Headed to the Met!

On Friday, April 6, I'll be at the Metropolitan Opera in New York to enjoy a performance from EIU alumnus Matthew Polenzani, who assumes the role of Alfredo in La Traviata. Matthew's international success is a great source of pride for EIU, but I believe it is also emblematic of the value of and Eastern education and our goal of enabling students to discover passions and succeed professionally.

At Eastern, we aim to combine a spirit of excellence with a commitment to personal relationships with our students -- a principal Eastern way we build our students' futures.

You can see Matthew in an earlier performance of the role at this website. Enjoy!
