* Campus closed May 30 due to planned water outage

Due to the ongoing Weinbach Avenue water main upgrade project, there will be two upcoming water outages significantly affecting campus.

The first will be May 23. It will only affect the water supply on Lincoln Avenue east of Weinbach and will last 4-6 hours. There will be no disruption of campus air conditioning with this outage. University buildings to be affected are:

  • 2004 Lincoln (Advancement Services)
  • University Apartments
  • Lincoln Park Apartments
  • Panhellenic Center
  • Ramona Apartments
  • Hazeart Apartments

The second water outage will be May 30 and will last 4-8 hours. It will affect the main campus water supply, disrupting distribution of hot and cold domestic water and preventing us from delivering chill water and steam to most of the campus buildings. Because this outage affects the water supply and air-conditioning to such a large portion of campus, the University will be closed May 30.

The facilities department will restore steam, chill water, and domestic cold and hot water once the water main work is complete and all services should be back online the evening of May 30.

For approximately 48 hours after both of these outages, there will be a precautionary boil advisory.

The City of Evansville’s position on this states, “While the potential for contamination of the drinking water is unlikely, the Evansville Water Utility is advising customers in the affected area to bring all cooking and drinking water to a complete boil for five (5) minutes before using”. During this advisory, showering, clothes washing and handwashing will be allowed, however all affected campus water fountains will be tagged as a precaution."


Upcoming Events

* RE-Thinking Diversity Summer Series: Dialogue on Race Offers First Session June 6

This summer the Office of Diversity Initiatives will offer one-hour session that will provide interactive dialogue to allow
campus participants to think and discuss about how to re-think everything you ever knew about race. The sessions will provide solution-oriented steps and strategies as well as resources for participants.

The first session will be offered on Wednesday, June 6, entitled, "Past to the Present," and participants must RSVP by Monday, June 4. The discussion will center around racism in the United States, its long and appalling past and presented by Rob Shelby, PhD, assistant professor/sociology.

The session will begin at noon at the Diversity Resource Center, 436 Weinbach Avenue (The House with the Purple Door.) Participants are encouraged to bring their lunch but drinks and snacks will also be offered.

Sessions are intended for any campus members and friends (i.e., faculty, staff, students, alumni or administrators). Anyone attending all of the sessions will be given a certificate of completion of Diversity and Inclusion at UE at the end of the summer sessions.

* Jevin Redman named Voice of the Aces

Jevin Redman, a native of Mt. Vernon, Ind., has been named the new Voice of the Aces and will represent the program on the Purple Aces Radio Network.

“I am beyond thrilled to be named the voice of the University of Evansville,” Redman said.  “Growing up in the Tri-State area, Aces Basketball has always been the talk of the town and I am excited to now be a small part of it.”

“I take great pride in being the voice of UE on their first ever multi-station radio network with Learfield Sports and can’t wait to relay the excitement over the airways to Evansville’s passionate fan base,” he added.

Redman joins the Purple Aces after working at Western Kentucky University as the radio play-by-play broadcaster for Lady Toppers Basketball.  He also hosted the weekly coaches radio show. 

His experience spans a wide range of sports in the area as he spent the 2017 season working for the Louisville Bats.  His tenure with the Cincinnati Reds Triple-A affiliate included work as their play-by-play announcer as well as working with media relations and in-game social media.  He also worked on the GLVC Sports Network doing TV for the 2017 basketball tournament.

In 2016, Redman worked with the Evansville Otters as the Director of Broadcasting and radio voice.  He has also done work for 14 WFIE in Evansville.

Redman’s career began in his college days at the University of Southern Indiana.  Between 2013 and 2017, he did radio for the Screaming Eagles baseball team as well as their men’s and women’s basketball squads while serving as the Sports Director at WSWI.

He graduated from USI with a BS in Marketing and Radio/Television.  A 2-time Jim Nantz Top 20 Collegiate Broadcaster, Redman was named the Best Play-by-Play Broadcaster in Indiana by the Indiana Broadcasters Association in 2016 while garnering the Broadcast Education Association Best Collegiate Play-by-Play Broadcaster in the nation award in 2015.

UE recently announced a partnership with Learfield Sports that helped to formulate the Purple Aces Radio Network.  The network encompasses five stations in the Tri-State area with WJPS 107.1 in Evansville/Boonville serving as the flagship station.
