* Walnut St. Redesign Includes "No Parking" Zones along Campus Corridor

The Walnut St. improvement project has been completed. The updated traffic plan is designed to reduce vehicle speeds and increase pedestrian safety. A major change has been the removal of all parking on Walnut St. between Weinbach Ave. and Rotherwood Ave. The removal of authorized parking applies to all vehicles, regardless of the length of time or reason for stopping in the prohibited areas.

Despite the posted “No Parking” signs, drivers are still parking on Walnut St. Vehicles that are illegally parked on Walnut St. create blind spots for motorists and pedestrians. These blind spots create an unsafe environment for our community members. The decision to illegally park in this area can lead to preventable incidents and injuries. Please respect the health and safety of your classmates and co-workers and park only in authorized areas. If you need a temporary parking permit to access on-campus parking areas, contact the office of Public Safety at 488-2051. A temporary parking permit will be issued at no cost.

It is important to note the enforcement of parking regulations on city streets is handled by the Evansville Police Department. Although tickets issued by the EPD cannot be appealed through the Office of Public Safety, we are committed to promoting compliance with the city parking regulations as part of our overall efforts to keep our campus community safe.

* Emilie Hill Named MVC Defensive Player of the Week

Making it back-to-back honors for the Aces, University of Evansville women's soccer junior Emilie Hill has been named Missouri Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Week, it was announced in a release from the Conference office Tuesday afternoon.

Hill's award follows teammate Michaela Till's Defensive Player of the Week honor last week as the Aces have taken two of the first three weekly defensive honors from The Valley.

In a set of two matches this week, Hill kept the Aces record unblemished, making and impact on both the attack and the defensive end. Against SEMO on Thursday, Hill contributed to the game-winning goal, providing an assist on Kristen Harvey's goal in the 25th minute of the 1-0 win. The shutout marked the 10th shutout Hill has contributed in just three seasons in white and purple. On Sunday, Hill helped limit the Norse to a goal and prevented NKU from evening the match to keep Evansville undefeated in the 1-1 tie. The Aces 4-0-2 start is the program's best in history, topping the four-game undefeated starts in 1994 and 2001.

The honor is the first conference weekly award for Hill, who has excelled for the Aces, capturing 2021 Preseason All-MVC honors and honorable mention all-MVC honors after the spring campaign.

Evansville is back in action on the road on Thursday at 6 PM with a matchup with Austin Peay in Clarksville, Tenn.
