Eureka College is a family. A small family. Our historic campus located on 112 wooded acres in the heart of Central Illinois, can best be described as charming and friendly. Our focus on a comprehensive liberal arts education, with major emphasis on leadership and service to others, is one-of-a-kind. Our proximity to Peoria, Bloomington-Normal, Chicago, St. Louis, and Indianapolis make us ideal for those looking for major market facilities, yet like to return to a safe, secure, and small town environment. How Small Is Small? Eureka College has just under 770 students. Is this a disadvantage? On the contrary-we view it as an amazing advantage. David Everett's (1769-1813) line, "...large streams from little fountains flow, tall oaks from little acorns grow " rings true at Eureka. Each of those lucky enough to become a part of Eureka College and our traditions find themselves supported, encouraged, and treated, not as a number...but as the extraordinary and creative individuals they are.
