Please Nominate “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges”

Eureka College is once again participating in the “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges” program that honors college junior and seniors who have excelled academically and who have served as outstanding servant leaders. This e-mail is to ask for nominations from faculty and staff of students who meet these criteria.

Each faculty and staff member of Eureka College may nominate up to ten (10) students they feel are worthy of consideration for this recognition. The nominations should be sent via email to Becky Duffield by 5:00 pm on October 17.

Once nominated, students are asked to submit additional documentation that is utilized in the review process. Faculty and staff leadership are involved in making the final recommendations to assist us in the selection process. Students selected are notified of their recognition early in the spring semester and will also be honored at the annual Honors Ceremony in April.

There is no cost to us as an educational institution or for the students who are selected to participate in this recognition program.

Any questions may be addressed to Shari Rich or at 467-6421.

Thank you in advance for your participation in this process!

Faculty/Staff First-Year Seminar panel discussion

On Wednesday, November 12, from 12–12:50, Jessica Barr be leading a panel discussion for First-Year Seminar students entitled, “Is Studying Abroad for Me?” The purpose of the panel is for faculty and staff who spent some time abroad while they were in college to discuss their experiences—and, most importantly, how these experiences affected their personal and professional lives.

This panel is seen as a complement to the Summer Experience Symposium, which is an opportunity for students to share their recent experiences. The faculty/staff panel will show students how these undergraduate experiences can have a powerful impact on them even decades later.

If you would be interested in serving on this panel, please contact Jessica Barr.
