Check out this video to learn more about Judson University:

Judson University is a Christian college nestled along the Fox River in the city of Elgin, just 45 miles northwest of Chicago.

Grandmothers might call our riverside campus “quaint.” We began on a private estate with one white-pillared Georgian mansion and a carriage house. Today our campus is home to fifteen buildings, from historic to modern in style. We’re still “quaint,” but we’re state-of-the-art, too.

Judson is quickly gaining a reputation as an evangelical, “green” university. Our 88,000 square foot Harm A. Weber Academic Center, which is home to our library and School of Art, Design and Architecture, is a LEED Gold certified building and one of the most energy-efficient buildings of its kind in North America.

Judson University is home to over 1,250 students from 30 states and 20 countries. We offer more than 50 undergraduate majors, minors and pre-professional programs and are currently the only evangelical Christian college or university to offer a fully-accredited graduate program in architecture. Judson’s adult undergraduate offerings include: Management and Leadership, Human Services, Human Resources Management, Criminal Justice Management, Communications Management, Management and Leadership with Health Care Concentration. Graduate programs include the Master of Architecture, Master of Business Administration, Master of Organizational Leadership, Master of Leadership in Ministry, Master of Education in Literacy, and Doctor of Education in Literacy.

Judson University is an active “citizen” of the City of Elgin and is committed to serving the city’s needs through strong partnerships with businesses, schools and non-profit agencies. In 2013, Judson University celebrated its Golden Centennial Anniversary, commemorating fifty years since the college’s relocation to Elgin in 1963. The school also recognize its roots with the Northern Theological Seminary, which was founded in 1913 as well as the school’s affiliation with Adoniram Judson, the first American missionary abroad who traveled to Burma in 1813.

Judson is also home to the annual World Leaders Forum which has brought such world leaders as George W. Bush, Mikhail S. Gorbachev, Tony Blair, Condoleezza Rice and Felipe Calderon to Judson’s campus since the event began in 2011. The World Leaders Forum offers our students and area professionals the opportunity to be in the presence of and be inspired by World Leaders and serves as a catalyst to raise the capital necessary to begin an Entrepreneurial Studies Program at Judson University.

Chicago is 40 miles from Judson University. The Metrarail leaves Elgin to Chicago frequently. O’Hare Airport is 27 miles from Judson. We are very local!
