Do it from a client PC nearby. Use eventvwr, and connect to the server.
If you don't like this solution, consider adding all the GUI elements back into the server to make it a more "normal" server

You have 2 options.
Use the wevtutil.exe at the command prompt to get the logs.

Or you can start the eventvwr.msc on a remote computer that can connect to the core server.
Once in  the MMC you can connect to the core server 2012 to view the logs.
