Bourbonnais isn’t a city, it’s a village. A village of about 20,000 people located in Kankakee County, Illinois, just south of Chicago. The village was founded in 1876 as Bourbonnais Grove and later changed its name to Bourbonnais, named after one of its first settlers Sr. Francois Bourbonnais. With a total area of roughly 9 square miles, the city is one of the smallest municipalities in the state of Illinois.
The city is home to just one four-year higher education institution, the Olivet Nazarene University (ONU)–a Christian liberal arts school. As its name suggests, the university is affiliated with the Church of the Nazarene and is a member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities. ONU is fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools to award undergraduate degrees. Currently, ONU offers over 70 bachelor’s degrees, as well as several master’s and doctoral degree programs.
