* Flu Shots are Still Available at the UE Health Clinic

Flu shots are still available at the UE Health Clinic for all students and employees!

Getting a flu shot is an important step for protecting yourself and your fellow Aces from getting the flu this season. With COVID-19 still a concern and living in a residential community, this precaution becomes more important than ever, especially as it can help keep valuable resources available to those with COVID-19.

Flu shots are not required by the University, but strongly recommended. This year, flu shots are FREE for all students, as well as employees and their dependents enrolled in UE health insurance. Employees not covered by UE health insurance may receive a flu shot for $20. You always have the option to get your flu shot from your primary care provider or choose the best location or provider for your health.

Vaccines are available Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.


COVID-19 Corner

* Been positive for COVID-19? You can still get it again! Stay safe, Aces.

Per the CDC, It is still unknown how long the antibodies protect someone from reinfection. Therefore, prevention practices must be practiced even if someone has recovered.

Info You Should Know

* AcesHaven Food Pantry Available for Students Prior to Thanksgiving Break

AcesHaven is a student established resource center that features a fully stocked food pantry to help students who are facing food insecurities. University breaks can be especially challenging for students without resources, but there is help available! Please visit the food pantry or other resources below BEFORE Thanksgiving Break.

Aces Haven Pantry

If you are unsure about how you will get your next meal, please stop by our pantry, as we believe no Purple Ace should be hungry. AcesHaven is located in Neu Chapel, right inside the back entrance (closest to Memorial Plaza). Please take only what you need, as we want to make sure we have enough for everyone seeking assistance. It will be unlocked from 7am-10pm each day and will operate on the honor system. Neu Chapel will be closed for break, so please visit before end of day Wednesday.

Electronic Food Pantry

Additionally, we have established an electronic food pantry that allows us to transfer donated AceBucks to students who have a verified need. Please contact Student Financial Services to discuss this option.

* Receive a Thanksgiving Dessert

If you'll be staying on campus over the Thanksgiving break, you can still celebrate! Sign up to be matched with a UE faculty or staff member, and receive a delicious treat made just for you. Desserts will be dropped off at your door. Sign up is open until Monday, November 23, at noon.

* Student Leadership Speaking Opportunity

This year's Student Leadership Conference will be focused on the topic of Overcoming. We are looking for 3 students who would like to share their experiences with overcoming challenges, mental health, stress, fear, failure, even the unknown. The conference will take place on March 13th, 2021. If you or a student you know would be interested in speaking please complete the following application.

* Library Resources from a Distance

With less than 2 weeks left of the in-person semester, I wanted to remind everyone about how students and faculty access library resources from off-campus.

The key is a BARCODE!

Once set up, you can access articles/eBooks from off-campus in 2 ways:

Quest – sign in to see full text article links with UE email/password. FT links will take you to proxy server log in screen. Log in with last name & library barcode. Example screen on library homepage.

Off-campus access/Proxy server - Log in with last name & library barcode. Long list of every database UE subscribes to. Must go through the proxy server to access the Washington Post from home. Confused about the best resource? Check out the Databases by Subject page.

To get a barcode, come to the library! We are open many, many hours.

There is still time to register for Winter Intersession courses. The online courses run December 10, 2020 to January 15, 2021, and students may take up to two courses. For registration and payment deadlines and information, visit the Registrar area.

Sympathy to...

* UE Mourns the Loss of Hugh Ahlering

The University of Evansville mourns the loss of all-time basketball legend Hugh Ahlering, who passed away on Wednesday at the age of 88 following a long bout with leukemia. Ahlering was the Most Outstanding Player of the 1959 NCAA College Division Tournament and led the Purple Aces to the first of five National Championships that season. The 1973 UE Athletics Hall of Fame inductee saw his No. 20 jersey retired in 2018. A graduate of Bosse High School, Ahlering came to UE following a tour of duty in Korea. The entire UE community extends its condolences to the Ahlering family.
