* 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. 
 

What's Happening Today

* Catholic Mass in Neu Chapel Tonight

The final Wednesday Mass of the year will be tonight at 9:30 p.m. in Neu Chapel, with Fr. Ryan Hilderbrand presiding. This is a great chance to stop for prayer during your studies. The Rosary will be prayed at 9:10 p.m., and Confessions will be available at 9:00 p.m.
 

* Bookstore Book Buyback April 25 - May 2

Book Buyback at the UE Bookstore starts at noon on April 25 and runs through Wednesday, May 2. Promotions during the week include an IPAD giveaway and daily ITune drawings. You can register each time you sell books. Promotions also include merchandise discounts, Sweet Poppins and other items.

You may sell books back as many times during the week as you wish and you do NOT need your original receipt. You will need your student ID. We freely offer quotes on books whether used on this campus or not. You'll always get cash on spot. A majority of the books we buy stay on campus to benefit the campus community.  In addition to regular pricing on books we have over 200 titles that offer special bonus pricing well above any others.

Please remember to bring all components, including CDs, that came with your textbooks as that may result in better pricing.  Any workbooks or texts that require answers be written in them should be clean for value.  Also always keep an eye on your books and report any missing textbooks to the Bookstore as soon as possible. 

If you have any questions about Buyback be sure to ask or contact the Bookstore. Buyback ends promptly at 5 p.m. on May 2 so make sure you get in before that time.

* Aces, Fortner Stun Salukis With 9-0 Run-Rule Win

The University of Evansville softball team posted a 9-0 run-rule victory over Southern Illinois in last night's game, marking the first time that the Aces have posted a mercy-rule win over the Salukis since an 8-0 win in the 2003 Missouri Valley Conference Tournament.

With the win, the Aces spoil the series sweep by Southern Illinois, finishing with a 1-2 record against the Salukis after dropping a pair of games in last week’s doubleheader. 

Freshman Kayla Fortner was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate with a pair of doubles and a home run on the night, marking her fifth round-trip hit of the year. Fortner tallied five RBI and two runs scored in the win. Junior Brianna Villanueva went 2-for-2 from the right side, notching an RBI and a run scored against the Salukis.

As a team, the Aces finished the night with eight hits, with junior Tamara Robey, senior Maggie Little and freshman Victoria Dellorto each chipping in a single hit at the plate. 

Junior pitcher Sarah Patterson was lights out on the mound, allowing just four hits and striking out three as she held the Salukis scoreless en route to a five-inning shutout victory. The effort marked the 12th complete game for Patterson, who improves to 8-15 on the year.

The Aces (14-31), now improve to 5-16 in the Missouri Valley Conference as they continue to fight for a bid to the MVC Tournament on May 10. Evansville will continue a five-game homestand tomorrow with a doubleheader against Austin Peay before resuming Valley play with a three-game home series against Drake this weekend. Wednesday’s games against the Governors is set to start at 5:00 p.m.

Game Recap:
Freshman Kayla Fortner blasted a towering shot over the score board in the bottom of the first to give UE an early 1-0 lead.
Villanueva started the bottom of the third with a single up the middle before moving to second on a sacrifice bunt by sophomore Katie Sears. Pinch-hitter junior Alicia Betancur worked a four-pitch walk from reliever Alyssa Wunderlich to put runners at first and second for Fortner. A wild pitch moved both runners up a bag before Fortner sent a line drive to the centerfield fence, scoring both runners on the double. Senior Amy Gaertner reached first on a full-count walk to put runners at first and second before the Salukis made their second pitching change of the inning, bringing in Brittany Lang with one out on the board. Senior Maggie Little then hit a hard liner right at Jayna Spivey at second base, who was able to throw out Fortner at the bag to turn the double play and end the inning with the Aces leading 3-0.

The Aces broke the game open in the bottom of the fourth, as Dellorto started the game with a walk before sophomore Niki Rahming reached safely on an infield error. Junior Halie Malone attempted a sacrifice bunt, but a throwing error by Wunderlich allowed both Dellorto and Rahming to score as Malone was able to go all the way to third base on the error. Villanueva followed with her second hit of the game, singling to right field to bring in pinch-runner Mariah Ferguson and put the Aces up 6-0. Sears replaced Villanueva at first as a fielder’s choice marked the first out of the inning. Robey roped an infield single to put runners at first and second for Fortner, who then belted her second double of the game to score both runners safely, as UE extended its lead to 8-0. A ground out by Gaertner put two outs on the board, but Little came through with a two-out single to bring home Fortner before the inning finally came to a close.

Patterson was able to preserve the shutout with a three-up, three-down inning in the top of the fifth as the Aces secured the win in five innings. 


 

* Aces Student-Athletes To Be Recognized Wednesday

Prior to Wednesday’s University of Evansville softball against Austin Peay, the UE Student Athlete Advisory Committee will be presenting awards to recognize the top teams and top 20 student-athletes for the service to the community.

With the softball game set at 5 p.m., the presentations will take place on the field approximately 20 minutes prior to first pitch.  In a record-setting year for service, Aces student-athletes have accumulated over 3,400 hours of service while helping 105 agencies in the community.

The top two teams that will be recognized for their service are the Aces women’s basketball and women’s golf squads.

“We are very grateful that our program is being recognized for our community service efforts,” head women’s basketball coach Oties Epps said.  “Our staff and our student-athletes understand and value the opportunity we have to give back to our community. We are committed to serving the Evansville community and it will always be an important part of our program.”

Aside from the women’s basketball team, the women’s golf team is also being honored.  Senior and SAAC representative Sydney Skiles commented on the honor.

“As a student athlete, it feels great to give back to our community.  We are able to influence young children through Just Read and donating money to Toys for Tots,” Skiles said.  “We are given so much at the University of Evansville, and it is a great to be involved in the community and make a difference in people's lives.”

Along with the two team honors, twenty student-athletes will be recognized for their service, led by cross country runner Matthew Hamilton, who has accumulated 100 hours of service.  Swimmer Kyle Tiemann has notched 54 hours while Khristian Hart has recorded 50.5.

“We are extremely proud of our student-athletes.  “They have volunteered at over 100 organizations and spent more than 3,400 hours during the academic year contributing to our community,” UE Senior Associate Athletics Director and SWA Sarah Solinsky said.  “The student-athletes find community service a rewarding aspect of their overall experience at UE.”
