EC Connection: August 21-24, 2021

    Apply now for this special opportunity! EC Connection (Elmhurst Continued Connection) is a pre-orientation program designed to support incoming first year and transfer students with their transition to Elmhurst University. Specifically, this program will enhance intercultural awareness and appreciation among its participants by providing resources to successfully navigate the Elmhurst community, both inside and outside of the classroom. The program begins with the pre-orientation program and continues with mentorship, support, and resources from the Office of Diversity and Inclusion throughout the fall semester.

    Although EC Connection is open to all undergraduate students, we highly encourage historically underrepresented populations to apply. This includes, but is not limited to; students of color, students who identify as LGBTQIA+, first-generation college students, differently abled students, and international students. 

    Students who participate in EC Connection will:

    ·         Learn about academic and co-curricular resources at the University.

    ·         Build a community among other incoming students.

    ·         Engage in intercultural dialogue and identity exploration.

    This pre-orientation is FREE and by applying to be a participant in the program, you agree to attend all scheduled programs, socials, and events. Due to Covid 19 uncertainties, space is extremely limited. In addition, pending regulations, we may have to offer an alternative schedule. We will contact you immediately if plans change. For more information, contact Jasmin Robinson, Director of Diversity and Inclusion Programs, at

    EC Connection is August 21–24, 2021. It is free to all students who register and commit to fully participating. As an added bonus, students with on campus housing will be able to move into their assigned residence hall room early and be able to stay for Orientation, which is August 25–28, 2021.
