Under the header, EARLY WARNING, the EIU Journalism Department has given notice that the next Homecoming North will be on Saturday, February 8, 2014.  More details to follow.

Apparently, there has been a change. EIU North is now Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. at the Newport Bar & Grill, according to Ryan's facebook page.


In the weekend before Homecoming 2013, former Editor in Chief Tom Keefe stopped by campus. Tom met up with former Eastern News staffers Brian Nielsen and Herb Meeker to watch EIU's very own, Tony Romo, play football for the Cowboys.

FYI, a new edition of -30- has been sent to alumni.  It contains more information on the Endowment Fund drive and plans for the Daily Eastern's News' 100th Anniversary. A birthday bash is tentatively set for November 7, 2015.
