International Student Host Families
We currently have 5 international students on campus who live too far away to make it home over the Thanksgiving and Winter Breaks. Although our International Students have the option of staying on campus over the breaks, meal services are not provided.
As a Host Family you will have the opportunity to make these students feel like part of your family. It is an ideal way to make a true impact on an international student’s Eureka experience and to gain a deeper understanding of another culture.
Expectations of Host Families will be determined based on the needs and interests of individual students, but could include the following:
- Invite the student to your home for a meal or prepare a meal together
- Include the student in what you normally do to celebrate the holidays/special occasions
- Bring meals to campus & visit
- Overnight stays
Please contact Sarah Jiter if you are interested in serving as a Host Family.

Retention Alert Form
The Retention & Persistence Committee invites you to begin using this Retention Alert Form to communicate your retention concerns about students.
Only a user logged into our domain (eureka.edu) can submit an alert via this form. Once the form is submitted, the user receives a verification email back, including a summary of their responses.
The responses are automatically logged into a Google Doc spreadsheet, which only the members of the Retention & Persistence Committee can access. In addition to the responses, the spreadsheet also logs the timestamp of the submission, and the domain username (email address) of the person submitting the form. Members of the committee get an email alert the moment a new submission is made.
We want your feedback about this new method for reporting your retention concerns about students. Email or call Scott Wignall (x6302) with any questions or ideas about this system.
Transportation Services & Schedule
To help with transportation during breaks, the College will be offering shuttles to take students to and from the Amtrak Train Station in Normal, IL. If you are available to drive a shuttle please contact Becky Duffield in the Student Programs and Services Office. (Depending on requests a college vehicle may be used in place of a shuttle.)
