Following the Eagles
As the RMU Women's Soccer team traveled down to Alabama for the NAIA Championship Tournament, don't think that they made the trip alone. RMU students back in Illinois followed the games via computer feed in the Student Center.
Tuesday's fabulous win over Vanguard University in the second round was a great accomplishment for the team. RMU was ranked 20th and claimed a 2-1 victory over sixth seeded Vanguard.
In Wednesday's game against Northwood University in the NAIA quarterfinal, however, a win was not in the cards. The Eagles lost 2 to 1 during a rainy game at the Orange Beach Sportsplex.
On behalf of the entire RMU community, great season, Eagles! Congratulations on getting RMU into the national tournament!

Students and athletes of different sports supported the RMU Women's soccer team.
It's the first week of winter quarter, and it's beginning to taste a lot like Christmas. Students at the Chicago campus enjoyed a buffet of holiday desserts as they managed a break in the Student Center in between classes. Nothing like some chocolate dipped strawberries or decorated gingerbread cookies to add some sparkle to a gloomy December day

Peoria Eagles Unite to Help Washington
It was a great day for the RMU-Peoria Eagles today! The hockey team was joined by members of the women's hockey team and bowlers in their second day of helping the volunteers of Washington IL Tornado Recovery sort and organize food and clothing donations. The hockey team also donated $300 worth of toiletries to the cause.
Coach Sanchez said "It was a great opportunity to give back to our community. Many friends of ours have been affected by the tornadoes in Central Illinois and we feel very fortunate to be able to help those in need." The Hockey team will be looking for more dates to volunteer their services. There is so much to do.
