EIU recruits and educates some amazing students. This month's story is about Edwyn Mitchell. Edwyn came to EIU as a freshman from Homewood Flossmoor High School in Fall 2015, and ever since stepping on campus Edwyn has been excelling in his studies and in his extracurricular pursuits. He has had a positive and meaningful impact on all those around him, and his passion for EIU shows every day.
While at EIU, Edwyn has become a multi-award winning public speaker with two consecutive first-place U.S. National Championship titles in Persuasive Speaking. He also has applied his incredible talents to being an advocate for Eastern, where he has done an incredible job as a tour guide, and as a presentation speaker at many of the university's prospective student events. When he speaks, EIU audiences are listening.
EIU strategically recruits students who are the right fit for our institution. And like Edwyn, they often grow so passionate about their EIU experience they become enthusiastic EIU advocates who greatly desire to share their experiences with prospective students.
