It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Stephanie Marcotte.  Stephanie, a junior archaeology major from Bensenville, Illinois, fell ill while studying at Harlaxton College.  She had been hospitalized at City Hospital in Nottingham for the last week.  Her mother and others from the Harlaxton family were vigilantly at her bedside.  Stephanie’s mother has requested that the UE campus wear purple on Wednesday in honor of Stephanie and her love for Harlaxton and the University of Evansville.   In addition, the department of archaeology will host an open house for the campus community on Wednesday, 3:00-5:00 p.m. as an opportunity to support each other during this difficult time.    Please be aware the university counseling center and the university chaplain are available to the campus community for support.  The counseling center can be reached at 812-488-2663 or after hours by calling the office of safety and security at 812-488-2051.  The university chaplain can be reached at 812-488-2240.  Please keep Stephanie’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
