* Important University Logo Information

The Office of Marketing would like to remind the campus community of some guidelines regarding the University of Evansville and Purple Aces logos. If your department or student organization is using a University-related logo in any materials (print, digital, or swag), please review the important guidelines below.

  • If you are making a logo for your department or organization and it will include the UE, Aces, or Ace Purple logos, it must be designed or approved by Marketing.
  • All University-related logos must be sent through the Office of Marketing for approval.
  • All logos must follow UE brand guidelines, which are outlined on our area’s webpage. See pages 28-39 of the brand guidelines document for full details.

  • If you are seeking a temporary change to the University’s logos for a specific holiday or cause, approval must be obtained from the Director of Marketing in advance.

As a reminder, the Office of Marketing webpage serves as a toolbox for helpful brand information and assets. This includes our logos in JPG and PNG format, font info and links, the University’s color palette, style guide (for writing), Zoom backgrounds, email signature and PowerPoint templates, and more.

* UE Professor Presents Keynote at National Conference

University of Evansville professor Dr. Cindy Crowe was selected to present the keynote speech along with Emory University professor Dr. Yun Kim at the 2024 Phi Sigma Iota Conference in February.

Phi Sigma Iota, founded in 1922, is the International Foreign Language Honor Society and the highest academic honor in the field of foreign languages. UE's Epsilon Beta Chapter was installed on April 8, 2000.

Dr. Kim, Associate Professor of Linguistics at Emory, presented her research on the neurological and cognitive benefits of multilingualism. Dr. Crowe, Assistant Professor of Spanish, presented from her research on the individual and societal advantages of foreign language learning, factors that influence students’ choice of major, and initiatives to strengthen world language programs.

“It was a privilege to speak on the importance of language study to an audience comprised of university foreign language professors and students," said Dr. Crowe. "I am hopeful that some of the research I shared might be useful as we collectively strive to enhance our world language programs at a time when the challenges of our contemporary global society necessitate an understanding of languages and cultures.”

“To meet these global challenges, we strongly encourage our UE students to continue their foreign language studies past the required level so they may obtain all the benefits of language study and connect with cultures other than their own in order to build bridges and intercultural harmony."

* UE Professor Publishes Biographical Website

Clark Kimberling, professor of mathematics, recently published "Josephine Mirabella Elliott: Historian, Librarian, Teacher." The subject was well known for her research and publications pertaining to historic New Harmony, located about 25 miles west of Evansville. For example, in 1994, the Indiana Historical Society published her 1200-page book Partners for Posterity.  Before her death in 2002, she and her work were featured in Evansville and Posey County newspapers. Born to Italian parents in Chicago in 1912, she attended the University of Chicago High School and received two degrees from the University itself.  There she met and eventually married John Elliott, who was an archaeologist before World War II, after which he inherited a farm in New Harmony and became a civic leader in both New Harmony and Evansville. The website is based largely on extensive correspondence between Josephine and John during 1931-1945, now archived in the famous Working Men's Institute Library in New Harmony, where Josephine worked for many years. Replete with photos from as early as 1925, the website can be accessed here:

* Santos Lopez Breaks UE 50 Free Record At MAC Swimming & Diving Championships

University of Evansville junior Daniel Santos Lopez (Madrid, Spain) broke the school’s 50-Yard Freestyle record on Thursday night in the “A Final” at the 2024 Mid-American Conference Swimming & Diving Championships at Dr. Edward J. Shea Natatorium in Carbondale, Illinois.

Santos Lopez trimmed 0.07 seconds off the 50 Free record at UE by posting a finals time of 20.25 seconds.  He placed sixth overall in a very fast final race, as the five men ahead of him all broke the 20-second barrier.  It marks the second UE school record that Santos Lopez has broken at this week’s MAC Championships, as he was a part of the 200-Yard Medley Relay team which set a school record on Wednesday.

