EIU: '121 years and we're not going anywhere' - Marcus Jackson, Eastern Daily News

The midweek weather — cold and rainy — soaked some of the buzz usually tied to homecoming weekend. Yet by Saturday, the skies had cleared and the mood had lightened. Just like the good ol' days at Eastern Illinois University. "We've been here 121 years and we're not going anywhere," said Steve Rich, assistant vice president for advancement and a longtime director of the EIU Alumni Association. A decade ago, EIU's enrollment figures regularly topped 12,000. This fall, 7,415 students were enrolled for classes, a 13 percent drop from the previous year.
