Great Things Come in Small Packages
Although it is a small school, the University of Evansville has much to offer to its students. “It has the benefits of a small campus and a large campus,” explained Anna Kalt. “I get the small class size and one-on-one interaction with my professors, but I also get the great job placement, connections, staff and faculty, and study opportunities.”
Coming from Newburgh, Indiana, Anna was drawn to UE because it was a small local school and she was familiar with the campus. “The community is close and full of opportunities,” said Anna.
Making Connections Everywhere
Anna was active both in and out of the classroom. She attended Supplemental Instruction sessions (which is where a student can receive additional instruction), participated in many business, leadership, and faith organizations, and joined study groups with her friends.
Anna built friendships with her fellow students through these organizations and with the people who lived on her same floor in Powell Residence Hall. She also established a relationship with Gene Wells, the senior director of the Center for Career Development.
Finding a Place Where You Belong
For future students looking to apply at the University of Evansville, Anna had some advice to share. “Don’t let the initial sticker price of a college stop you,” she said. “Chances are you will get scholarships or financial aid that will make the price far more reasonable.” Small schools or big schools, it’s about finding the place where you’ll be comfortable.
