2015-16 FYE Common Reading Announcement
The Selection Committee is pleased to announce the 2015-16 Common Reading for the First Year Experience Program is “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” by Mark Haddon.
The Summer Common Reading Program at Eureka College is based upon the assumption that faculty, staff, and students are all part of the teaching/learning mission of Eureka College. Through this reading program, the entire Eureka College community will have the opportunity to become engaged in a common intellectual experience through campus‐wide discussions and year‐long programming. This unique program will provide students with his/her first common intellectual experience at Eureka College, an introduction to Eureka College’s academic life, and a sense of unity and common purpose among the students’ peers, professional staff and the faculty.

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.
