The Clifford Memorial Library entrance will remain open (as it has been during the summer) and most services will be offered from our temporary service desk in Room 262 (Acquisitions Department)

Hours of service will be Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The following services will be offered:
Pick up and drop off of library materials
Interlibrary loan and document delivery services

Photocopier with scan-to-email capability

Library Instruction services will be offered as usual, but will be conducted in a course's regular classroom, or elsewhere on campus if necessary.

In addition, Research Assistance will be offered by Randy Abbott from his office in room 207.  Renovations are complete in the area adjacent to his office, so students can safely enter that part of the library to meet with him.  

Students (and employees) can make Research Assistance appointments using our normal sign-up page.  We will also accommodate walk-in students who have research questions.

* Cris Hochwender to Speak at September 2 Andiron Lecture

The first lecture of this year’s University of Evansville Andiron Lecture Series is set for September 2. UE professor of biology Cris Hochwender will be speaking on “Sustaining Wildlife: Enhancing Native Plant Diversity at Vectren Conservation Park, in the Native Plant Garden in Koch Courtyard, and in Your Backyard.”

All the lectures in the series are at 4 p.m. in Eykamp 252 in Ridgway University Center, preceded by a social hour with beverages at 3:45 p.m. They are free and open to the public.

Hochwender earned his bachelor’s degree in biology at Cornell College and his PhD in biology at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. He has carried out ecological research for 25+ years, publishing those findings in journals that include American Naturalist, Annual Review of Ecology and Systematics, Oecologia, Evolutionary Ecology, and Evolution. His research has explored plant defense against herbivores, plant tolerance to damage, local adaptation of plants, and structuring forces of arthropod herbivore communities. More recently, he has addressed questions that center on restoration ecology.

Healthy local ecosystems can provide ecological services of great benefit to human society, while providing a refuge for native species. While salvaging remnant habitat and restoring lost ecological communities is the work of restoration ecologists, every backyard gardener can take on similar (although smaller scale) efforts by growing native wildflowers, grasses, and trees. This lecture will explore the importance, the challenges, and approaches to sustaining biodiversity in Southwest Indiana. Weather permitting, the lecture will culminate with a walk of the native plant garden in Koch Courtyard.
 

Info You Should Know

* The View from Neu: A Monday Reflection from UE Chaplain Tammy Gieselman

I liked the brief story New Testament scholar and preacher, Tom Long, once told: ‘When I was a child and did something that I shouldn’t have done, something that displeased my parents very much, my mother would often use a phrase that I suppose other parents have used as well. She would look me in the eye and say, “That was uncalled for!”

It’s an interesting phrase, isn’t it? “Uncalled for.” As if there’s someone out there calling for you…. One of the deepest human hungers that we have is to be called for. And one of the deepest human fears that we have is that there is no one out there who cares enough about us to call for us.’

As we live into this beautiful Monday, I wonder if you know that you have been “called?” On some level, we have been called to UE to help change lives. What an honor. I am grateful for each of you, but I don’t say thank you often enough: when you help me with the account I can’t find, when you mow the lawn in front of Neu Chapel, when you serve food at yet another campus luncheon, when I forget to submit the form and you file it on my behalf, when you take care of a student after hours, and I could go on. Thank you, everyone, for making the UE campus a home for many.

* Call for UExplore Research Proposals

Students, please consider participating in the UExplore undergraduate research program this semester. The deadline for the Fall Semester student-generated proposals is Thursday, September 10, 2015. Ten copies of your proposal are due in the Office of Academic Affairs before the end of the business day of the proposal deadline. Information about the UExplore program and the proposal template can be found from the UExplore website (http://undergraduateresearch.evansville.edu). You can request up to $1000 for hardware and services to support your proposed research project. Proposals from nearly every department on campus have been funded. 

* Reminder for First Year Students: IDEALS Survey Coming Soon

PosterFirst year students will be receiving the Interfaith Diversity Experiences & Attitudes Longitudinal Survey (IDEALS) in a few shorts days! Thank you for being willing to participate in this important research! Students who take the survey will be provided $5.00 in cash!!

