Intramurals (IMs) are very popular here at UE and there are so many options there's bound to be one you can get involved in!  Most colleges offer intramurals, and here at UE you can bet you'll be able to make or join a team in whatever sport and competitive level you want.  Some of the sports offered include flag football, sand and indoor volleyball, basketball, and ultimate frisbee!  What about badminton, Euchre, dodgeball, futsol, and racquetball?  Got it, have it, yes, you betcha, and you should try it!  

Prioritize Your Life!

If I haven't told y'all before, I love basketball. I love playing basketball, I love watching basketball, and late at night when I'm in bed, I'm typically thinking about basketball (or cake). I think one of the reasons I think I love basketball so much is because I had an awesome coach in high school. He is a man I have a great amount of respect for, and he taught me about way more than basketball.

Sneak Peek: UE Athletic Training Education Program

 

As a sophomore in the athletic training education program (ATEP) we have about six rotations throughout the school year, four rotations are six weeks long, one is four weeks long, and the other four week rotation is off!  Currently I'm with my second rotation and am assigned to men's soccer.  Here's a peek at what it's like to be at both a practice and then game day...enjoy!

Top 6 Things I Miss about High School

 

When I first considered what I miss about high school, I thought my list would be longer than six points.  I thought, life was so much easier back then!  Less to do, more free time, less pressure . . . life was good.  Upon further reflection, I realized that I don’t miss as much of high school as I thought.  College is pretty fabulous.  I don’t have to wake up at 6:30 every morning, I get to enjoy the independence of living on my own, I have less class time—albeit more homework—and my weeks are full of exciting and fun educational and (sometimes) recreational activities.  However, there are a few things (6, in my opinion) that make me wish—for about .2 seconds—that I were back in high school.   

The Truth About Fall Festival

Last week marked the single most important event in Evansville during the course of a year: Fall Festival. 

Secret Time: Part 1

 

I'm a pretty open person, so I thought I would let you in on a major secret about college.

Drum Circles and Bingo

 
Musical Bingo participants!

What do drum circles and bingo have in common?  Why, the answer is simple:  they were both events at UE’s Family Weekend!  The UE Music Therapy Association hosts musical bingo each year, and this year, we added a drum circle.  I also played in the annual Family Weekend concert and led the music at Catholic Mass that weekend.  The hard work of preparing for this weekend always pays off, and once again, the weekend was a great success.

How Not To Lose Your Mind During Midterms (Or Ever)

 

It's hard to believe we're already halfway there, and yet here we are: midterms. While I certainly don't have the MOST demanding midterm schedule ever (one exam and one essay), it's still a balancing act between working two jobs, my internship, classes, and of course making time to eat and sleep. Whether your time is being sucked up just by school work or a lovely cocktail of things, here are a few of the ways that always work when I need to stay sane.

Here comes the...

 

Sun?  No.  Boom?  Well, closer.  Here comes the rain is what you'll get used to here in Evansville.  Today was the first big storm this school year, so boom went the thunder.  Students across campus broke out the umbrellas, rain jackets, rain boots, or broke into a sprint if you were me today.    

Hitting the Ground Running

 
The set! (in process

Hey there everybody! My name is Alex Raby and I’m a senior Theatre Performance major from Indianapolis, Indiana. I’m super excited to be back for my last year here, much of which will entail me applying to graduate school, but hopefully a good majority of it will be spent making the most of my last two semesters at UE.
