* UE cable provider is now Charter Communications

Time Warner Cable and Bright House recenlty merged with Charter Communications In the coming months, Charter plans to strip away Time Warner Cable and Bright House's names and introduce its own branding. This means the newly enlarged Charter is now one of the biggest television providers in the country, standing alongside Comcast, AT&T, Tech30, and Verizon.

Charter calls its cable TV and broadband services Spectrum. Charter has announced that it will initially streamline product pricing and packaging and introduce Spectrum by rolling it out in a phased approach beginning this fall. While we do not know the potential impact of this merger on the University of Evansville, we do know that even though the transition will take a while, changes will be coming. However, the Office of Administrative Services is working with Charter Communications to ensure that our existing contract pricing is not affected. We will keep you posted as more information is available.

For questions, please contact Kim Winsett at ext. 2940 or email kw83@evansville.edu.

* Benefit event to be held in honor of Bailey George

The loss of University of Evansville runner Bailey George from cancer earlier this year had such an impact on the Purple Aces program and the Evansville community. Head coach Don Walters is going to make sure that her memory will continue to live on as he has announced the formation of the Bailey George Memorial 5K Walk/Run.

Set for August 6, the race will take place at the Angel Mounds Cross Country Course in Evansville at 9:00 a.m. The course was the sight of the 2015 Missouri Valley Conference Championships. It will be a non-timed event, but a clock will be placed at the finish line for participants to view their times. A 400-meter children’s event will also take place that day.

Cost of entry is just $15 with proceeds going to the Bailey George Scholarship Fund. Donations are also welcome. All participants will receive a commemorative medal.

“What happened to Bailey is just tragic. For someone to be taken so young, it touches everyone,” Walters said. “The only way that we can remember things is to put them out there and deal with it. When we do that, we make things better. We know that Bailey is in a great place and she is watching over us. We hope that we get able to get great a lot of community support and put on a great event in Bailey’s honor.”

Pre-registration is encouraged, but walk-ups will also be accepted.
