* Thanks to All Who Participated in Effort to Get Today Show to Campus

Thank you to all who participated in last week’s effort to get NBC’s Today Show to come to campus. Even though we were not one of the finalists chosen, we did get national attention thanks to the creativity and UE spirit. We are aware of at least four mentions on the show, including playing one of the videos and positive comments by the co-hosts. This is the link in case you missed it: http://bit.ly/PPrJ2o

Thanks again and even though the contest is over, keep telling the world what great opportunities await students at UE.

* Preview and Comment Period for the New UE Website

The new University of Evansville website is up and running!

On Monday, September 24, the new UE site will go live to the public. However, until then, the Office of Digital Media is asking the campus community to preview the site, and to let us know if you see any issues. Specifically, we are looking for comments regarding:

  • Inaccurate or outdated information
  • Things that are difficult to find
  • Grammatical and typographical errors

During the preview and comment period, we will be doing two things. First, we will be taking your comments and making any needed changes to round out the rough edges that you find in the site. Second, we will be taking more photos around campus, and adding additional photography to the website. So if you look through a section and think, "Wow, that could really use more photos!" ... we're working on that!

So please, take a moment to look over the site at wwwdev.evansville.edu, and if you have comments, please send them to Director of Digital Media Joe Atkinson at ja122@evansville.edu. Thank you!

"Ever since I can remember, I’ve always wanted to and liked to help people in any way possible. However,  after becoming a victim of Hurricane Katrina, my family and I were “flooded” and overwhelmed by the kind hearts and generosity of people we had never met or would possibly ever meet again. Accepting things, even though we needed them, was so hard to do because we always liked to be on the giving end. After this very humbling and touching experience and knowing that we would never be able to give back to the people that gave to us made me want to help others in a bigger way. I found that opportunity when I became an employee of UE, which is a supporter of the United Way campaign. By being a volunteer with the United Way campaign, I can give back in a much greater capacity to others who are in need."
Rosanne Thomas, Administrative Assistant for Research and Advancement Services

Since 2000, Heaton has had a strong connection with the country of Guatemala and has worked to make a difference in the lives of the Guatemalan people. For several years, he helped the working poor of Guatemala through the sales of fair trade crafts through a nonprofit he formed called Mayan Traditions.  Profits from the sales of the crafts were returned to Guatemala to help orphanages and children’s related ministries.  In the fall of 2008, Bishop Michael Coyner appointed Tom to do work with the poor of Guatemala.

In the spring of 2009, Heaton formed Mission Guatemala, a United Methodist related ministry that operates a clinic and a preschool feeding program in San Andrés Semetabaj, Guatemala.  Mission Guatemala is currently trying to discern new projects it can start in the San Andrés area to help improve the quality of life for the indigenous people of Guatemala.  Guatemala is one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere ranking fourth in the world for child malnutrition.

Prior to being called into ordained ministry, Heaton served as an advertising officer for a local bank.  He received his Masters of Divinity degree from Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis.

* Diana Rodríguez Quevedo

Assistant Professor of Spanish Diana Rodríguez Quevedo was recently interviewed by Micah Schweizer for the WNIN Radio program, The Trend. The subject was her recent Andiron Lecture on campus titled, “Skipping Beats:  The Impact of the Illegal Drug Trade on Colombian Music.” In her lecture, Rodríguez Quevedo discussed how Colombia’s music has undergone transformations due to the influence of the illegal drug trade over the past four decades. Cumbia, once known as the emblematic rhythm of the nation, was replaced by vallenato, which itself faced competition from the production and commercialization of narcocorridos or prohibited corridos. The radio interview focused on narcocorridos but also tied in the connection between music (vallenato) and the phenomenon of forced internal displacement in Colombia.  The program can be accessed online here.

* Volleyball Earns Road Sweep at SIUE

Freshman Stephanie Cerino tallied a career-high 11 kills as the University of Evansville volleyball team earned a 3-0 sweep at SIU Edwardsville on Tuesday evening.With its first road sweep since Bradley last year, the Aces improve their mark to 5-9 entering their first Valley road trip this weekend.  The Cougars fall to 4-7 with the defeat. 

Cerino’s effort was also a precise one as she hit .429 on the night while recording just two errors.  Ashley Ring and Lauren Seyller each tallied nine kills while Katie Klages had a match high in digs with 21 while Jenn Murphy led everyone with 35 assists.  Emma Anderson led the way for SIUE as she tallied 11 kills.

Seyller helped the Purple Aces get off to a quick start as she registered a pair of kills to open up set number one.  With the score tied at 8-8, it was Meaghan Holmes’ turn as her kill sent the Aces on a 5-0 run as they took a 13-8 advantage.  She also notched the last kill of the run as UE capped its lead.

Two more tallied gave UE a 15-9 lead, but the Cougars came right back as Emma Anderson notched a pair of kills in a 6-0 run that tied the set up once again.  Stephanie Cerino helped Evansville score the next three points as they would hold on to take a 25-22 win.  Seyller’s fifth kill of the game sealed the win.

Another close game ensued in the second frame as Seyller notched yet another score to give UE a quick 2-0 lead.  The Cougars came back and the back-and-forth fight saw seven ties lead to a 14-14 score. 

SIU Edwardsville posted three points in a row to jump up 17-14 before seeing that lead stand at 23-18 following an ace and a UE error.  At that point, Hanna Wilson and Holmes, combined with three SIUE errors, helped the Aces tie the game up at 23-23.  The Cougars tallied the 24th point on a Brooke Smith kill before Ashley Ring helped the Aces post the next two points. 

The excitement kept going as the squads battled to a 28-28 tie before Ring gave UE a 29-28 lead.  With the match on the line, it was SIUE who committed the pivotal error as UE went up 2-0 in the match with a 30-28 win.

SIUE looked to right the ship as they began the third set with a 4-0 run.  That lead was short-lived, however, as four-straight Cougar errors helped the Aces tie it right up.  Evansville continued what would turn into a 9-2 run as Cerino led a 3-0 stretch to give the Aces a 9-6 edge.

Evansville’s advantage would later grow to five points at 19-14 before SIUE made one last effort.  In a match that featured several runs, the Cougars posted the next five points to tie it up once again at 19-19.  What would end up being a deciding moment came on the next point as a Jenn Murphy kill gave UE a lead it would not give up as they earned the 25-23 win and the sweep.

The Aces will put their two-game winning streak on the line this weekend as they take to the road for a pair of MVC matches beginning on Friday at Wichita State before a trip to Missouri State on Saturday.
