Welcome Week

Welcome Week is held prior to the start of classes each fall and complements the Experience Eureka: Orientation program students experienced in the spring or summer. Welcome Week is designed to connect new students to the campus and other students, assist them in learning the culture and values of Eureka College, and gain some on-site knowledge of the campus and its resources. It is also about having fun!

There are some academic sessions that are REQUIRED for all incoming students. Other events are optional but you will miss out on FUN!
