Elmhurst has a beautiful campus. It's a small school but it is also an arboretum! There is a huge variety of trees and other plants on the Elmhurst College campus. Also the way the campus is laid out is very logical and appreciated by the students. Another reason is the fact that it's a small school. Your professors will always know your name. You're never just a number at Elmhurst. Students will always have the opportunity to get to know their professors and get extra help for a specific class if necessary. The final reason is because of it's location. Just a block away is Downtown Elmhurst. Here there are many different restaurants and things to do, so students aren't always stuck on campus. Also, there is a train station right off of campus, so it is very easily accessible, and students can easily go to the city for a fun weekend or a day trip.

Everyone knows someone! There might be distinct social groups, but that does not stop anyone from socializing out of their "group". Secondly, there are many opportunities presented to the students from business related, to music, and the alumni of all are engaged in the lives of the students constantly presenting more opportunities.

  1. Small campus, small classes, so it is overall a very "intimate" place to go to school, which is wonderful.
  2. The professors. Elmhurst has some wonderful characters for professors, they are interesting people who teach things in such a way to make even the most boring topic relevant.
  3. The guests that come to the college for lectures, which students can attend for free. It's a great way to get a chance to meet influential people and hear new and challenging ideas.
