Evansville...one-of-a-kind community

 

Now I didn't choose to attend UE because of the weather...if I had I'd be in warm and sunny place like Texas.  I didn't choose UE because of the bustling city - seeing as I'm from the Chicago suburbs - Evansville doesn't quite compare.  I chose UE because of the academic programs offered and the opportunities for career preparation.

Fall is my favorite season and in my opinion the best time to be at UE. Here are few things that college students can do (budget friendly) to enjoy it!

Life with Cable

 

Back home I don't have cable, but here at school I enjoy the wonderful distraction of cable tv.  As much as I probably complained about not having cable as a kid, I've begun to go back on that opinion after having cable here at school.  Yes, it's possible I'm the one weirdo that doesn't want cable, but then again I think I've got a few solid reasons:
