Orientation

New Student Orientation is a journey at Eureka College that begins with your commitment deposit, extends through the on campus orientation, Welcome Week (all EC students) and well beyond the student’s first semester. It helps facilitate the transition to Eureka College and prepares students for the educational opportunities and integration into Eureka College’s intellectual, cultural and social communities.

Many smart and talented first-generation students benefit from additional information and support as they begin to adjust to the college environment.
