Judson University


About Judson University

Nestled along the Fox River in the city of Elgin, just 45 miles northwest of Chicago, Judson University is an evangelical Christian university that represents the Church at work in higher education, equipping students to be fully developed, responsible persons who glorify God by the quality of their personal relationships, their work, and their citizenship within the community, the nation and the world.

Through a broadly-based education in the liberal arts, sciences and professions, the university enables its students to acquire ideas and concepts that sharpen their insights, develop skills appropriate to their career goals, and develop the skills and commitment for lifelong learning. The Judson community experience challenges graduates to be decisive leaders and active participants in church and society, articulate proponents of Biblical Christianity, persuasive advocates for the sovereignty of God over all life, and effective ambassadors for Christ.

Possibly over two-thirds of Christian young people will step away from the Christian faith while attending a non-Christian college or university.

A study published by Gary Tobin of the Institute for Jewish and Community Research showed that in a sample of 1,200 college and university faculty, 53 percent held unfavorable feelings toward evangelical Christians while at the same time holding favorable opinions of most other religious groups.

Roughly 70 percent of Christian teens who head off to college end up walking away from their faith in the first year, according to Campus Renewal.

The Fish has partnered with Judson University, a private Christian College, in offering a limited number of special grants designed to decrease the cost of tuition by over half.  These tuition grants are available now.
