A memorial service in honor of Stephanie Marcotte has been scheduled for this evening, Wednesday, March 23, at 6:00 p.m. in Neu Chapel. The campus community is invited to attend.

Stephanie, a junior archaeology major from Bensenville, Illinois, was studying at Harlaxton College when she fell ill. She passed away while hospitalized at City Hospital in Nottingham.  Her mother and others from the Harlaxton family were at her bedside. 

Stephanie’s mother has requested that the UE campus wear purple today in honor of Stephanie and her love for Harlaxton and the University of Evansville.  

In addition to the memorial service, the Department of Archaeology will host an open house for the campus community today until 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 also 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.
