Eureka College is unique for me compared to my high school and college experience. The small family-like setting is unlike any other institution I know. Our students are always so welcoming and eager to meet the new students each year.  It is incredible to see a new "family" form each year as students come and go.  Staff and faculty know most students by name and serve students in a capacity that just isn’t possible at a larger school.



Lisa is originally from Springfield, IL but currently resides in Eureka. Lisa is married to Matthew Allen.  They have a son (Bradley) and dog (Sadie).  They enjoy attending sporting events and making memories as a family.
