Maroon & Gold—Recapping February 2015
A Note From Home…
February: a Month of Celebrations
February is a big month of celebration for the Schwanke family. Our family of 4 celebrates two birthdays with Valentines Day nestled between them during this short month. Eureka College’s special celebrations also carry great significance for me as well, having been a member of the college community for so many years. Founders’ Day, Reagan’s Birthday and our oldest daughter Lauren’s birthday all fall on February 6th! Let’s just say, we do A LOT of celebrating. This year has been very special as the college marked a huge milestone of 160 years. What are your reasons to love Eureka College? We would love to know. Send us your list along with photos to add to our new photo collage in Cerf Center (see details below).

Dr. Logsdon’s Studs Terkel
Dr. Loren Logsdon, Professor Emeritus of English, has captured the spirit of Eureka College history in a special project he fondly calls the “Studs Terkel Project.” The project is a collection of alumni memories and stories which weave a rich tapestry of the Eureka College experience.
The Alumni Office would like to continue the spirit of this project by inviting alumni who attended after 1970 to send in your stories. You can also submit by emailing Dr. Logsdon directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This collection of stories is available in the Online EC Bookstore .
