To My Fellow Students -
Hello! My name is Lauren Schwanke and it is my privilege to serve you as the Student Body President for the 2012/2013 academic school year.
Eureka College has truly been influential in shaping the person I am today. You see, I have spent my entire life in the humble town of Eureka and would come to the college quite often, because both of my parents attended here. As a Junior this year, I can honestly say these past two years living in this town have been by far the most exhilarating, social and maturing years of my life; I owe it all to Eureka College. Among the academic buildings, residential halls and student organizations on campus, I have made exceptional mentors, life-long friendships and had experiences which cannot be compared. Attending Eureka College has proven to be THE best decision in my life and it is my hope that you too will feel the same way.
The four short years we have at Eureka come and go in the blink of an eye, and while we are here it is crucial to find things that bring you joy. My faith, my friends, my family, and yes… even some of my courses, bring me joy. I hope you find the things that bring you joy here. If you truly invest yourself in this place, it will enrich your life until the day you die. So Eureka will be what you make of it. If you invest yourself in your classes, in the friendships and in the opportunities, you will come away a rich person. Rich in knowledge, rich in relationships and hopefully rich in your future career.
As Student Body President I can promise to invest in your Student Senate. The mission of Student Senate is better our community to help promote academic success while keeping at the forefront of all decisions what is best for our student body. We meet weekly in the North Terrill Room on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. All meetings are open to the public and we look forward to your attendance to voice your opinion. If you ever have any questions or concerns regarding Eureka College, please do not hesitate to contact either myself or any member of Student Senate.
