When I first arrived at UE, it was also my first time in the USA and I did not know what to expect. What I found was an active, cheerful and diverse campus, both nationally and internationally, with students from all over the US and the world. This made it easy to settle in and feel welcome. Being a part of small university is an experience I would never trade; UE is definitely a small school with a big attitude.

The small classes encourage students to get to know professors personally, which was invaluable to me when I needed student research experience and letters of recommendation for graduate school applications, not to mention their advice and personal connections. It also helped me get to know my peers and the students in my major, physics; studying and collaborating with them made it much easier along the way. Plus, being within 3 hours of several big universities and cities such as Nashville, St. Louis and Indianapolis opens up many more opportunities for work and research experiences over the summer, and great vacations! With the close support of a caring international office for information, support, as well as planning events both on and off campus during breaks, made UE quickly feel like a home away from home. Right now I am applying to 9 graduate schools across the USA, confident that my UE experience both socially and academically prepared me for the next step. Thank you UE!

I have been a student at the University of Evansville for the past 3 years and am in my final year as a senior. I am studying pre-med, majoring in biology. UE has been a very pleasant and enriching experience; academically, I am very happy with the choice I made to attend UE. The student to professor ratio in all my major related classes is perfect for personal attention and interaction between faculty and students. My biology courses are all taught by professors who hold terminal degrees and are stalwarts in their field. The education environment provided by UE is very conducive for students like me to prepare for my future plans of going to medical school.

Being the student manager of UE's Soccer Team, I have had the life transforming experience of being part of the sport I love so much. UE has provided me ample opportunities for interacting with people from all different corners of the world. With a semester left for me to graduate, I am proud to have chosen UE as my school of choice and have had great memories here.

What can I say about my UE experience? Simply put, my UE experience has transformed me. When I started college, I didn't dream of doing all the things I have accomplished at UE. Yet, the endless opportunities at UE have exposed me to life-changing experiences I will forever cherish. At UE, I have learned to be a leader as well as a follower through involvement in student-run organizations. I have mentored many and been mentored by many, including faculty.

Academically and professionally, my experience at UE has prepared me for a future in medicine. In the summer of my first year, I was able to intern at an infectious disease hospital in Columbus, GA. During this internship I was able to observe a neurosurgeon in his clinic and the operating room. In the subsequent summers, I observed the medical and administrative practices at a hospital in Nigeria and later worked as a sales representative for a marketing company in Evansville. On a scholarly level, I have been blessed with the opportunity to be a part of the University Choir, an esteemed group of vocal performers with which I was able to perform in Carnegie Hall, New York. I have also been able to take vocal lessons, and will graduate with a minor in music studies, even as I am a neuroscience major. These are opportunities I would not have easily taken hold of if I was not a student at UE.

All of these experiences have transformed my disposition to life and appreciation for the true gifts of life. From classes in political science to classes in advanced neuroscience, I have been exposed to almost all fields of education. From soccer and basketball intramural sports to student leadership experiences, I have also been exposed to a wide variety of sports and extracurricular activities. For seven semesters, I have lived the UE experience and I have enjoyed every bit of it!
