Eureka to the Fullest

At Eureka, you’ll find faculty who will push you to accomplish things that you might think impossible. They’ll hold you to high academic standards but they will be there to help and support you along the way.


Because we are a small, tight-knit community, faculty members will get to know you even if they haven’t had you for a class. And because our campus is intimate, we can offer leadership opportunities for each and every student.

Our Campus Online

Most of our student body are first-generation college students from Peoria and other small towns around Central Illinois. In the past decade, we've expanded our reach to welcome students from the Midwest and abroad; we believe that the moment of discovery is the most important thing we give to each of our students, and it starts by coming to see what campus is like during the school year.


Our on-campus experience is made up of a tight-knit community involved in every corner of the College, from performances and recitals to presentations and games. Start the journey to your moment of discovery here.
