What Students Are Saying

3.68 Average Rating
Try to get involved as much as possible even if you commute so you can enjoy your college experience.
Take advantage of getting to choose your own schedule don't overwhelm yourself with too many classes. Also, Try taking four classes per semester and one during January or take the whole January month off.
Liliana from Glendale Heights, IL
Join clubs and participate in campus activities. You'll really see the benefits there are to being a part of a smaller school.
Paige from Chicago, IL
When applying and writing your essay always write from the heart that's what gets you noticed.
ASHLEY from Northlake, IL
If you already know what major you want to get into, I would really look into the program that the college has for you. Don't be afraid to ask questions and wonder how their program will benefit you. Or if you are undecided, there is more than enough help from faculty and many facilities on campus to help you through your decision. Elmhurst College is big on having a liberal-arts education, so you will get to experience every subject.
Kellie from Chicago, IL
Go visit! Apply and see what happens!
Angelina from Lombard, IL
Get involved from the second you step on campus. There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer or join a club.
Sarah from Western Springs, IL
Elmhurst offers great scholarships - so get your applications in early! It's also important to get involved in clubs and activities since many of the students are commuters.
Marley from Signal Mountain, TN
Get into your major early, especially for education and nursing.
