Early Sunday morning the University received word that Ali Ali, 21, from Kuwait died in a motorcycle accident in downtown Evansville.  Ali was a mechanical engineering major who began at UE in January 2013. Dr. Brian Swenty referred to Ali as "a good student with a pleasant personality and great attitude." We know many in our campus community will feel this tragic loss. There will be a time of informal gathering today, October 13, at 3:00 p.m. in the Student Life Center - International Student Services area - for those who wish to gather together as a way to comfort one another. As students and faculty return to campus, other memorial plans will be announced via AceNotes. Anyone needing assistance may contact our University Counselors at 812-488-2663 or our University Chaplain at 812-488-2240. Please keep Ali's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers during these difficult days.