IDEALS is a national survey that will be used to identify high-impact practices associated with positive interaction across religious and spiritual diversity. According to Interfaith Youth Core, UE will be able to leverage these high-impact practices to create a healthy campus environment, introduce effective programming/experiences, and learn more about the religious climate on campus. This study is the first of its kind. Previous studies have provided a foundational understanding of interfaith interaction, but few tools fully explore the ways in which we can leverage campus experiences to promote effective interfaith work. IDEALS is designed as a longitudinal study that explores the way in which the UE campus can better understand what programmatic experiences are effective and helpful for students.

* Neu Chapel Staff Participate in Sacred Music and Interfaith Research

Tammy Gieselman, University Chaplain; Douglas Reed, University Organist Emeritus; and Patrick Ritsch, Neu Chapel Organist, travelled to Boston on July 20 to participate in an intensive research expedition sponsored by the Neu Chapel Society. The 5-day mission allowed the Staff to visit several historic organs in the Boston area and to conduct site-visits at university campuses with robust interfaith programs, which include sacred worship space for all students. Of primary interest were university chapels at Wellesley College, Brandeis University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Tufts University.

Their work also included a concentrated visit to the C.B. Fisk, Inc. organ building shop in Gloucester, where Patrick Ritsch participated in a mini-apprenticeship. Fisk president, Steven Dieck, also led the group through the intricate mechanical workings of the new Fisk organ completed in 2013 for Harvard Memorial Chapel. The group’s research included visits to several other Fisk organs including (Old West United Methodist Church and All Saints Church, Ashmont) and historic organs at Holy Cross Cathedral (E. & G.G. Hook & Hastings), MIT Chapel (Holtkamp), and Methuen Music Hall (E. F. Walcker).

Harlaxton Happenings

* Harlaxton Semester Begins

Congratulations to the Fall 2015 Harlaxton Semester students who arrived at the Manor on August 27 and will start classes on August 31. 

* Bianca Leggett publishes book

Dr. Bianca Leggett (teaching fellow in British Studies at Harlaxton College) is the editor of new collection, entitled Twenty-Fist Century British Fiction, which is to be published by Gylphi Press on August 25.

Since the turn of the millennium British fiction has evolved in new and unpredictable directions. Its mercurial nature makes the study of contemporary British fiction both dynamic and challenging. New voices, forms and themes sometimes require the discarding of old critical frameworks and the creation of new ones. The volume not only maps the journey of British fiction in the 21st century, but also hints at the path ahead.

Athletics

* Gonzalez, Matic Score in UE Men's Soccer Season-Opening Loss at Milwaukee

The University of Evansville men’s soccer team (0-1-0) was defeated 5-2 in the season-opening match at Milwaukee (1-0-0) on Friday night. Senior forward Mark Anthony Gonzalez tallied one goal and one assist as freshman forward Mikey Matic recorded his first career goal. Evansville’s next match will be at home on Sept. 4 for the opening round of the ProRehab Soccer Classic and Military Appreciation Night vs. Air Force.

“We got beat by the better team tonight,” said Evansville head men’s soccer coach Marshall Ray. “It was not for a lack of effort, but effort alone does not win you games. We were a bit naïve in our defending from the front to the back and they put us under pressure in order to take their chances.”

Milwaukee took the early lead with goals in the 11th and 23rd minutes.

Down 2-0, UE drew closer with a 37th minute goal by Gonzalez. Sophomore midfielder Ian McGrath sent a thru ball into the box for Gonzalez who scored his first goal of the season (21st career).

The score stayed 2-1 until the Panthers added to the lead with goals in the 65th and 72nd minutes.

Trailing by three, Matic scored for UE on a 75th minute strike from just outside the 18 yard box, making the score 4-2.
Milwaukee tallied one more goal on the night in the 5-2 Aces loss.

Senior forward Nate Opperman had a team-high three shots, including two on goal. Sophomore goalkeeper Matthew Keller notched 12 saves.

“We have a lot of video to watch as a group and individually,” added Ray. “We will get back to work on Sunday and prepare for our upcoming tournament.”

UE hosts the annual ProRehab Aces Classic next weekend (Sept. 4-6) with Air Force, Belmont and Drake visiting Arad McCutchan Stadium. All current or retired military members receive free admission on Sept. 4. The match will begin at 7:30 p.m. CDT.

