Eureka Parents

Welcome Eureka College Parents!

You and your student are invited to join us for Parent’s Day on Saturday, September 13, 2014. You are an important part of the Eureka College community and we sincerely hope that you will participate in the activities that will be taking place during your day on campus.

The day will start with a session designated for our parents of first-year, First-Generation students. You will also have opportunity to talk with the Coordinators and Peer Mentors of the First-Generation Program, college administration, our distinguished faculty and staff, and lunch in our Dickinson Commons dining facility.

The afternoon will kick off with our first home Red Devil football game vs. Northwestern Minnesota, guaranteed to get you into the “Eureka Spirit”. Our fans are participating in a “White Out” and the goal is to pack the crowd with everyone wearing white to show support for the Red Devils in their new white uniforms. The Eureka College Bookstore will be open from 9 am–1:30 pm for you to purchase your official Eureka College gear.

You are encouraged to take advantage of these wonderful opportunities to get to know the Eureka campus community. Please RSVP via phone (309-467-6436) or email by Friday, September 5, 2014 to confirm your attendance.

As your student moves through his/her college career eventually to the ranks of alumni, we want you to know what students and alumni are doing for their alma mater. A great way to be connected is by receiving the alumni e-newsletter, Maroon & Gold. If you would like to receive the Maroon & Gold, please include your email address when you RSVP.
