Info You Should Know

* Scam Alerts – Copiers/Printers

Individuals on campus are again randomly receiving scam calls from individuals requesting departmental printer and/or copier model or serial information.  Keep in mind, UE current printer/copier vendors already have access to UE equipment and will never call departments requesting it.  In some cases, scammers are calling for individuals by name, saying that they need copier/printer information for repair purposes.  A scammers intent is to obtain information and to bill the University. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION.  Simply tell the caller that you are not authorized to provide information and refer them to the Office of Administrative Services.  Usually this quickly ends the conversation. 

If you receive a scam call, please report it to Kim Winsett, Office of Administrative Services at 2940.


* Help Recycle Paper

The Phonathon program is always looking for paper to recycle as call sheets, and thanks to the campus community, has not had to buy paper for at least 5 years. If you are interesting in helping with this venture, UE’s Recycling Program has offered to supply some small recycling bins that people can have at their desk or by their printer. These bins would be for collecting paper that could be used for Phonathon, and would need to meet the following criteria:
• one side of paper must be blank
• paper can be any color
• paper must be at least 8.5” x 11”; larger paper can be cut for use
• OK if paper has been 3-hole punched and/or stapled
• Should not contain anything super-personal, such as copies of checks, SSN’s, bank account numbers, etc.

If you’d like a bin for your office, please contact Robin Greenlee at extension 2273 or




* Softball Earns NFCA Academic Honors

The University of Evansville softball team has been recognized by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) for its academic achievements during the 2010-11 school year. The Aces ranked 96th among NCAA Division I softball programs with a team grade point average of 3.149.

As a second component to the NFCA's academic award program, current senior Maggie Little and junior Halie Malone, along with last year's seniors Jen Stahlhut and Kelci Alsip, were named as NFCA Division I All-America Scholar Athletes for their achievements in the classroom last season.  The award is given to any player submitted by a member coach who achieved a 3.50 grade point average or higher during the 2010-11 academic year.

"To be truly successful as a student-athlete at the Division I level is very difficult," said head coach Mark Redburn. "I am very proud of not only the four who received the individual award but also of the team as a whole for achieving such academic success in the classroom."
