What is Jump Start?
Jump Start is a two day program designed for first-time, first-year students. Jump Start provides students the opportunity to interact with their peers and connect with current students, faculty, and staff to begin building relationships as they make the transition to life at Eureka College. The Jump Start staff, along with the entire campus community, is committed to making each student’s transition to college life as successful as possible.
During Jump Starts, students will:
- register for classes
- meet their peers
- network with current students
- learn about campus resources
- activate email account
- meet representatives from campus services & programs
- stay overnight in our residence halls
During Jump Start, family and guests will:
- receive additional information about the college and it resources
- gain insight into the adjustments students and families will face during the next few years
- become better acquainted with the campus and university personnel
First, be sure you have made your $300 enrollment deposit. Jump Start dates will not be held for any student until the Admissions Office has received the enrollment deposit. For your convenience, here’s our EC Letter of Intent Form
Second, select a Jump Start that works for you. Since this is such an important event for you to participate in, we’ve planned two overnights (with identical programs) for you to choose from:
Friday, June 13 – Saturday, June 14, 2014
Friday, July 18 – Saturday, July 19, 2014
Next, register on-line below. Eureka College will then contact you with more information.
It’s THAT easy!
