What's Happening Today

* Wellness Nurse on Campus Today

The wellness nurse will be in the Schroeder Family School of Business Administration Building lobby on Monday, July 16, from 1 - 3 p.m.

There are many reasons why weight and fitness habits fluctuate including environment, family history, genetics, metabolism and personal habits. While it's impossible to change some of these factors, you can identify and take responsibility for those within your control.

Think about your daily choices and routines. Is there time for more physical activity, a snack you could replace with something healthier, or a way to remove temptation from your environment?  Even simple actions like exchanging French fries for fruit or taking the stairs instead of the elevator add benefit to your health.



Upcoming Events

* Attention Faculty and Staff: Move In Day Greeters Needed!

We are just a few weeks away from welcoming a new class of students to UE. Your help on this day to provide a welcoming environment for our new students is critical. As in years past, we are looking for faculty and staff volunteers to assist with helping as greeters during our move-In process. Our student volunteers who signed up in the spring will help move students into their rooms while faculty and staff volunteers will serve as greeters to students and their families and assist in coordinating and communicating the move-in process. Training will be provided and no previous experience is necessary.

Move-in Day is Saturday, August 18. There are three two-hour shifts to choose from. Please use the link provided to list yourself in a preferred timeslot. You will receive a confirmation email with more details after you register. For any questions please contact Geoff Edwards at

* Family and Friends of Larry Colter

Dr. Larry Colter, longtime professor of philosophy at the University, died this past Tuesday, July 10 , in Bozeman, Montana where he had been living for the past several months. After a distinguished career at Illinois Wesleyan, where he served in the Department of Philosophy from 1966-1995 and as director of the Division of Humanities, Larry joined the University of Evansville Community as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences from 1995-2001. He later returned to his first love, teaching philosophy, and served as Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion from 2001-2007 and as professor of philosophy from 2001 to his retirement this past year. Larry was widely published in ethics, the philosophy of language and especially philosophy of mind. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that friends make a contribution to the scholarship fund set up at The University of Evansville in his and his wife Pat’s name. Pat, also a longtime member of the University and Evansville communities, died two years ago. They will both be sorely missed.

The service will be held in Bozeman this Saturday. Reminiscences may be sent to Larry’s daughter, Theresa Thielemen, at her email address:
