* UE starts new academic year with strong enrollment

The University of Evansville starts the 2018-19 academic year with an outstanding freshman class representing a 13 percent increase over last year. New Evansville Aces will join a full-time student body of 2,443.

Members of the freshman class represent 29 states and 26 countries, with an increase in domestic ethnic diversity of 16 percent—an all-time high for the university. Additionally, UE received more applications this year than at any other time in the school’s history with a 24 percent increase in applications over the previous year.

The number of graduate students at UE increased by 15 percent this year. The new, state-of-the-art Stone Family Center for Health Sciences in downtown Evansville is now home to two of UE’s graduate programs—the Doctorate of Physical Therapy and the Physician Assistant program and demonstrates a university commitment to health sciences and our Evansville community.

“The increased interest is a direct reflection of the tremendous academic and experiential opportunities at UE,” said President Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz. “Students want to be a part of the UE experience, and there is a long list of exciting new developments at UE adding to the momentum.” 

In May, UE was the first university in Indiana and the 47th in the world designated as an Ashoka U Changemaker Campus, which recognizes the school’s role as a leader in social innovation. The changemaker culture at UE empowers students to improve the world around them - starting right on campus. 

“Come see what the excitement is about,” said vice president of enrollment, Shane Davidson. “We tailor campus visits to the individual interest of our prospective students, and we’d love to create a personal visit experience for anyone interested in seeing how UE can transform their life at a cost that is affordable for all students.”

Those interested in scheduling a campus tour can contact the Office of Admission at admission@evansville.edu or online at www.evansville.edu/visit.

* Active shooter drill planned for Fall Semester – do you know what to do?

The Evansville Police Department will be conducting an unannounced Active Shooter Drill some time during the fall semester. All members of the campus community are expected to participate in the drill.

Note: No simulated gun-fire will be used. The drill will commence via Ace Alert and the Active Threat Siren notification system.

DURING THE DRILL, PLEASE DO NOT MOVE VEHICLES AND DO NOT CALL 911.

How is campus notified of an active shooter?

A special siren will sound if there is an active threat on the campus. Specific information will be relayed via Ace Alerts text messaging, email, and on-campus computer and phone stations.  

RUN, HIDE, FIGHT
Unless there are specific instructions to shelter in place, each individual should determine for themselves if they should Run, Hide, or Fight. This decision should be made after considering the information available at the time.

  • RUN – If you believe you can safely run away from the danger, law enforcement believes this is the best option.
  • HIDE – If you cannot run away from the danger, law enforcement encourages individuals to hide from the threat.  If a door can be locked, lock the door. If not, consider if there is another way to create a barricade.
  • FIGHT – If running away or hiding is not an option and the threat is inevitable - don’t give up. Fight. Look for make-shift weapons. What can be thrown at the threat that can cause them to become disoriented and disarmed? 

View the “Run, Hide, Fight” video here: www.youtube.com/embed/5mzI_5aj4Vs 

The Best Preparation
The best preparation is to always consider what options are available given your current location. Where are the exits? 

Additional information can be obtained from the Safety and Security Website at www.evansville.edu/safety/emergencyProcedures.cfm.

Mildrelis Rodriguez notched five kills in the opening set to help the Aces take a 25-14 win. The teams battled in the early part of the set with UE holding a 12-10 lead. The course of the frame changed in a 6-1 stretch as Rodriguez posted a pair of kills to put UE up by seven – 18-11. Rachel Tam also added a service ace. With Evansville holding a 20-14 advantage, Elena Redmond did the serving as UE reeled off the final four points, capped off by an ace of her own.

With the second frame knotted up at 2-2, UE scored four in a row with Alondra Vazquez posting the first kill of her UE career. Olivia Goldstein also added an ace as UE took the lead. Tennessee State fought back within a point at 11-10 and remained in the hunt until a 5-0 run by UE would see them extend their lead to 20-15.

Evansville made its first run, scoring three in a row with the game tied up at 3-3 as Olivia Goldstein had an ace before Tam registered a kill to give UE a 6-3 advantage. The Tigers marched back as an 8-1 rally gave them an 11-7 lead.  Kylie Hayes served well, posting an ace in their run.

* McInnis named to All-Tournament Team as Aces host APSU and NKU

Sophomore Allana McInnis earned a spot on the Dunn Hospitality Invitational All-Tournament Team as the University of Evansville volleyball team took on Austin Peay and Northern Kentucky on Saturday inside Meeks Family Fieldhouse.

UE (5-4) fell by a 3-0 final to Austin Peay (7-1) and another 3-0 contest against NKU (5-3). In the other match, the Norse picked up a 3-2 win over the Governors.

NKU hit .440 in game two on their way to a 25-15 win. They took a 6-2 lead and quickly extended it to 11-3. Their lead reached 10 at 22-12 before they held that advantage for the final of 25-15.

The lead remained at three (8-5) when the Norse rallied to tie it up at 8-8.  Tam put the lead back in the hands of the Aces with a kill to give UE a 9-8 edge. The lead would grow to a pair for the Aces at 17-15, but Northern Kentucky rallied back. A pair of UE errors saw them take a 20-18 advantage. From there, they held on for a 25-21 win to clinch the tournament championship.

In the opener for the day, Austin Peay took control in game one, cruising to a 25-9 win. Mildrelis Rodriguez had three kills in the frame. UE quickly regrouped in the second set as a Joselyn Coronel service ace gave the Aces a 5-2 lead. Later, a pair of Governor errors set the Aces lead at 12-8. 

Austin Peay battled back, taking a 16-13 lead before freshman Cecilia Thon got the Aces back on track. Her serving helped UE tied it up at 17-17, but the Governors were too much as they pulled away for the 25-19 win.

Evansville put forth its best effort in game three. A Rodrigez kill tied it up at 4-4 before APSU took a 10-6 lead. That is when Rachel Tam accomplished a rare feat. Three service aces in a row, coupled with a kill, helped Evansville tie the game at 11-11 before Kerra Cornist followed with a point of her own to give the Aces a 13-12 lead.

Neither team relented down the stretch as eight more ties led to a 20-20 score. After the Governors posted two in a row, the Aces responded with three-straight points, capped off by a Thon kill. Austin Peay grabbed the momentum back as a Caroline Waite kill helped them record the final three points to take the set, 25-23, while clinching a 3-0 win in the match.

Tam posted 11 kills, tying for the top total in the match. Thon notched eight digs and 11 assists while Allana McInnis posted a team-best 12 helpers.
