In 1871 Chicago businessman Thomas Bryan and his wife Jennie gave land in Elmhurst, Illinois to the German Evangelical Synod of the Northwest. This land was given for the purpose of establishing a school to prepare young men for the theological seminary and to train teachers for parochial schools. The Elmhurst Proseminary opened later that year. The first students--all male--studied Latin, Greek, English, German, music, history, geography, mathematics, science, and religion. All classes, including English, were taught in German.

In 1919, the Proseminary became the Elmhurst Academy and Junior College. It offered (in English) both pre-theological and classical education programs. The expanded curriculum included courses in public speaking, physical education, economics, psychology, and the history of education. In 1923, the Academy and Junior College assumed the name Elmhurst College, and became a four-year college for men, offering the Bachelor of Arts degree. Women first enrolled in 1930. In 1949, Elmhurst College offered its first Evening Session for adult students.

Campus Facilities

Accelerator Laboratory

The Accelerator Art space houses a 350,000-volt Cockcroft-Walton particle accelerator. Originally built by Dr. Sam Allison, professor of physics at University of Chicago. It was moved to Elmhurst in the mid-late 1960s and first beam was run in 1973. The accelerator was initially capable of accelerating voltages of 750KeV, but both newer solid state diodes and proximity to the building structure limits the voltage to 350 KeV. The accelerator now shares the building space with the new-age art gallery.

A. C. Buehler Library

Fresh from a $1.5 million upgrade, the A. C. Buehler Library aspires to be the model small-college library. Comfortable, welcoming, and ready to provide help on both academic and technical questions, the campus library and its staff provide an excellent bridge between the "printed page" library of the 20th century and the moder, technology-based information source. The A. C. Buehler Library is also home to the finest collection of Chicago Imagistart in the world.

Daniels Hall

Daniels Hall [formerly known as the Computer Science and Technology Center] , opened in 1988, is home to the College's open-access computer laboratories and much more. It houses the department of mathematics, computer science and information systems, foreign languages and literatures, and geography and environmental planning. The Instructional Media Center, located on the first floor, houses audio-visual material. Daniels Hall also contains several general purpose classrooms, the Gretsch Recording Studio, the weather station, and specialized laboratories. In 2008, it was named after Illinois Representative Lee Daniels.

The Frick Center

Built in 1961 and recently expanded and renovated (1999-2001), the Frick Center houses lounges, dining facilities, a game room, the mailroom, meeting rooms, and radio station WRSE (88.7mHz). The offices of the Student Government Association are housed here, as is the Union Board, the yearbook, and the college newspaper The Leader. Formerly known as the College Union, this building was renamed in 1994 to honor the College's eleventh president, Dr. Ivan E. Frick, and his wife, Ruth Hudson Frick.

Goebel Hall

Originally built in 1928 as the College's gymnasium, Goebel is named for the College's third president. It houses the Offices of Admission and Financial Aid, Registration and Records, Advising, Student Accounts, Academic Affairs, and the campus book store. Its more recent renovation and enlargement was completed in 1989.

Hammerschmidt Memorial Chapel

Completed in 1959 and renovated in 1993, the Chapel has a large auditorium for worship or assembly, a prayer chapel, classrooms, and English and Philosophy faculty offices. The auditorium seats roughly 1,000 people, and is used for events and performances of all types.

Irion Hall

Constructed in 1911 and named for the fourth president of the College, Irion was extensively renovated in 1978 to provide better facilities for the Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic and the Department of Music. The building's Buik Recital Hall is used for concerts, recitals, and lectures.

Kranz Forum

Located immediately east of the Frick Center, Kranz Forum is the site of a statue of Reinhold Niebuhr, a pre-eminent 20th-century theologian and 1910 graduate of Elmhurst College. The statue was sculpted by Robert Berks, whose works include the eight-foot bust of John F. Kennedy at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the statue of Justice Louis D. Brandeis at Brandeis University, and busts of U.S. presidents Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S Truman, and John F. Kennedy, which occupy prominent positions in the Oval Office of the White House.

Langhorst Athletic Field

Home to Elmhurst football, soccer and track and field (with its 400-meter rubber track), Langhorst is named in honor of the late Professor of Physical Education Oliver M. Langhorst, Class of 1930, to recognize his 36 years of faithful service to the College. The fully enclosed Langhorst Press Box overlooks the field.

Lehmann Hall

Named for the sevent Elmhurst College president, Lehmann was erected in 1951 and renovated in 1990. It houses the Office of the President, the Office of College Advancement, the Office of Financial Affairs, Human Resources, Campus Security, Administrative Computer Services, and Central Printing Services. Faculty offices for the Center for Business and Economics are also located in Lehmann Hall.

Memorial Hall

Memorial Hall houses the College's highly respected Deicke Center for Nursing Education. Formerly Memorial Library, this building was erected in 1921 to honor the 900 young men of the Evangelical Synod who lost their lives in World War I.

Mill Theater

The Mill Theater and Scene Shop operate in what was once a millwork factory and lumberyard. The buildings now contain a 200-seat, flexible-seating theater with state of the art lighting and sound. The theater lobby is newly renovated. The Mill Theater also contains costume and prop shops, and a classroom.

