Info You Should Know

* The James A. Byers Athletic Student Scholarship

Coach Jim Byers empowered his student-athletes to set them up to excel on and off the field leaving his legacy on many Aces’ hearts. He also left behind an endowed scholarship that will continue to help students-athletes of the future. Those interested in continuing his legacy might consider a gift to the James A. Byers Athletic Student Scholarship. The University presents the scholarship each spring to a junior in any of the Aces' varsity sports, for use during the student-athlete's senior year. A gift can be made online here or please contact the Office of Annual Giving at (812) 488-2021 for more information.

* 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.



* First annual Bailey George Memorial 5K a huge success

A field of close to 300 runners took part in the first annual Bailey George Memorial 5K Walk/Run on Saturday morning at Angel Mounds.

An exciting start to the day saw the children in attendance run a 400-meter race on the final part of the main course. It was a unique opportunity for the youth to complete a shorter race.

Following that portion, the 5K run took place. Making this a unique event, those who took part moved at their own pace with some running, others walking, and some circling the course as a group, enjoying the chance to be on the same course that Bailey did less than a year ago.

Current and former members of the Purple Aces cross country squads ran the race in honor of their friend and teammate. University of Evansville president Tom Kazee along with several university and athletic staff members and coaches also ran in the event. At the finish line, each person was given a medal commemorating Bailey George.

Special thanks go out to the Purple Aces’ Women’s Soccer, Volleyball and Men’s Soccer teams for volunteering their time at the event. Purple Aces Club board members as well as athletic staff also worked the event.

All proceeds from the event benefited the Bailey George Scholarship, which will go to a student at UE who is battling or has battled cancer. Donations are still being accepted here.
