President’s Welcome

Eureka College will transform you in ways you may not think possible.

Here at Eureka, we pride ourselves at helping each student discover his or her own vision and voice and reach their full potential.

We are #UniquelyEureka. The opportunities you will find here are endless, and you won’t find them anywhere else. You will be challenged and supported as you hold the world in your hands. If you dream it, you can achieve it at Eureka College. Our academic setting is different from anything you’ve experienced, you’ll learn to be a problem solver and a critical thinker.

Your EC experience will transform you from day one. We are an exclusive liberal arts college located in central Illinois on a beautiful historic campus.

Eureka College was founded by friends of Abraham Lincoln, and was the first college in the state and third in the nation to admit men and women on an equal basis. Eureka College continues to make history today. We have graduated thousands of leaders, including 42 college presidents, seven governors and members of Congress and the 40th President of the United States.

Here at EC we have a focus on learning, service and leadership and when our students leave, they leave as servant leaders, who go in to the world and do great things.

Your opportunity to change the world starts here. After four years at Eureka College you will be more than prepared for your next step.
