Pep and Vim/Reunion Weekend

* FREE Swag for Volunteers - Purple Flags

2023 Reunion T-shirt

On Saturday, April 8, the Alumni and Engagement team will be placing purple flags around campus for Pep and Vim, the UE annual day of giving. One way we express gratitude for UE donors is by planting one flag for every person who has made a gift to the university over the past year. This allows everyone on campus to see the generosity of the UE family and to know there’s an amazingly philanthropic community that continues to empower all Aces.

We need your help planting flags on April 8! We will begin at 10:00 a.m. and we should be finished by noon. Each volunteer will receive a FREE Reunion Weekend t-shirt, and one volunteer will be selected at random to win a premium prize! If you would like to volunteer, please contact

Thank you and GO ACES!

* Let's Talk About Race (Administrators, Faculty, Staff)

The racial issues that have continued to plague our campus have revealed that having meaningful conversations about race is essential to combatting racism. Silence, after all, simply reinforces the status quo. However, we never learn how to talk about race in school or in our homes. If anything, we have learned not to talk about it.

Because talking about race is hard but necessary, CDEI is hosting Talking about Race discussion sessions for UE employees. The purpose of these 90-minute structured sessions is to practice talking about race and racism and to develop skills and understanding that will help participants foster a culture of inclusion on campus.

These conversations will be conducted in small groups, so space is limited. To join a conversation or for more information, please email Dr. Valerie Stein at vs9. Dates (in April) and times will be determined based on participant schedules.

The Menstrual Equity Club will present Jampon- a Jam for Pads and Tampons at the University of Evansville campus on April 2, 2023. Jampon is a one-night-only fundraiser, cabaret, and presentation of art created by UE students that benefits the Evansville YWCA, a domestic violence shelter and outreach program.

The event also seeks to normalize menstruation and raise awareness about period poverty, or, the inability to afford period products. UE students perform music, comedy routines, dance pieces, and other forms of performance art. Art made and donated by students is also available for purchase, with all proceeds going directly to the YWCA.

Jampon will be held in Eykamp Hall at 5 p.m. and will go on until 7 p.m. The cost of admission is one box of period products (ie. pads or tampons), or a monetary donation to the organization via either cash or Venmo. Art and t-shirts made by UE students will be available for purchase, and performances will occur for the entire duration. The performance lineup for this year includes a variety of musical performances as well as standup comedy.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The visiting Southeast Missouri State Redhawks scored five runs in the first inning on just three base hits, and never looked back Wednesday night, as the Redhawks snapped the University of Evansville baseball team’s nine-game winning streak with a 10-4 win at German American Bank Field at Charles H. Braun Stadium in Evansville.

“It is tough to break our win streak at home, but we just didn’t play well enough to win tonight,” said UE head coach Wes Carroll.  “We are looking forward to getting back at it this weekend at home with Valley play.”

The Redhawks loaded the bases in the first inning on three pitches, as UE starter Willard Peterson (0-1) hit the first three batters he faced to open the game.  SEMO third baseman Chance Resetich then followed with a flair single to center field to give the Redhawks a 1-0 lead.

A double to the gap in left-center field by SEMO centerfielder Brett Graber pushed the lead to 3-0, before an RBI ground out and another RBI single by second baseman Caleb Rodgers gave the Redhawks a 5-0 lead.

Evansville would quickly answer back to get one run back, as fifth-year outfielder Eric Roberts blasted the first pitch of the bottom of the first inning over the right-field wall to cut the deficit to 5-1.  Evansville would put the next two men on base via walks, but SEMO starter Ethan Osborne (3-3) got a pop up on the infield and a double-play ground ball to end the threat.

The Redhawks would tack on two more runs on a two-run home run by shortstop Peyton Leeper in the third inning to push the lead to 7-1.  The two teams would trade three runs each over the final three innings to provide the final margin of victory, 10-4, for SEMO.

Leeper led SEMO offensively by going 2-for-5 with a home run and three runs driven in.  Resetich, Graber, and Rodgers all had two-hit evenings as well.  Roberts was one of seven different UE players with hits, and he and junior second baseman Kip Fougerousse each had RBI.  For Roberts, his first inning home run was his Missouri Valley Conference-leading 10th home run of the year.

With the victory, SEMO improves to 13-14 overall.  Evansville, meanwhile, drops to 16-8 overall with the loss and sees its nine-game winning streak come to an end.  The Purple Aces will return home this weekend to battle Missouri Valley Conference newcomer Belmont in a three-game series beginning on Saturday with a 1 p.m. doubleheader.  Saturday’s opener can be seen live on ESPN+ (with the nightcap available on ESPN3), and both games of the twinbill can be heard in the Tri-State area on 107.1 FM-WJPS and the Old National Bank/Purple Aces Sports Network from Learfield.

PAWLEY’S ISLAND, S.C. – Carson Parker recorded a 3-over 75 in the final round of the Golfweek/AGT Intercollegiate to record the top finish of the tournament for the University of Evansville men’s golf team.

Parker’s effort saw him wrap up the 3-round event with a 223 at True Blue Golf Club.  He tied for 47th in the final standings.  Isaac Rohleder and Masatoyo Kato tied for the second-best UE finish in the standings.  Both Purple Aces players wrapped up play with scores of 227 to tie for 68th.  Rohleder matched his second-round total as he carded a 75 in round three.   Kato recorded a 77.  His 71 in Monday’s opening round was the lowest score of the trip to the men.

Caleb Wassmer and Daniil Romashkin both tallied final scores of 229 to tie for the 79th spot.  Wassmerb had a strong final day, recording a 2-over 74.  Romashkin registered a 78 in the third round of 18.  Also tying the duo was Henry Kiel.  Playing as an individual, he improved in each of the three rounds, culminating in an even 72 on Wednesday.  After opening with an 81, he shot a 76 on Tuesday before his final round of 72.

Evansville came home 17th in the final standings.  Troy took top team honors as they wrapped up the tournament with an 840.  Delaware and Connecticut tied for second with scores of 862.  UConn’s Jared nelson was the medalist, finishing at a 207.  Jake Spring of Troy was second with a 208.

The guys will be back on course next week for the Western Illinois Invitational in Macomb, Ill.
