        I really enjoyed Elmhurst College! The campus is beautiful and close to home. I really appreciated the attention that I received from professors and staff as well as all the activities that were on campus. Although it is a small private college, it still has a university feel. I was a commuter student while I was at Elmhurst. I was also a new mom, and Elmhurst was the perfect school for me!!

        As a two time graduate from Elmhurst College, the first being in 2005 with a BA in Accounting and then again in 2007 with an MBA, I am confident in my decision to attend Elmhurst College. Their programs helped me develop a strong foundation that I use everyday in the course of business. Additionally, the professors had real life business experience that they brought to the classroom. The combination of theory and experience was a true benefit to my experience.

        I graduated from Elmhurst College receiving my BA in 08, and graduated from Benedictine University receiving my MA in 2010. Both are small, private schools that are great for the commuter student. However, I definitely prefer Elmhurst College over Benedictine. In my experience, Elmhurst offered a stronger curriculum, had more attentive professors, and provided better overall guidance and communication. If you are looking for a small campus where everybody knows your name, then Elmhurst college is a great choice.
