Judson University is a private evangelical university in Elgin, Illinois.
It was founded in 1913. Judson was formed out of the liberal arts component
of Northern Baptist Theological Seminary. When the seminary moved from
Chicago to Lombard, Illinois, it was decided to make the college separate
from the seminary. Originally known as Judson College, it was named after
Adoniram Judson, the first American Baptist missionary to foreign shores.
The university has campuses in Elgin and Rockford, Illinois, and a student
body of approximately 1,300. Judson College became Judson University on
August 28, 2007. Source:
