Upcoming Events

* Annual Chili Bowl Sale Planned for October 20

The annual Chili Bowl Sale at the University of Evansville, hosted by the UE Clay Club and Department of Art, is planned for October 20 from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. The event will be set up on the East Terrace Lawn, outside of Ridgeway University Center, on UE’s campus. The rain location for the event is Eykamp Hall, Ridgway University Center.

The UE Clay Club will be partnering with Chartwells again this year for the chili. It has been a hit in the previous years.

For $10, customers can buy a one-of-a-kind ceramic bowl and fill it with chili. Lidded containers will be available for those who prefer not to put chili in their newly purchased bowls.

Larger bowls ranging from $15-$100 will also be for sale during the event.

The bowls are being made this year by members of the UE Clay Club, faculty, alumni, and community members.

Part of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to a local food organization to assist with fighting hunger. The rest will go to the UE Clay Club to be used to fund attendance at conferences, visiting artists, and studio/gallery visits.

* University of Evansville Theatre Presents MEASURE FOR MEASURE

The University of Evansville Theatre opens their fall 2022 season with William Shakespeare’s MEASURE FOR MEASURE, in a modern verse translation by Aditi Brennan Kapil, in an ongoing collaboration with Play On! Shakespeare. Being presented on the UE campus for the first time ever, this production opens at 7:30 pm, Friday, September 30, in Shanklin Theatre. Additional performances are at 7:30 p.m., on October 1, 6, 14, 15, and at 2:00 p.m., on October 16. This 400-year-old tale could be “ripped from the headlines” of today’s world, as it examines themes central to human nature and our paradoxical relationship to justice and mercy. With all its high-spirited bawdiness, this tragicomedy reveals what can happen when sex, religion, and politics collide.

MEASURE FOR MEASURE is directed by Visiting Assistant Professor Stacey Yen. Rebecca Conaway, a senior theatre studies major from Wellsburg W. Va., serves as the associate director; Associate Professor Eric Renschler ’83, serves as the scenic designer; Assistant Professor Sarah J. Smith is the costume designer; Jamey Pearson, a junior design and technology major from Moody, Texas, is the lighting designer; Maya Barry, a sophomore stage management major from Marietta, Ga., serves as the sound designer; Devyn Jolgren, a junior performance major from Louisville, Ky., is the dramaturg; Zoe Paraskevopoulos, a senior stage management major from Flower Mound, Texas, is the stage manager, and Assistant Professor Mitchell L. Critel serves as the technical director.

The cast features McAllister Reed Stowell, a senior performance major from Lakewood, Colo., as Duke; Tatiana Robledo, a junior performance major from Houston, Texas, as Escalus; Adam Techmanski, a sophomore performance major from Richmond, Texas, as Angelo; Delaney Ross, a sophomore performance major from Keller, Texas, as Isabella; Alijah Roberson, a first-year performance major from Atlanta, Ga., as Claudio; Aibhlinn Rose, a senior performance major from Clackamas, Ore., as Juliet; Garrett Hale, a junior performance major from Haslet, Texas, as Lucio; Jacovia Young, a first-year performance major from Houston, Texas, as Provost; Sarah Tuma, a sophomore performance major from Henderson, Ky., as Mariana; Christina Tinde Jesenski, a junior performance major from Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., as Mistress Overdone; Jeff Parkinson, a senior performance major from Mercer Island, Wash., as Pompey; Jack Cory, a senior performance major from Southlake, Texas, as Elbow; Antonio Corte?s Roma?n, a first-year performance major from Metepec, Mexico, as Froth; Drake J. Susuras, a junior performance major from Broomfield, Colo., as Friar Thomas; Umbra Person, a first-year performance major from Jonesboro, Ga., as Francisca; Gavin Ramirez, a first-year performance major from McKinney, Texas, as Abhorson; Benjamin Bravard, a senior performance major from Batavia, Ohio, as Barnardine; J. Kenneth Guzman, a first-year performance major from Brighton, Colo., as First Gentleman; Hauson Anderson, a first-year performance major from Columbia, Md., as Second Gentleman; Trace Levens, a first-year performance major from Bryan, Texas, as Officer; Josie Madzik, a first-year theatre studies major from Howell, Mich., as Officer; Arturo Quepons, a first-year performance major from San Antonio, Texas, as Duke’s Attendant; Andrea Vargas, a first-year performance major from Missouri City, Texas, as Duke’s Attendant; and William Cooper Sanders, a first-year performance major from Jeffersonville, Ind., as Angelo’s Attendant.

