Being a student at the University of Evansville has been an amazing experience. What I like most about the health service administration program is the faculty and staff. They are very helpful and nice, especially as an international student, the extra help is needed. The faculty put so much effort into making a fitting degree plan for their students. The program is also very flexible. For instance, within five years, one can earn both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree. By taking a few extra classes, I could even earn a minor in business.

I like the diversity here at the University of Evansville where I get to learn about so many cultures. There are so many opportunities to make friends and be active, as there are more than 150 student organizations in which any student can join.

Coming to UE has been the best decision I have made in my life so far. Being a sports enthusiast especially in soccer, UE has given me ample opportunities to explore my passion in sports. I am an athletic training major, with a minor in business. As an athletic training major I have been exposed to a variety of different sports as well as NCAA Division I athletes. Now, I get to see what happens on as well as off the sports field.

UE’s intramural sports also gives me a chance to play some of the sports I enjoy and even try out the ones that are new for me. Since I come from a different country, UE has made me feel at home starting day one. I thought it would be difficult at first to fit in, but the second I stepped foot on campus, I haven’t regretted a single moment that I have spent there, and am proud being part of UE.

Attending the University of Evansville has been an amazing experience for me. When I had just joined, it took me sometime to completely adjust, but once I did, my life started to change in ways I never would have imagined. UE has provided countless opportunities for me to grow physically, socially and mentally and I have made sure to seize all opportunities to the best of my knowledge.

My education has been great; I have learned a whole lot in so little time. I changed my major from finance and management to nursing last fall. I knew I wanted to change but I was not sure if it was the right thing to do but I finally took the risk and changed anyway. I loved business but I love nursing a lot more. I love nursing because it is more interpersonal and practical, especially since I have a thirst for helping people and making their lives better. The content and faculty are really great. The faculty ensures that everyone has a holistically abundant experience. There's no doubt that you will get beyond your money's worth from the program. The extra-curricular activities are plentiful and very beneficial. I have served on more than one executive board and I am currently a member of about five organizations. One of my favorite things about my experience here is that the people in Evansville both on and off campus are amazing. They are warm, very welcoming and resourceful. I believe that anyone can succeed here; all it takes is determination and pro-activeness. Know what you want, and make sure you get exactly that.

I could endlessly write about how amazing my university experience here has been but in summary, I honestly would not trade my experience here for the world.

As a freshman at the University of Evansville, I chose to major in exercise science for the opportunity it gives me to pursue a career in physical therapy. Physical therapy is a profession that encompasses all of my interests and provides many benefits. I love the University of Evansville because of the welcoming environment and the friendliness of the people; staff, students and alumni.

My first semester at the University of Evansville was a great experience, I started taking many classes that were related to my major and found them to be extremely interesting and challenging. I experienced some difficulties in one of my classes and the International Students Office and Counseling Department provided me with solutions and all the tools necessary to improve in the class. Courses at a college level are much more demanding than in high school, and this sometimes posed a problem for me. I learned to adapt my study habits from high school to my college level courses. All the help I needed to solve this problem has been provided by the University of Evansville, through different departments, like counseling and academics for example. This has helped me focus more on how I should approach a class and study for it. Supplemental instruction is also available for challenging classes and helped me because it was more individualized, as well as tutors provided by the university for students who are having trouble in certain classes. If you are seeking a degree that relates science to your interests, the University of Evansville is the right place for you.

Making college plans can be cumbersome at times, and sometimes people tend to get mild anxiety when they are in a new environment. The University of Evansville has been home to me for the past three years. I have had a lot of incredible experiences both on and off campus. I am a nursing major and what I like most about the nursing program at UE is that the faculty is dedicated and focused on the success of every student. The classes are small and instructors know students by their names, this really help to promote one on one attention to each student. Through nursing, I work at a local hospital as a student nurse and my experience at the hospital has affected my life positively. I am more conscious of things around me; my knowledge towards healthcare has grown so much. Additionally, the student nurse position has enabled me to apply skills gained in the classroom to real life situations. I also like the fact that students from all majors have an opportunity to study for a semester at Harlaxton College, UE's campus in England. There are a ton of things to do on campus since the University of Evansville has over 160 student organizations and therefore you can enjoy your time on campus. UE is a stepping stone to success; seize the opportunity when it knocks on your door.