Old Main

Built in 1878, Old Main was completely renovated in 1978 and further updated in 1994. It contains classrooms, art and religion faculty offices, and modern art studios. Old Main is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

R. A. Faganel Hall, Physical Education

The physical education building opened in 1983 and was named R.A. Faganel Hall in 2000. The main level includes basketball/volleyball courts, handball/racquetball courts, a wrestling room, multipurpose room, training room, locker rooms, Hall of Fame, and trophy cases. Faculty offices for the Department of Kinesiology and the Athletic Office are on the second floor, together with a classroom and biomechanics testing laboratory. The adjacent Tom and Diane Tyrrell Fitness Center, built in 1999, houses state-of-the-art facilities for weight training, physical fitness, and athletic training.

Arthur J. Schaible Science Center

Constructed in 1966 and recently renovated, the Schaible Science Center houses the departments of biology, chemistry, history, physics, political science, psychology, sociology, and urban studies. In addition to lecture halls and laboratories for general instruction, there are specialized laboratories and equipment for faculty and student research. The Science Center also houses Illinois Hall, a 115 seat lecture space with enhanced acoustics and new technical and electronic capabilities, opened in 2001.

Circle Hall

The newest addition to the Elmhurst College campus. Circle Hall opened in the fall of 2004. It houses the Education department, Speech-Language Pathology department (including the Speech clinic) and the Center for Professional Excellence.

Residence Halls

Students who live on campus reside in five residence halls. Dinkmeyer Hall, built in 1956, is named for the eighth president of the College and also houses the Elmhurst College Drop-in Child Care Center. Niebuhr Hall, named for Helmut Richard Niebuhr (Class of 1912 and the sixth president of the College) and Reinhold Niebuhr (Class of 1910 and a famed theologian) also houses the Wellness Center, which includes student health services and counseling services, and the Niebuhr Center, an innovative academic program that encourages students to incorporate their beliefs into their chosen majors and careers. North Hall, opened in 1999, also houses the Brinkmeier Vista Lounge, the Office of Residence Life, and the School for Advanced Learning (for adult undergraduate and graduate programs) as well as conference and meeting facilities. Schick Hall, built in 1922 and expanded in 1967 and 1970, is named for Herman Schick, the fifth president of the College. Stanger Hall, built in 1968, is named for the ninth president of the College and his father, who was a professor.

Traditions and Symbols of the College

The College Seal

At the request of Dr. H. Richard Niebuhr, president of the College between 1924 & 1927, the College seal was designed by Robert Leonhardt, first registrar of the College, who also served as coach of the football team. It incorporates the image of an open book used by several institutions in their seals (Yale uses one, the University of Pennsylvania two, Harvard three and Brown four). Not surprisingly, since Dr. Niebuhr had earned his Ph.D. at Yale, Elmhurst's seal uses a single volume. The open book is clearly intended to symbolize the Bible and bears the legend from Psalm 36:9, "In Lumine Tuo Videbimus Lumen" (In Thy Light We Shall See Light). The torch behind the Bible symbolizes leadership in imparting knowledge, truth, and inspiration. Around the edges of the seal are the Latin words for Elmhurst College and the founding date, 1871.

The College Mace

Once a heavy club used on the medieval battlefield, the mace has become a symbol of authority. Carried in a formal procession, it represents the presence at the ceremony of the essence of the institution. At Elmhurst College, the mace is borne by the College Marshal at all official convocations. The College's mace was created by Mike Hattori of Chicago in 1991 at the request of Dr. Ivan E. Frick, president of the College from 1971-1994. It is designed to rest vertically in a stand symbolizing the emergence of Elmhurst from its roots in the educational traditions of the Renaissance and Reformation. The founding date of 1871 is engraved on the wooden spiraling shaft. The top of the mace displays the College seal, the seal of the United Church of Christ, the towers of Old Main and Hammerschmidt Memorial Chapel, and a crown of elm leaves.

The College Hash Bell

The large handbell rung at Elmhurst College ceremonies is a reminder of the long history of the College. This is the bell that kept the school on schedule in its early years, and generations of alumni have recalled fondly the loud clanging that woke students in the morning, assembled them for classes and activities, and then called them from their chores to dinner in the evening. One of the earliest Elmhurst catalogs declares: "Life in the institution is regulated entirely by the stroke of the bell." Why it came to be called "the Hash Bell" remains a mystery, although it certainly divided up the day as "hash marks" do a football field, and hash may well have been on the dinner menu all too frequently. In any case, the Hash Bell is now a cherished symbol of our community and of the discipline and mutual responsibility to which we are called.

The Victory Bell

This is a large bell located in the corner of Langhorst Field, which is rung by every member of the team, after every victory the Elmhurst College football team brings to the school.

The Presidential Medallion

The Presidential Medallion is an emblem symbolic of the Presidency of Elmhurst College. A replica of the Elmhurst College seal, it is worn by the College President at all ceremonial occasions. The medallion, which is suspended from a gold chain, is three inches in diameter. The circumscription, "COLLEGIUM ELMHURSTIENSE, MDCCCLXXI", frames the center of an open Bible superimposed on a lighted torch.

The Haunted Mill Theater

The Mill Theatre was acquired by Elmhurst College in the early 1960s. Before becoming the primary theatrical space for the college it functioned as a paper mill, operated by the Hammerschmidt family. During its tenure as a paper mill, there were numerous deaths that occurred on the property due to the hazardous nature of the facility. To this day there are strange accounts of voices and odd aparitions within the Mill Theatre.
