My opinion is that Elmhurst needs to do a better job of making students' safety a priority. Bad things happening inside those dorms and houses need to be better supervised. Authority on campus is not likely to listen to your qualms or take you seriously if you're not an athlete.
Elmhurst College is a great university that has been providing a great learning experience for students in both undergraduate and graduate level since 1871. The atmosphere of the campus is very welcoming that professors and students are friendly to approach either to ask questions about a location of hall as a new student who seems to be lost, or to find out where an office is located at. The location of the university is about 15-20 miles away from my home, which makes it convenient for me to commute in any weather. I like the size of the university as well, its not too small or too big, just perfect like the way I like it. I wouldn't pick any university apart from Elmhurst College. Highly recommended to prospective or future students
If you want to go to a school with a great small environment Elmhurst is perfect for you. Everyone is super friendly so it is easy to make friends and if you live on campus you are guarantee to see at least 3 people you know when you leave your dorm room. The professors are very flexible and willing to work with you.The aesthetic of the school is great as well, there are also many dogs walking around campus and the squirrels are very friendly. And if you ever get tired of the cafeteria food downtown Elmhurst is only a ten minute walk away with so many food options as well as activities.

I can just imagine the high school senior version of me, merely one year ago. Stressing over applications, scrambling for teacher recommendations, and trying to squeeze in as much fun as possible before I bid adieu to the school I was tired of. I had this weird notion that somehow, once high school ended, life was going to get harder, more intense, and I'd be on anti-depressants within the first year if I wasn't careful enough. What a gross misconception! Freeze frame like they do in movies, and one would find me spending countless hours in my Advanced Physics class, devoting many hours to understanding the material. College Me would approach High School Me, look her in the eyes and tell her that college and high school are NOT dangerously different from one another. In fact, they are quite similar. You are making moves to secure a future, meeting new people, embarking on new experiences, and finding yourself as a person. There is really nothing to fear about college. Everything usually falls in its right place, to quote Radiohead. I'd then leave the classroom, happy to have shed some knowledge to myself.
No one stays around on the weekends.
In my opinion, the worst thing about Elmhurst College is that, being in a residential area, it is mostly a commuter school. Although I live on campus, many of the students go home after class which leaves campus rather empty and almost ghost like. On weekends campus is usually quite empty as well.
If you are looking for a big "party" school with large class sizes where you can hide in the back unnoticed, then Elmhurst College is not right for you.
My classmates are down-to-earth, intriguing people who each offer something different to this world.
The greatest feature of Elmhurst College is its faculty. Both highly educated and respected, the professors who work at the college are engaging in class and compassionate towards their students. They are always responsive when questions are asked, and strive to help students reach their full potential.
The environment at Elmhurst College is very chill. Its located in a prime spot too! In between classes there is plenty to do around the school. The class size is supposed to bre pretty small too which means if you need extra attention from a teacher its easier to get than having to deal with a additional 50-60 students per class.
It is best known for having good business, nursing and music departments. We also have a good men's soccer team.
Elmhurst College has a beautiful campus, friendly students, helpful staff, and most importantly class sizes that are small enough to get attention but large enough where you aren't the only one in class.
Smaller, professors easy to understand
