About MacMurray College

MacMurray College is a four-year, multi-disciplined, private college that emphasizes creative problem-solving and making critical decisions to prepare its graduates for the workplace. Located in safe and charming Jacksonville, IL, MacMurray is among the least expensive private colleges in the state.

In a national survey of more than 600 colleges and universities, MacMurray seniors felt the campus environment was more supportive and faculty were more attentive to their needs than students at other institutions. At MacMurray College, you matter!

College was founded in 1846 by devout and erudite Methodist clergymen, as well as several of Jacksonville's prominent citizens, and continues to build strong relationships with both the Methodist Church and the city of Jacksonville to this day.
