Quick Studies is Elmhurst College’s online journal and podcast series on campus life, updated weekly when school is in session. It is written and hosted by Andrew Santella, a freelance journalist who has covered the campus for more than 10 years—writing for Prospect magazine and the College’s web site. He has also written for The New York Times Book Review, GQ, Slate, Chicago, Commonweal and other publications. His work has won awards from the Chicago Headline Club and the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, and his work has been recognized by the editors of the Best American Essays series.

Quick Studies is about everything that makes our campus a lively, fun and intellectually stimulating place. You’ll join thought-provoking classes, talk with faculty about their research and find out where students are studying abroad and landing internships. And you’ll meet newsmakers and opinion leaders who come to campus for lectures and events. Send your feedback and ideas to ecquickstudies@gmail.com.
