find your place and people here. There are always so many events going on on campus that help you meet people, as well as so many clubs & organizations to get involved in. As a freshman, my first day on campus I instantly felt welcomed, safe, wanted, and a sense of community. It only continued to grow throughout the years!

Elmhurst made you feel included and you will always find someone to help you out with.

not a lot of diversity when I attended.

I love how quaint and inviting the Elmhurst University community is. Everyone is so beyond welcoming and there are always a lot of events to get students involved on campus. The Elmhurst University community strives to see their students succeed and they will undoubtedly assist any student to help them succeed.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I love Elmhurst University and there is not one thing I don't like about it.

Matthew Koren
Theology and Religious Studies



Elmhurst University, though a smaller campus, is full of very kind, loving, and passionate teachers and students. No matter who you are or what hobbies interest you, there is a home for you somewhere here on campus. Everyone here feels like family, and it is a great University to come to if you are looking to find somewhere you will easily fit in to.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Something to be aware of is that classes are very small here, and being on top of attendance and being on time for your classes is very important, and most of the time is a big part of your grade in many classes.



I am currently still at Elmhurst but I love how welcoming and supportive everyone is.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It's important to know that you have to learn how to take care of everything yourself but you'll still have help and be guided on how to do things.
