Our beautiful 65-acre campus is at the heart of Naperville, IL, which has been repeatedly recognized as the Best City to Raise a Family, the safest city in America, and one of the Best Places to Live in America.
Located 28 miles west of Chicago, Naperville offers easy access to O’Hare and Midway Airports and culturally and artistically diverse Chicago venues, with a train station just two blocks from campus.
Vibrant downtown Naperville is adjacent to campus and features a wide selection of restaurants and shops, the beautiful Riverwalk, family-oriented parks, and historic Naper Settlement.
Faculty can choose from a wide array of living options in Naperville, western suburbs of Chicago, and the greater Chicago area.
Faculty research is supported by connections with local and regional corporate, high tech, and internationally recognized scientific research facilities.
Our locale offers many internship and employment opportunities for students, as well as college programming and partnerships with Chicago organizations.
Local and regional networks include Chicago area universities (Northwestern University, Northern Illinois University, University of Chicago, University of Illinois at Chicago), the consortium of West Suburban colleges and universities, and the 88-member iShare library consortium.
Regional resources are enhanced by membership in three national networks: AAC&U; the CIC (Council of Independent Colleges); and NAC&U, a consortium of 21 private liberal arts comprehensive colleges.