In following industry standards, as established by the Broadway League, all audience members must remain masked during the performance. It is our hope that these restrictions will allow our student actors to safely perform unmasked.

Adult ticket prices are $20 and $18 for senior adults, UE employees, and non-UE students. UE students may obtain one free student rush ticket beginning at 12 p.m. on the day of the performance they wish to attend. In addition, UE Theatre is excited to introduce a new “Pay What You Can” initiative. Every Thursday evening performance in Shanklin Theatre is available for any person to pay any price that best fits their budget.

Season subscriptions for the 2022–2023 Shanklin Theatre season are also available and are $50 for an adult subscription and $44 for a discount subscription. This three-play season includes MEASURE FOR MEASURE, the smash–hit musical CABARET, and the hilarious NOISES OFF. A May Studio Theatre Discovery Package can be purchased for $18 and includes CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION and THE MOORS. Subscriptions may be purchased by calling the ticket office at 812.488.2031, Monday through Friday, 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. Single tickets may be purchased online at or by calling the ticket office at 812.488.2031.

Info You Should Know

* Athletic Training Adds Performing Arts to Clinical Site Opportunities

The Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program at UE has added Mercy Health Hospital in Cincinnati as a new site for immersive clinical education. With this location, students in the program now have the opportunity to work in a performing arts environment with the Cincinnati Ballet. The rotation is already available for students completing clinicals this fall, and it will continue into the coming semesters.

Adding Mercy Health Hospital will provide a new avenue for clinical rotations, as MSAT students haven’t previously been able to work with performing arts.

In addition to Mercy Health Hospital in Cincinnati, UE also has partnerships with other universities and organizations across the nation. Current locations include Kentucky Wesleyan College, Louisville City Football Club, Northwestern University, University of Florida, Vanderbilt University, and Western Kentucky University. Classes can be completed online, so there are no geographic restrictions when it comes to a student’s rotations.

* Spring Housing Cancellation Deadline

The deadline for students to cancel their UE housing contract for the spring semester is October 5. Students can cancel a UE housing contract without penalty for the spring semester if you will be:

  • Attending Harlaxton or studying abroad (if already approved for Harlaxton or study abroad, you do not need to do anything to cancel your housing for the spring semester)
  • In an internship, co-op, or clinical outside of the Evansville area
  • Moving into a fraternity house (for the spring semester)
  • Transferring, withdrawing, or graduating

Requests not falling in the above categories are typically not granted. Requests to move off campus to live with friends or move into an apartment are not sufficient reasons to cancel a UE housing contract. Entering into any other housing agreement or lease with a private landlord will have no effect upon the conditions of your contract with the University of Evansville.

Housing Cancellation forms are available on our website at -

For more information, please contact the Office of Residence Life.

* Giulia Cardona named MVC Player of the Week

Capping off a weekend that saw her team match its best Missouri Valley Conference start since 2000, University of Evansville sophomore Giulia Cardona was named the MVC Player of the Week on Monday.

Finishing with an average of 5.13 kills per set, Cardona led the Purple Aces volleyball team to its first 2-0 conference start since 2000.  Cardona recorded a total of 41 kills while hitting an efficient .275.  She added 2.00 digs, 0.50 aces and 0.38 assists per set. 

Friday’s league opener saw her post 18 kills, 8 digs and 2 aces.  Hitting .333, her 18 kills came in 45 attempts with just three errors.  Cardona picked up a block assist and assist in the win.  Saturday’s win over Bradley saw Cardona match her career high with 23 kills.  Her other 23-kill effort also came against Bradley in the 2021 NIVC.  She added 8 digs, 2 aces and 2 assists.

This marks the second Player of the Week accolade for Cardona, who earned the nod on October 18, 2021.  Next up for Cardona and the Aces is a weekend road swing that includes stops at Belmont and Murray State.
