Charleston, IL – Eastern Illinois University’s Marketing & Communications web team is excited to share that the EIU Events Calendar can now feature non-EIU events. The aim of including these events is to strengthen the bond between the EIU campus and the surrounding community, providing everyone at EIU the chance to engage in local happenings.

Community businesses and organizations holding events that could appeal to the EIU community are welcome to submit their event through this form: EIU will evaluate the details and if suitable feature them on the calendar. This way, broader community events also can be promoted to EIU students, faculty, staff, and annuitants.

EIU prepares students to accomplish their life goals through a combination of quality academics, personal relationships, and both on-campus and online learning opportunities. For more information about Eastern Illinois University, including its broad array of academic and career readiness programs, or any of EIU’s other community-based services and opportunities, visit or call EIU’s public information office at (217) 581-7400.
