* Employee Wellness Nurse on Campus July 22

Visit the nurse in Koch North Lobby on Monday, July 22, 1-3 p.m. A healthy way to alleviate built-up muscle tension is through exercise. After a tightly scheduled day of meetings, exams, or errands, get active and aim for moderate intensity exercise. It may seem counterintuitive, but moving more will help you relax!

* Cortez Named to PDL Team of the Week

University of Evansville men’s soccer signee Felipe Cortez was named to this week’s Premier Development League Team of the Week, in a release issued by the league Friday afternoon.

Cortez, a transfer from Robert Morris-Chicago who will be making his debut for Evansville this fall, scored a pair of goals, including a stoppage-time game-winner to lead the Chicago Fire PDL to a 3-2 win over the Chicago Inferno.

Cortez is the second Purple Ace this season to earn a spot on the PDL Team of the Week, as Peter May was honored by the league earlier this season.

UE will open its 2013 season with a pair of exhibition contests against Belmont (Aug. 23) and Indianapolis (Aug. 25), before opening the regular season at the Bradley Tournament in Peoria, Ill., on Aug. 30 and Sept. 1.
