Upcoming Events

* Hochwender to speak at Science with a Twist today

Professor of biology Cris Hochwender will be speaking at Bokeh Lounge today - Wednesday. August 16 - at 6:30 p.m. His talk on loss of habitat and the survival of native species is part of a series called Science with a Twist, a novel forum to learn about cutting-edge topics in science and technology from leading experts.

Mitch Luman from Evansville Museum has created this forum to provide an interactive, informal atmosphere where there’s no such thing as a dumb question.

Everyone has fun at Science with a Twist, from those completely unfamiliar with science to self-identified “science geeks.”

Science with a Twist is open to anyone and everyone. Join us at the Bokeh Lounge, have a beverage, and feed your mind. The night will include science trivia, a time to socialize, and an opportunity to talk about what we can all do to help the survival of native species.

* Scam alert - copiers/printers

Individuals on campus are again randomly receiving scam calls from individuals requesting departmental printer and/or copier information (model or serial numbers, cartridge numbers, etc.). Keep in mind, UE current printer/copier vendors already have access to UE equipment and supply information and will NEVER call departments requesting any information. In some cases, scammers are calling for individuals by name, saying that they need copier/printer information for repair purposes and/or special toner pricing.

A scammer's 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 or order copier supplies 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 ext. 2940.