Santos Lopez’s performance highlighted a strong day in the pool for the Purple Aces.  In the 200-Yard IM, freshman Omar Hassan (Doha, Qatar) advanced to the B Final by posting the second-fastest 200 IM time in school history with a time of 1:50.82 in the preliminary round.  He placed 16th overall in the MAC after posting a finals time of 1:51.28 on Thursday night.

Senior Jackson Caudill (Mount Sterling, Ky./Montgomery County) also advanced to Thursday night’s B Final in the 500-Yard Freestyle with a prelims time of 4:34.38, before posting a finals time of 4:35.53 to place 16th as well.  Junior Patrik Vilbergsson (Kopavogur, Iceland) keyed UE’s 400-Yard Medley Relay team to a time of 3:15.92 by posting the second-fastest 100-Yard Backstroke time on record at UE with a lead-split of 48.55.  It falls just 0.11 seconds shy of Credence Pattinson’s school-record time of 48.44, set in 2018.

In the men’s one-meter diving competition, sophomore Levi McKinney (Boonville, Ind./Boonville) placed 12th overall with a final round score of 249.00.

As a team, the Purple Aces find themselves in sixth place, just behind Ball State.  Miami of Ohio currently leads the MAC Championships after two days.

The MAC Championships continue on Friday, with action in the 100-Yard Butterfly, the 400 IM, the 200-Yard Freestyle, the 100-Yard Backstroke and Breaststroke events, as well as the 400-Yard Freestyle Relay.  Preliminary round action of the three-meter diving competition will also take place.  Preliminary round swimming action will begin at 10:30 a.m., with diving taking place at 1 p.m. and final-round swims beginning at 6 p.m.

* Short-handed UE women's basketball loses to Drake

With only seven active players, the University of Evansville women’s basketball team faced a battle in an 86-53 loss to the Drake Bulldogs.

Three Purple Aces ended Thursday evening’s game in double-figures while center Barbora Tomancova had her fifth double-double of the season. But it wouldn’t be enough for UE to get past the regular season champion Drake Bulldogs in the 33-point loss. Evansville did have a strong defensive game despite the score with 38 rebounds, three blocks, and drawing nine fouls.

Both teams had a tough offensive outing in the first quarter. A shot was made for each team in the first two minutes, but it was Drake who took the early lead on an eight-point run. A three-point play by forward Nevaeh Thomas got UE’s offense back into the game. The Bulldogs responded with two field goals to quickly make it a double-digit deficit. Evansville headed into the second quarter down by 11 as neither team could score in the final three and a half minutes of the first.

The Aces had a similar start to the second, not making a basket until it was past the two-minute mark. UE began to make it a back-and-forth game with just under six minutes to go in the half after Drake pulled out to a 21-point lead. Evansville’s best scoring runs came in the second with back-to-back layups. It was the last run of the half for either team as both again struggled to make shots in the final minutes of the second. Thomas had a second three-point stretch in the final minute of the first half. But a last-second three made by the Bulldogs still had the Aces down by 18.

In contrast to the first half, UE’s offense had the first bucket of the second as Thomas made another layup. But Evansville had a two-minute cold spell following that was broken by guard Kynidi Mason Striverson in the paint. Drake responded with another quick run that was stopped when Tomancova drew a foul and split her free throws. The Aces had another four-point run as guard Sydney Bradley had back-to-back jump shots. The final five minutes of the third quarter were mostly back-and-forth baskets until the final minute when the Bulldogs made two layups to keep UE down by 24 going into the fourth.

The shot-for-shot pace continued to start the third quarter. But Drake pulled away as guard Katie Dinnebier made four straight shots. Mason Striverson ended the streak with her third three of the game. The three sparked a rash of treys for the Bulldogs, forcing an Evansville timeout with six minutes to go. It took almost two minutes out of the timeout for either team to score, but the Aces broke through as Bradley made only her second three of the season. But a six-point run for Drake gave UE its largest deficit of the game at 37. Evansville found three more layups in the final two and a half minutes ending the 86-53 loss.

