Off and Running!

We are off to a great start to the new academic year with our students, faculty and staff helping new students move into their campus residences, leading small group discussions of this year's Eastern Reads book selection, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, and supporting our Aug. 18 event, Jumpstart 2 G.I.V.E., in which all our new students participated in community service projects around the region.

During the last year, EIU students have logged over 110,000 hours of community service, more than double the amount five years ago. The spirit of service thrives at EIU!
