Eureka College is a liberal arts college in Eureka, Illinois related by covenant to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and founded in 1855. It has a strong focus on history, political science, and the fine and performing arts. Enrollment is about 680 students. The college was founded by a group of abolitionists who had left Kentucky because of their opposition to slavery. When the school opened its doors it became the first school in Illinois (and only the third in the United States) to educate women on an equal basis with men. Athletics, though having struggled for some years, are beginning to pick up speed again. There are teams for men's and women's soccer, basketball, tennis, swimming, golf and track, as well as football, volleyball, baseball and softball. Starting in fall 2006, teams will compete in the NCAA's Division III as part of the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Eureka College was a member of the Illinois Intercollegiate Athletic Conference from 1910-1942. There is a very active Greek life on campus, as well, with three social fraternities, all national, and three social sororities, one national and two local. There are also professional and honorary fraternities for Music, Drama, English, Science, and Social Sciences. Over half of Eureka's students belong to a Greek organization. The school's main library, Melick Library, was named in honor of Wesley M. Melick and Clinton F. Melick. The building was dedicated on September 28, 1967 by California Governor and Eureka College alumnus Ronald Reagan. The school's most famous alumnus is President Ronald Reagan, who graduated in 1932.