Thomas led the Aces on offense with 14 points while Mason Striverson was right behind with 13. Tomancova also finished the game in double-digits with 11 while leading UE in rebounds with 10 boards after a month away from the court. Freshman guard Sydney Bradley also set a career-high against the Bulldogs, scoring seven points in 26 minutes of action.

Evansville’s final game of the season is set for Saturday afternoon against the Northern Iowa Panthers. The Aces will celebrate their two senior players, Tomancova and guard Lexie Sinclair before the regular season finale. Tip-off for UE against the Panthers on March 9 is set for 2 p.m.

Evansville will bring a 7-5 overall record into this weekend’s series after winning three out of four games against Purdue Fort Wayne over the weekend.  The UE offense has started the season on fire, as the Purple Aces rank among the NCAA’s top 15 in five major offensive categories entering the weekend:  doubles (2nd-41), hits (6th-152), batting average (9th-.345), on-base percentage (13th-.454) and scoring (13th-10.4 runs per game).  Graduate outfielder Mark Shallenberger currently leads the UE offense and the Missouri Valley Conference with a .447 batting average, and will ride an 11-game hitting streak into Friday’s series opener.  Senior shortstop Simon Scherry (.405) and junior second baseman Cal McGinnis (.404) also both hit above .400 on the season for UE.

Mississippi State will bring a 9-4 overall record into the series after rallying past Southern Miss, 5-4, on Tuesday.  The Bulldogs have won six-straight games, and Mississippi State has done it with power pitching.  MSU ranks 32nd nationally in team earned run average at 3.76, and the Bulldogs rank 11th nationally in strikeouts per nine innings (12.0) and fourth in strikeout-to-walk ratio (4.03), as they have racked up 153 strikeouts against just 38 walks in 13 games.

The series is scheduled to start on Friday at 6 p.m., although rain is forecast for the Starkville area all day on Friday.  It will continue on Saturday at 4 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m. with single contests.  UE will send senior RHP Nick Smith (0-1, 8.71 ERA) to the mound in the opener.  He is expected to be opposed by MSU junior RHP Nate Dohm (2-0, 1.02 ERA).  This series will mark the first ever meetings between UE and Mississippi State in baseball.

* Aces advance with 59-53 win over Illinois State

Leading from start to finish, the University of Evansville men’s basketball team earned a 59-53 Arch Madness win over Illinois State inside the Enterprise Center.  With the victory, the Purple Aces will face the #2 seed Drake on Friday evening at 6 p.m.

“As the game went on, Illinois State did not go away.  It was a hard-fought game for 40 minutes.  Proud of these guys for sticking together and finding a way.  We did a lot of good things today to come out on top,” UE head men’s basketball coach David Ragland exclaimed.  “This is the same team that started 6-0, the same special group that tripled our win total from last season and we made a decision as a group to have a ton of pride and play this game with no regrets.”

“The way we dove on the floor and got those 50/50 ball shows that we came here to win.”

Ben Humrichous was the leading scorer for UE, totaling 15 points and 11 boards.  Yacine Toumi registered 10 points and 8 caroms while Antonio Thomas registered 9 points and Gage Bobe had 8.  Myles Foster was the leading scorer for Illinois State, posting 18 points.

Bobe knocked down a triple to open the scoring while Yacine Toumi followed with a basket to put UE up 5-0.  Illinois State registered the next three points and hung around a possession with the score sitting at 13-11 just past the midway point of the opening half.

Following two Ben Humrichous free throws, Bobe converted from downtown for the second time to put Evansville in front by an 18-11 margin.  With 2:30 remaining in the half, Cam Haffner gave the Aces their largest advantage of the half at 22-13.  ISU closed the gap over the final moments, cutting the UE lead to 25-21 at the break.

Antonio Thomas drained a triple to open the second-half to push the advantage to 28-21.  Five in a row from the Redbirds got them right back within a possession.  Humrichous converted his first triple to push the lead back to seven points before his putback gave the Aces a 37-27 lead with 13:16 left in the game.

