Last week was my birthday and much to my pleasant surprise, my friend Inna from Russia, gave me some lovely Russian dolls as a present. She told me that in Russia, you can buy dolls that look like former and present political leaders. These dolls represent a modern family, as traditional families in Russia had seven members. 

Almost the Weekend!

It has been a crazy busy week for me here at UE!  Somehow it seems, no matter what college you go to, that there is always at least one week of the semester where there is practically something due in every one of your classes.  Well that has been this week for me haha.  I am so ready for a break this weekend!  But, I'll be spending the rest of the day in one of SOBA's beautiful study lounges working on finishing up some papers and projects.  Thankfully I have some great music, a beautiful view, and some apple chai tea to keep me going!

4 Reasons I Chose UE

Who You Choose to Be



"You are destined to become who you choose to be."

This is a quote originally by Ralph Waldo Emerson, who I learned was a poet and lecturer that lived during the 1800's.  However, I heard this quote for the first time tonight by a wonderful speaker at UE.  Kanav Kashyap is an extremely successful graduate of UE who came back to share his experience, knowledge, and advice with current students.  

Get to Know Me - I'm Maddy!

Hey there!  My name is Madison Hendricks, but most of my friends just call me Maddy.  I am a senior here at UE, majoring in Business Management, Finance, and Economics.  Recently I was asked to be an ambassador for the UE Schroeder School of Business, which I am so excited about!  I absolutely love UE, my professors, and the business school as a whole so I can’t wait to share my experiences with you!

Now I must say, Evansville is in fact a small town (especially if you are used to big cities like St. Louis, Indianapolis, Philly, etc.) but it has a special something that other cities cannot offer, let me tell you why.

Thinking Out Loud


So I guess the best thing to do would be to talk a bit about myself to begin with. My name is Oscar Gomez, I am s sophomore international student from El Salvador, but I currently reside in Costa Rica. I am double majoring in Marketing and Business Management and I must be completely honest with you, living in Evansville has been fantastic so far!

Embrace the Ace

Posing as Ace Purple

 Hey everyone- my name is Jenn Pickles and I’m one of the new student bloggers! I have just begun my senior year at the University of Evansville. I am majoring in Elementary Education and minoring in English as a New Language. I am hoping to one day teach abroad, but for now I am enjoying student teaching at a local elementary school. After moving from Toronto, ON to Evansville at a young age, I have grown up loving this city.

It took me 5 hours to cook dinner


Without a meal plan this year, it’s been a learning curve the past few weeks with shopping, budgeting, and then actually preparing meals when I’d really rather not.  However, I can promise you it’s more rewarding than you’d think to prepare a meal yourself and realize your diet will consist of more than cereal and PB&J this semester!  Here’s a super easy crockpot recipe I used the other day; I threw everything together at 2 p.m. right before I left for football practice, came back at 7 p.m. and it was all set to go!

Blogging, budgeting, and back to classes


Classes have started again and truthfully, I was genuinely excited for them to begin this year.  I’ve actually been back on campus since the beginning of August for high school football rotations in the athletic training program.  So for the past three-and-a-half weeks my days were filled with reading, tv watching, and football practices.  It really hit me that classes were a welcome change when I began to get annoyed with being able to identify commercials just by hearing them.
