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.
