Info You Should Know

* Evansville Teachers Credit Union ATM

The Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union now has an ATM machine available for all employees and students on the first floor of the William L. Ridgway University Center.  The ATM is located in the hallway by the UE Bookstore entrance.

* Health Tip: Focus on Fruit

Fruits are not only delicious, but also an essential component of a healthy diet! They are full of cancer-fighting antioxidants and have enough fiber to help you stay full on less. Fresh fruit, frozen and canned (without sugar) are beneficial. Dried fruit is nutritious as well but less filling, so be mindful of serving size!

Make fruit part of your routine this week. Add fruit to breakfast, or enjoy it as a mid-day snack or for dessert. If you are already consistently enjoy fruit each day add one more piece to the mix! Not only will you be getting more nutrients, you'll likely have less room for processed snacks.

The wellness nurse will be in Ridgway University Center Lobby on Monday, July 9 from 1-3 p.m.



* Joe Flauto

Professor Emeritus of Theatre Joe Flauto recently opened a production of Pride and Prejudice at the Hope Summer Repertory Theatre in Holland, Michigan.  He designed both the sets and costumes for the production.  Also involved were three UE theatre alumns and seven current UE theatre students, several of whom he worked with closely.