* Cerino named to All-Tournament Team as Aces finish weekend

Senior Stephanie Cerino was named to the All-Tournament Team as the University of Evansville volleyball team wrapped up its first weekend of the season with a 2-1 record after falling to Wright State by a 3-0 final in the last game of the Holiday Inn Classic.

Cerino finished the weekend with 32 kills while hitting .221. Also having a stellar first weekend was Genesis Miranda. The sophomore from Puerto Rico tallied 52 kills, an average of 4.33 per set. She also tied Rocio Fortuny for the team-best four service aces over the weekend.

“We learned a lot about our team throughout the tournament,” head coach Manolo Concepcion said. “Although the result of the last match was not what we hoped for, the girls fought until the end. This is just the beginning. Now it is about studying ourselves and getting back to the gym and continue to emphasize on the process. We have 11 more preseason matches to work with.”

In the finale for the weekend, it was Miranda leading the way once again with a game-hgih 18 kills. Cerino finished with eight. Leading the Raiders was Megan Hopkins, who totaled 13 tallies on the day.

The opening frame was close in the early going, but with the score tied at 6-6, WSU scored seven of the next ten to open up a 13-9 lead. Lorena Marquez helped the Purple Aces fight back. With her serving, the Aces were able to fight back and tie the game up at 16-16. From that point, it was all Raiders as they finished the frame on a 9-3 stretch to take the win.

It was all Raiders in the second set as they opened up a 9-2 lead and never relented, taking a 25-18 victory and a commanding 2-0 lead in the match.

Evansville did its best to fight back in the third game as the jumped out to a 7-4 advantage. Gabriela Roman started the set off with a kill to set UE on the run. The Raiders came right back with a 4-1 stretch to knot the game at 8-8. Their run continued as they led by four at 24-20. Evansville never gave up. The Aces scored the next four points to tie it up. Miranda had three kills in the stretch. WSU scored to go up 25-24, but an error saw UE tie it right back up. The rally was not meant to be, though, as a pair of Raider kills clinched the match.

The Aces stay on the road on Tuesday as the travel to Austin Peay for a 6 p.m. tilt.

* UE Women's Soccer Wins 2-1 vs. Miami (Ohio)

The University of Evansville women’s soccer team (1-3-0) scored twice in the first 20 minutes, and held off a late Miami University (2-2-0) comeback for a 2-1 win on Sunday afternoon. Freshman forward Sara Osinski and sophomore defender Olivia Shafer each scored in the contest as UE claimed their first victory of the season.

“I am happy that we were able to put two complete halves together today,” said Evansville head women’s soccer coach Krista McKendree. “Our energy and intensity was the best it has been (this season). We put emphasis on that yesterday and the girls responded well.”

Evansville went ahead in the 13th minute when Osinski collected a shot off the crossbar from junior midfielder Bronwyn Boswell and scored over the top.

Ahead 1-0, the Aces increased the lead in the 18th minute. Freshman midfielder Molly Lear sent a corner kick from the far sideline in to the six yard box where Shafer headed the ball into the lower right corner. The goal pushed UE up 2-0. Neither team scored again in the remainder of the first half as UE outshot Miami (Ohio) 11-6 early on.

After halftime, the Redhawks brought the deficit to one with a goal in the 69th minute. Clinging to a 2-1 lead, UE goalkeeper Simone Busby recorded three saves in the remainder of regulation to preserve the Purple Aces win.

“We came out strong today,” added Shafer. “We were able to not drop our effort after giving up the goal.”

The goals for Osinski and Shafer were the second for each student-athlete this season. Boswell and Lear also tallied their second assists this year. Lear led all Purple Aces with five shots (one on goal). Osinski also recorded four shots (three on goal). Busby secured seven saves in the match.

UE is on the road for their next two matches at Purdue (Sept. 4) and at Butler (Sept. 6) The Aces are back at home on Sept. 11 against Belmont for their Military Appreciation / Wounded Warrior Night. The match will be held at Arad McCutchan Stadium and begin at 7:00 p.m. CDT.
