4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Class sizes are relatively small so professors often have plenty of time for office hours. Also, courses are exactly how they should be with a strong focus about the theme of the class. Coursework is often much more than any public university but is normal for private prestigious schools.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Career center makes it possible to get internships. Also, for CSD students the on campus clinic helps tremendously with clinical hours and observation!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is plenty of security and you always feel safe on campus. Not many problems occur ever and are always immediately handled.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everything is very clean. The buildings are close together so getting around campus is never a hassle.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Some teams are better than others. Basketball games are attended most frequently and extremely fun!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses are challenging which can be frustrating, but looking at the big picture it is a great learning experience. I enjoy my classes and professors are extremely helpful. One on one time is always possible because private colleges provide you with smaller class sizes!

Greek Life: Lots of people join greek life. If you dont, you are seen as an outcast.

Athletics: Sadly, not a lot of people go to athletic events. Athletes are not supported by student activities staff.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: Says they want diversity but puts students who want to make a dfference down. Not supportive. Student activites staff is not good and works to better themselves and the select students they randomly like.

Health & Safety: People at Elmhurst feel very safe because they leave their stuff all over the place. In the evenings, if you feel unsafe walking around campus, security can escort you wherever you need to go, although I don't really know anyone who ever used that service.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The buildings are pretty modern and the resident life advisers are amazing.

It’s common for students to wonder whether they made the right choice with their college, but this answer cannot be found within a week or two—it takes at least a semester to fully appreciate (or hate) their college. At Elmhurst, orientation can be rather tedious, but once classes start, the campus settles down and thrives. The classes are intriguing and taught by smart yet down-to-earth professors. And through your classes, you will learn about the 100+ different organizations on campus, which is huge considering there are only about 3,000 undergrads here. This makes it easy for students to get involved and begin gaining experiences for their potential careers.

Prestigious graduate programs respect Elmhurst and offer plenty of opportunities to its students. Even though the area has a large concentration of colleges and qualified people, Elmhurst students continually grab top-notch internships with some of the best organizations in the world. Elmhurst is close enough to the city of Chicago to enjoy the opportunities it provides, yet Elmhurst students aren’t directly affected by the city’s traffic, crime, and culture (depends on your viewpoint). Chicago is there if you want it, but it’s not in your face.

Overall, most students seem quite content with their choice of Elmhurst. The College is not perfect, but it provides a challenging curriculum, a nice community, and wonderful opportunities—all things that outweigh any cons. And Elmhurst’s proactive approach will likely continue to expand the unique experience it provides its students. Elmhurst College is a gem most prospective college students should keep on their radar.
