The Eureka College class of 2020 is made up of an incredible group of people. Unfortunately, the magic of their senior year has been stolen by Covid-19. In an effort to celebrate and welcome this special group to alumni status, we recently invited graduates to share their favorite college memories and plans for their future. Their responses can be found HERE.



We will continue to share their responses throughout the summer months as we continue to receive them. If you are a graduate of 2020 and would like to be included, please email and a brief questionnaire will be sent to you.
