School is officially back in session. One of many benefits to living in Elmhurst Real Estate is having one of the top Midwest colleges right in our backyard. Elmhurst College is a private liberal arts college.  According to U.S. News and World Report's "America's Best Colleges," Elmhurst ranks among the top colleges in the Midwest. Just because you aren't buying a new Miley Cyrus backpack and stocking up on school supplies for yourself, doesn't mean that you can't go back to school right along with the kids.

Elmhurst College offers some amazing classes and programs, whether you are looking to be a full time student again, or you just want to learn something new. The following are a mixture of interesting courses available to full time students and classes and programs ideal for working adults.

Computer Simulation and Animation Course
Learn to master the animation techniques that are the building blocks to the fast-growing computer gaming industry. Computer simulations can cover everything from gaming, to weather forecasting, to military training. This course is part of a major in computer game and entertainment technology, a new program launched two years ago at Elmhurst.

Social Responsibility
This is not your typical freshman composition course. Although it teaches the expected lessons of clear writing and critical thinking, it also encourages students to consider their obligations as responsible citizens. This class is for first year students in the Honors Program.

Fast Track Academic Programs
As most of us no longer have time to take off four years (or more) to go to school, Elmhust offers accelerated majors that help you earn all of the requirements for your major in as little as a year. Take your pick from Business Administration, Information Technology, Managerial Communication, and Psychology.

Bachelor of Liberal Studies Program
This program actually allows you to create a program around the professional life you have already established. Instead of choosing a major, you can choose two concentrations from 25 fields of study.

Credit for Non-Collegiate Instruction
You may already be eligible for college credit that you didn't even know about! Course work completed through associations, corporations, unions, government agencies and military services can get you a step ahead and earn you credit.

Elmhurst as a community values education and achievement more than your average community. It is part of the town's culture. You can always further your education. There really is no limit on it. It's just nice to live in a place that makes it so easy to do that. If you are interested in Elmhurst Real Estate, we would love to introduce you to our town.
