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.

Our Campus. Online.
Most of our student body are first-generation college students from Peoria and other small towns around Central Illinois. In the past decade, we've expanded our reach to welcome students from the Midwest and abroad; we believe that the moment of discovery is the most important thing we give to each of our students, and it starts by coming to see what campus is like during the school year.
Our on-campus experience is made up of a tight-knit community involved in every corner of the College, from performances and recitals to presentations and games. Start the journey to your moment of discovery here.
Find your Team
Eureka College student-athletes balance their academic responsibilities and their commitment to the team. Our student-athletes are supported by coaches, faculty, and staff to ensure they excel on and off the field. As a competitive D3 school, we give young athletes valuable experience on and off the field.
Our fan base brings together the excitement of college sports along with faculty, students, and alumni in one place. Our #SwingTheAx mentality helped us become outright Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Football Champs this past year.
