To volunteer please sign up here.

* Attention student employment supervisors!

Over the past couple of years, the Office of Financial Aid has collected concerns, suggestions, etc. regarding the UE student employment process from faculty, staff, and students.  As a result, we have revamped the process to make it more streamlined and student centered.

Beginning with the Fall 2016 semester, there will be several changes to student employment.

Because of this, we encourage supervisors to come to the student supervisor training sessions scheduled August 8 at 2:00 p.m. in Room 126 in Hyde Hall, and at the Fall Faculty Conference on August 17 at 10:00 a.m. to see a demonstration and learn more about the new processes. 

For more information on the student employment process, please see the supervisor guidelines for student employment available through student employment management on WebAdvisor.

* Counterfeit $100 bills

We have received information from Old National Bank that four $100 bills have been received by its Evansville branches, including the branch located across from the University.  A description of the counterfeit bill is:

• It is the old design, but looks like a new bill (e.g., bleached, bright paper)
• Has the hologram and passes the “pen” test.
• When held to the light, there should be a watermark to the left of the portrait that reads “USA ONE HUNDRED” – however, the watermark on the counterfeit is blurred and words cannot be read.

If you receive any suspicious one hundred dollar bills, please notify the Office of Safety and Security immediately at 812-488-2051. 

* Ladies in Pink video auditions

Want to be a part of the sharpest looking group on UE's campus? Is a capella your forte? Beat the competition. Submit a 1:30-2:00 minute video of your singing and/or beatboxing abilities (without any instruments) to by August 12 for consideration. We won't give the puns a rest until you do!

The UE Bookstore is looking for individuals to help in the store for approximately two weeks during fall book rush. Activities include operating the register and stocking textbooks. If anyone is interested or knows of anyone who is looking for a little extra cash, please contact the Bookstore.
