* Upcoming Road Closure at Walnut and Weinbach

Beginning on or after September 26, the intersection of Walnut and Weinbach will be completely closed as part of the City of Evansville's Refresh project. The closure is expected to last for 30 to 45 days due to potential complications with the water force main connection. Work will not take place on holidays or weekends and the timing could also be impacted by weather.

Construction Work: The construction work will involve a complete rebuild of the intersection. This includes the connection of a new force water main, installation of storm sewers, updating traffic signals, creating ADA-compliant curbs, and constructing a concrete intersection.

Parking Changes: Parking in lot Q will be restricted to the south spaces near the curb along the Townhouses. All middle and north side spaces will be closed off, and orange barrels will be placed to facilitate safe delivery vehicle access to Central Receiving.

Parking Enforcement: We want to emphasize that the restrictions will be strictly enforced. Towing will only occur if a parked car creates a critical safety issue or blocks other vehicles from using the designated route. Our goal is to ensure safety and minimize disruptions during the construction period without unnecessary towing.

Traffic Flow: Signage will be placed at the entrance to the lot, directing traffic to make a right turn into the lot using the north lane. Additionally, signage on Walnut west of Rotherwood will indicate "No Thru Traffic Allowed." A barricade will be placed in the straight eastbound lane at the Rotherwood/Walnut intersection. Delivery vehicles will have a route around the barricade using the left turn lane.

Median Turnaround: Bollards on Walnut between Ridgway and Carson Center will be removed by Facilities to allow a turnaround in the median for delivery vehicles to exit through the westbound lane of Walnut. A stop sign will be placed at the turnaround to control the traffic entering the westbound lane.

Walking Safety Tips: Be predictable and ensure you follow the rules of the road and obey signs and signals and plan to walk on sidewalks whenever they are available. If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic and as far from traffic as possible. Keep alert at all times; don’t be distracted by electronic devices that take your eyes (and ears) off the road. Whenever possible, cross streets at crosswalks or intersections, where drivers expect pedestrians. Look for cars in all directions, including those turning left or right. If a crosswalk or intersection is not available, locate a well-lit area where you have the best view of traffic. Wait for a gap in traffic that allows enough time to cross safely; continue watching for traffic as you cross. Never assume a driver sees you. Make eye contact with drivers as they approach to make sure you are seen. Be visible at all times by wearing bright clothing during the day and wear reflective materials or use a flashlight at night. Watch for cars entering or exiting driveways or backing up in parking lots. Avoid alcohol and drugs when walking; they impair your abilities and your judgment.

Alternative Parking for Team Buses: Team buses can use Lot H or Lot O during this time.

* Join us to Celebrate 20 Years of Tin City

The Tin City Archaeological Project turns 20 this year.  Join us to celebrate the only on-going campus excavation in the nation.  Students will be offering tours of the trenches in front of Neu Chapel and a variety of hands-on, family-friendly activities for archaeologists of all ages in the SOBA Atrium.  Tin City was a housing complex reserved for married veterans of World War II and the Korean War attending UE on the GI Bill.  Little was written about the complex, the veterans, or their families, so student excavators have been rediscovering a lost chapter in the history of the university.

The celebration will be between 10 am and 1 pm on Saturday, September 23.  At 12:30 we will be cutting a cake and giving away a free, limited-edition Tin City hoodie in the SOBA Atrium.

Thank you for your leadership in demonstrating this generosity.

New this year is an online workflow payroll deduction form, located at Hover over the Advancement tab and select Giving Deduction to complete your payroll deduction selection. After submission, you will receive an email once it is processed by Payroll and University Advancement.

You have a special view of how philanthropy affects the university in diverse ways. We encourage you to choose how your support will make an impact inside the university. Your support has the power to shape lives, drive innovation, and build a stronger campus.

One benefit of becoming a President’s Club member is receiving a campus parking hangtag which allows you to park anywhere on campus (except for the Admissions’ purple parking in front oval and handicap spots).

* Vasquez's Goal Helps UE Women's Soccer Draw Valparaiso, 1-1

University of Evansville sophomore forward Chrysta Vasquez’s fifth-minute goal helped the homestanding Purple Aces to a 1-1 draw against defending Missouri Valley Conference regular-season champion Valparaiso on Thursday night at UE’s Arad McCutchan Stadium.

Off a corner kick, Vasquez (Las Vegas, Nev./Coronado) gathered in a loose ball on top of the six-yard box and buried it into the back of the net for her first collegiate goal to give UE a 1-0 lead in the fifth minute.  UE would maintain the lead for the next 30-plus minutes, until Valparaiso was able to equalize on a corner kick of its own on a header by Chase Ray in the 37th minute.

In the second half, both offenses opened up, but both goalkeepers were up to the task to keep the scoreline tied 1-1.  In the 69th minute, it was Valpo’s Nikki Coryell coming up with the big save, as she stopped UE freshman forward Taylor Johnson’s (Evansville, Ind./Reitz) shot attempt on a breakaway to keep the match tied at one.  Then, in the 83rd minute, it was UE senior goalkeeper Myia Danek (Laingsburg, Mich./Laingsburg) playing the hero, as she stopped Valpo’s Aubrey Ramey on a breakaway attempt to keep the match level.

Johnson led UE’s offensive attack with a pair of shots on the night, while three different Valparaiso players fired two shots each.  

With the draw, Evansville sees its record go to 0-3-5 overall and 0-0-2 in the MVC.  Valparaiso, meanwhile, moves to 4-2-3 overall and 0-0-1 in the Valley.  Evansville will now hit the road for a pair of MVC matches, beginning on Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. when UE travels to Murray, Kentucky to take on the Murray State Racers.  Sunday’s match can be seen live on ESPN+.

* UE Women's Soccer Hosts Valparaiso Thursday On "Girl Scout Night"

The University of Evansville women’s soccer team will return home briefly on Thursday night to host reigning Missouri Valley Conference regular-season champion Valparaiso on “Girl Scout Night at UE.”  Kick-off is set for 6 p.m. and anyone involved in the Girl Scouts of Southwest Indiana can get $3.00 tickets, with the chance of purchasing special scout patches for just $2.00.

For Evansville, Thursday’s match will be the only home match in UE’s first four Valley games, as the Purple Aces opened MVC play last Friday with a 1-1 draw at Illinois State.  Sophomore forward Amy Velazquez (Avon, Ind./Avon) scored her first career goal in the 82nd minute last Friday, and the UE defense limited Illinois State to just four shots on goal to earn the draw.  Defense has been UE’s calling card so far this year, as the Purple Aces have surrendered just seven goals through the first seven matches, and they have limited the opposition to just a 37.6 percent shot accuracy so far.

Valparaiso will play its first Valley match of the year on Thursday night, after going 4-2-2 in non-conference play.  Junior forward Addy Joiner currently leads the Beacons’ attack with five goals, as she ranks second in the MVC in goals scored.  Joiner earned first-team all-MVC honors a year ago at striker, and she helped Valparaiso earn the regular-season Valley crown with a league-best seven regular-season goals.

All-time, Evansville leads the series 11-5-4 over Valparaiso.  All-time in MVC play, UE leads the series 6-3-2.  Evansville and Valparaiso have played just twice in Evansville since the Beacons returned to the MVC in the sport of women’s soccer in 2017, with the Purple Aces posting a 1-0 win in 2018 and the two teams playing to a 0-0 draw in the COVID spring season of 2021.  Valparaiso has not won in Evansville since the 2004 season.

Thursday’s match can be seen live on ESPN+.

- On the defensive side, Ruff set a new career mark with 18 digs against North Alabama and is 19th in the league with 2.63 per set
