Requesting Your Outstanding Student Nominations
Each year it is the privilege of the Office of Student Programs and Services to coordinate the selection of outstanding students at Eureka College in the following categories:
Freshman of the Year
Sophomore of the Year
Junior of the Year
Senior of the Year
Man of the Year
Woman of the Year
Attached you will find a nomination form to be completed and returned to the SPS Office by Wednesday, March 11, 2015. Please feel free to copy the nomination form as many times as you wish in order to nominate more than one student. You may also submit your nominations via email by replying to Becky Duffield
Upon receipt of your nominations, the SPS Office will then notify students to request additional information for the review and selection process. For your convenience, a list of students is attached. Nominations should be based on the following criteria:
A strong record of academic achievement
Leadership and involvement in campus activities
A commitment to the campus community and a display of the commitment through one’s academic and social activities (i.e., community service).
Your assistance in identifying some of the best students at Eureka College is greatly appreciated. The awards will be presented at the Spring Honors Ceremony on Sunday, April 26, 2015.
Should you have any questions regarding this process, please feel free to contact Shari Rich, 467-6421.

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.
