A private college in the heart of the Chicago metropolitan area, Elmhurst College is committed to helping students reach their potential—in college and in the world beyond.
Elmhurst is one of the top 10 colleges in the Midwest, according to U.S. News & World Report, and it also ranks among the best values in the region. With nearly 60 undergraduate majors and 15 pre-professional programs, Elmhurst boasts a student-to-faculty ratio of just 13 to 1. In small classes, professors get to know their students as individuals.
The College's gorgeous campus is a green oasis in the heart of a safe, quiet suburb-but it's also just a half-hour train ride from downtown Chicago, giving students unlimited access to world-class cultural and professional opportunities.
An Elmhurst education is about more than just courses and credits; it’s about defining your values, exploring the world, and preparing for a life of service, meaning, and achievement. More than 80 percent of Elmhurst students gain on-the-job experience through internships or service work, and 93 percent of our students find full-time employment or enter graduate school within a year of graduation.
