    Eureka administration will fight tooth and nail in order to get students to stay in their dorms and will put a hefty fine to those who attempt to stay off campus

    It is cheaper than most private colleges and they offer several scholarships that are more than $500- $1000.

    Being a liberal arts private college Eureka is more expensive then most colleges. Financial Aid is offered. I believe that Eureka is well worth the money that it costs to attend.

    Bang for the Buck: The onsite campus cafeteria is yummy & excellent. They always have 2 warm meal options, including vegan options, and 4 cold meal options available for EVERY meal time. (Most students underestimate the importance of a good school cafeteria before choosing which school to attend.) You are paying for the actual professors to who -Love- to teach & never get a teaching assistant. All of my professors know me by my 1st name & notice if I attend class or not. Other students take an active interest in helping you succeed too. The campus is tree-lined & compact, so no car is needed to get between classes. I like the architecture of several of the classroom buildings. Downside: Some of the oldest buildings are not handicapped-accessible (and 1 has no running water because it was built when Abe Lincoln was alive & its now on the national register of historic buildings). The on-campus housing is hit & miss. Some dorms are amazing & others are run-down, but new ones are under construction this semester & the old ones are about to be renovated, so hopefully all housing will be good quality soon. The tuition is a little pricier than most, but you definitely get more personal attention than a state-run university which translates into more of your homework making sense to you more of the time.
