* Summer Hours Begin May 7

The University will begin a modified summer schedule starting Monday, May 7 and ending Monday, August 6. 

Business hours for the campus will be adjusted during this period to 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. In all cases, the area supervisor is responsible for the scheduling decisions that will best meet the University’s and their respective department’s service requirements during business hours. We will return to regular hours on Monday, August 6.

The modified summer work schedule is incumbent on ensuring coverage to service our many constituencies. It is important to maintain our commitment and communication with students and their parents during the summer months. Your assistance in this regard is greatly appreciated.

* Fight for Justice

Take a break from studying and writing, grab a friend, and meet by Carson Center at 6:00 p.m.TONIGHT - and then take a bus or carpool to Crossroads Christian Church and make a big difference in this community just by being present! You will even get a free T-shirt! The group will sit with approximately 1500 other community members and ask government leaders and policy makers, including Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, to make a change in the way our city treats citizens who have been convicted of drug possession or abuse. Evansville currently has a program that provides help to these people to break their addiction and help them to become a successful, productive member of society. However, only about 100 people can be helped through this intensive program, while over 100 more sit waiting in jail. The group will be asking the city to divert funds from housing these people in jail to paying for more social workers in the Drug Court to help 100 more people at a time. If100 students from UE attend, they will be representing the number of people who will be helped. So, please come be counted as a supporter of justice!

* Have a Writing Center Appointment? Please Honor It!

With semester end fast approaching, the Writing Center calendar is bursting with appointments--a good thing! If you have booked an appointment, please honor it by coming to it on time. If by chance you cannot keep the appointment you have made, remember to cancel it, allowing enough time for another student to take the spot you held. Time at the Center is coveted, and the tutors want to serve as many students as they can. When someone does not show up for an appointment he or she has booked, this is time wasted--and not fair to the other students. Thank you for honoring the appointments you make!
 

* What UEL Can Do 4U: WorldCat

Do you want to find a CD of Once in a Lifetime, the comedy by Moss Hart and George Kaufman?  Are you looking for books authored by Mitt Romney and Barack Obama?  Do you need resources dealing with Harlaxton College? Are you searching for books on the health care system in the U.S. or in Indiana? Search for and find all of these items in WorldCat.

WorldCat is the world’s largest union catalog.  This unique database contains millions of records representing library-owned resources—both physical and digital—that cross all subjects and languages. More than 10,000 libraries participate in WorldCat and searching this huge database allows you to know which libraries hold what materials.  More than one billion pieces of information are contained within WorldCat. 

WorldCat was conceived and produced by OCLC, a library membership organization established in Dublin, Ohio, in 1967.  It was founded by a small group of librarians who believed that by working together, sharing records, they could reduce information costs.

Contact Kathy Bartelt (kb4@evansville.edu) or Shane White (sw69@evansvill.edu) with questions or comments.

* Financial Aid Announcement for Stafford Loan Recipients

Students who have received a Federal Stafford Loan while attending UE and plan to graduate,  withdraw from school, or transfer to another school, are mandated by federal regulations to attend an Exit Counseling Session.  The Office of Financial Aid will hold a session on April 25 at 11:00 am (Reading Study Day) in Hyde Hall, Room 126 and on May 4 at 11:30 in Hyde Hall, Room 103.

Athletics

* Creighton, Changstrom Sweep Aces

The University of Evansville softball team dropped a 7-0 decision in today’s series finale against the Creighton Blue Jays.

Five hits, three walks and an Evansville error led to a seven-run bottom of the first for the Blue Jays. The 7-0 lead  would prove to be all that Creighton would need to secure the win, as Creighton starter Becca Changstrom kept the Aces at bay with a one-hit shutout performance in the circle.

Junior Tamara Robey broke up Changstrom’s no-hitter with a soft infield single in the top of the sixth, recording UE’s only hit of the ball game.

Junior Kendall Kautz (1-6) took the loss in the circle, giving up all seven runs, four of which were earned, off five hits in the first inning. Sophomore Emily Morris tossed the final six innings of the game, scattering five hits and striking out one batter as she held the Blue Jays scoreless in the relief effort.

The Aces will return home for a single game against Southern Illinois on Tuesday to complete the three-game series against the Salukis.

* Aces Baseball Downed, 9-5, By Dayton In Series Rubber Match

Scoring four runs in the top of the ninth inning, the University of Dayton broke a 5-5 stalemate and captured the series win over the University of Evansville baseball team, 9-5, Sunday afternoon at Braun Stadium. The loss drops the Aces record to 24-16 overall, while the Flyers improve to 19-22 on the season.

Dayton outhit the Aces, 16-8, as Jake Mahon led UE with three hits, a run batted in, and a run scored. Senior Trentt Copeland also recorded multiple hits, going 2-for-4 with one RBI. Freshman Kyle Pollock logged a team-high two RBI and also scored a run.

Sophomore James Kohler (0-1) took the loss, allowing two runs, three hits, and a walk in 2.1 innings. Kohler relieved starter Kyle Freeland who left the game tied five all after the sixth. The southpaw was credited to five runs, 10 hits, a walk, and three strikeouts. Zach Taylor tossed a third in the ninth, tagged with two runs and three hits, while Jake Naumann faced one batter and struck him out to end the side.

Evansville took a 1-0 lead in the first inning, as Mahon singled to right field, advanced to third on a wild throw from the outfield, and scored on Pollock’s sacrifice fly.

Dayton countered in the second, stringing three singles and a fielder’s choice together. The Flyers also added two more runs in the third inning on four singles for a 3-1 advantage.

However, the Aces battled back with a run in the fourth on Copeland’s 55th career double, moving him into sixth place all-time at UE. Evansville also rallied for three runs in the fifth to regain the lead, 5-3. After Tim Bodine drew a leadoff walk in the inning, Mahon doubled, Pollock doubled, and Kevin Kaczmarski tripled, consecutively, with one out.

Unfortunately, those would be UE’s last runs of the game, as Dayton reliever Denton Sagerman (1-1) held the Aces scoreless and without a hit in four innings of work.

Dayton plated the last six runs of the game, scoring two in the sixth off Freeland and with the score tied, 5-5, the top of the ninth, the Flyers combined five singles together for four more runs.

A.J. Ryan led Dayton’s offense, going 4-for-4 with two runs scored, as five Flyers recorded multiple hits.

The Aces are back in action Wednesday, hosting Murray State at 6:00 p.m. before returning to Missouri Valley Conference play next weekend versus Bradley.
