Arts at Eureka College
The arts have played a pivotal role at Eureka College since it’s founding in 1855. Nearly 50% of the student body gets involved in the arts here in some significant way and there’s good reason for that—we’re winners! Our reputation is national and our students go on to professional careers in the arts and attend some of the finest graduate schools in the country. We stress overseas study and internships but our specialty is YOU. That’s right —YOU. YOU will always be a person—an artist—to us and we will become your friends and mentors for life. Learn more about our majors, minors– we want students who are intelligent AND talented. For quality, professionalism and a personal touch – this is the place.
