#ECInferno – Student Section

One of the great things about Saturday afternoons in the fall is that it has a tremendous way of binding all of us together. Alumni, friends and current students have fond memories surrounding football games at McKinzie Field, and we want to make Saturday afternoons an even bigger event this year.

As our student-athletes write their stories of success both on and off the field, we want you to be important characters in these stories. It begins with #ECInferno, the student section. With your support the #ECInferno section will become the most electric atmosphere in the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference. Look for the #ECInferno Banner when you enter McKinzie Field.

#ECInferno will continue in support of our other amazing students with free giveaways and special events around other Eureka College events. We will be sure to keep you informed on all of those events as the approach.