Over the course of less than two minutes, Illinois State stormed back with seven in a row to cut the deficit to 37-34.  Evansville countered with a 7-0 run of its own, holding ISU to five consecutive misses while taking a 44-34 edge.  Humrichous had five during the run and would later add his third 3-pointer to make it a 47-36 game with under seven minutes remaining.

Another run by ISU saw them reel off eight in a row as they got back within three before cutting the gap to just a pair a few times, including the final minute.  Three free throws in a row by Tanner Cuff and a pair from Thomas would seal the UE victory.

* UE Men Break 200 Medley Relay Record To Open MAC Swimming & Diving Championships

Despite having to run the race twice, the University of Evansville men’s swimming and diving team broke the 200-Yard Medley Relay record on Wednesday night to open competition at the 2024 Mid-American Conference Swimming & Diving Championships at Dr. Edward J. Shea Natatorium in Carbondale, Illinois.

After a problem with the touchpads forced the race to be conducted twice, the quartet of juniors Patrik Vilbergsson (Kopavogur, Iceland), Carlos Souto Vilas (A Coruna, Spain), and Daniel Santos Lopez (Madrid, Spain) and sophomore Daniil Goncharuk (Kyiv, Ukraine) posted a time of 1:28.38 to edge the previous school mark set at last year’s MAC Championships by 0.03 seconds.

“What a tremendous start to the championships,” said UE head coach Stuart Wilson.  “The guys really stayed focused on the task at hand, and went out and ran a great race.  I am proud of them.”

* Marah Wood's 2-run home run leads UE to win over Lindenwood

With her team trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the 6th inning of the finale in Wednesday’s doubleheader against Lindenwood, Marah Wood launched a 2-run home run to give the University of Evansville softball team a 2-1 victory.  The Purple Aces split Wednesday’s doubleheader against the Lions at Tri-State Orthopaedics Field at James and Dorothy Cooper Stadium.

Game 1 – Lindenwood 5, UE 3

After scoring a single run in the second, Lindenwood added two in the third and another pair of runs in the fourth to open a 5-0 lead.  In the bottom of the fourth, Evansville got on the board,  Following a leadoff walk by Jess Willsey, Marah Wood singled to set the table for Hannah Hood.  The Newburgh, Ind. native came through with a double down the left field line to score Willsey.

Three quick outs ended the threat but the Aces once again put together a rally in the seventh.  Taylor Howe recorded a 1-out double to score Brooke Voss, who reached on a walk.  Dori Brown came in to pinch run for Howe and crossed the plate on an error by the Lions catcher.  Despite the late comeback attempt, the efforts for the Aces came up just short as they dropped a 5-3 decision.

Mikayla Jolly took the loss, throwing the entire 7-inning contest.  She allowed five runs, four earned, on seven hits.  Lindenwood pitcher Amanda Weyh also went the distance, giving up three runs, two being earned, on five hits.  Weyh was also the top offensive performer for her squad, going 2-3 with two RBI and a run scored.

Game 2 – UE 2, Lindenwood 1

Pitching was the name of the game in the second game of the doubleheader and it was one pitch that would make the difference.  Lindenwood struck first with a single run in the top of the third and would hold that edge until the bottom of the sixth.

Evansville was held to two hits through the first five innings, but the third hit of the day proved to be the biggest of the season.  Hannah Hood reached on a walk before Marah Wood stepped to the plate.  She launched the first pitch she saw over the left field wall to put the Aces up by a 2-1 score.

The Lions did their best to even the score in the top half of the 7th, but UE starter Megan Brenton shut the door to give UE the win.  Brenton earned the win, throwing the entire 7-inning game while giving up just one run on six hits.  Wood recorded two out of UE’s three hits in the contest.  This weekend, the Aces play their final non-conference tournament before opening up the Missouri Valley Conference slate next week.
