Profiles in Health Sciences
- Major: Public Health (Pre-Medicine)
- Country: Nigeria
From the moment I got to Evansville and met two IOLs waiting to pick me up from the airport, I knew I had made the right choice coming here. UE is a really small campus but the people here have really big hearts and just care about you so much more.
Although UE cares a lot about academics, that's not all. There are so many clubs you can join, from having fun at ballroom dancing to volunteering at College mentors for kids to learning how to be a leader at UELA, the opportunities are endless. There is also a ChangeLab (formerly GAP) course to find innovative ways you can make a positive difference. As long as you seize the opportunities you are given, at the end of your time here at UE, you will be a well-rounded adult ready to take on anything. I won't trade coming to UE for anything. Go purple Aces!

The University of Evansville's Health Services Administration program allowed me to develop all of the skills needed and provided all of the knowledge for a career in Health Care. The program focuses on a variety of important aspects of Health Care and does a great job at connecting all of them together. From learning about the business aspect of the field with classes such as Health Care Finance and Health Care Marketing, to relating to patients and coworkers with Patient Care and Management, and all of the tools needed to successfully analyze data at work with Health Information Technology and Health Statistics. The professors are professionals in the field with great experience and can relate to the students and also the material that they are teaching.
- Major: Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education

My experience at UE has definitely shaped both my career path and who I am now. Not only did I meet my husband at UE, but I was also able to grow personally through the different experiences I had. After graduating from UE, I moved to Texas where I taught 1st grade for two years. When my daughter was born, I decided to stop teaching to become a stay-at-home mom. My whole experience as an international student at UE was so impactful, that when it came time for me to go back to work, I decided that I wanted to work with international students instead. When I was in undergrad at UE, I was very involved with anything international. I was always very thankful for the staff and all the help they were to me and I wanted to be able to do the same for other international students. So, I decided to go back to school and pursue my Master's in International Studies from the University of Connecticut. While there, I was fortunate to work in the International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) office on campus where I helped international students and scholars. After graduating from UConn, we moved to Tennessee where I worked as the Study Abroad Coordinator at East Tennessee State University for about 2.5 years. Although I loved working with domestic students helping them go abroad, I missed working more closely with international students. Therefore, I recently took a job as the Senior Coordinator of the ISSS office at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

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 120 student organizations in which any student can join.
- Major: Nursing
- Country: Kenya
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. There are a ton of things to do on campus since the University of Evansville has over 120 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.
