The best thing about UE for me personally (being an athlete) is our athletic facilities. Our soccer program has THE BEST grass field in the MVC conference. One thing I would change is making the school have a "college town" feeling. We are kind of secluded from the rest of the community because of how small our campus is and our specific location. Since we are a dry campus, we don't have any bars within 5 miles of the campus, but we also don't have a lot of resturants within walking distance. Nothing is too far away (just a 10-15 minute drive down the Lloyd) but it would be nice to have things in a more convenient spot. UE is perfect for the student who wants to roll out of bed 5-10 minutes before class and still be on time. We are only a block and a half in radius (when you add the athletic facilities) so it only takes 5-10 minutes to walk the entire length of the campus. I feel we have one of the best administrations. Since we are a small campus, the student-staff relationship is amazing and actually gives a "family-like" feeling. You can always talk to the professors and they are always interested in your life (along with how you do in the classroom).
The most popular organizations tend to be athletes (Student Athlete Advisory Committee), greek life, and clubs within your major. I am personally involved with women's soccer and the Student Athlete Adivsory Committee (SAAC), Students of AMF, Physical Therapy Club, Exercise and Sport Science Club, National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and the National Society of Leadership and Success. In the dorm life, students have the option of leaving their door open. A lot of students do leave them open unless they are studying. Athletic events for men's athletics are VERY popular. Since we do not have a football team, our men's basketball team is the most popular sport and the most fun to attend. Fraternities/Sororities make up 30% of the population so they are a big impact on the university. It's a great way to get involved and meet new people. There are tons of things to do on the weekend besides drinking. There are usually theatre events going on, game nights, athletic events, or group gatherings that do not involve drinking (especially since we are a dry campus). You can always find something to do and have fun with!
Being a small school, if your professor does not know your name, then you have never been to class. After the first week or two of classes, your professors normally know you by name. They will talk to you outside of class and ask you how you are doing with everything. If you are involved on campus (whether in athletics, theatre, greek life) the professors normally know. Being a private school, the expectations are usually higher so students study based on their major. If you are a science based major, you are normally studying a lot more than a business or education based major. Class participation tends to be a big factor in a lot of classes. Students at UE are very competitive especially with the continuing education programs we have (Nursing Program, Physical Therapy Program). These programs are designed to be competitive and only take the best students possible. There are only 40 spots available - and although there isn't a huge student body (roughly 2,500 students), a lot of the population comes to UE for these programs specifically. The education received at UE is intended to help you get the best job possible in your field and help you be ready to start a career. There are so many services and help from the staff that it is very easy when you graduate to have a job/career already set up.
There is a place for everyone at the University of Evansville. You don't have to have just one stereotype to be a student at UE. Since we are a private school, people think that we are all nerds, but the biggest population of students actually consist of athletes (10% of the student body) and greeks (30% of the student body). However, you don't have to be outrageously smart, athletic or greek affiliated to fit in here. There are places for everyone to get involved - whether you're religious, artsey, or musical, you will find people just like you here. And don't be afraid to mix your stereotype! Since it is a small campus, it is easy and fun to get involved with many different groups!

Olivia, dear, you should have no problems making friends in college. You're going to be so surprised how easy it is, so don't worry about it. Maybe you should practise having a schedualed study time. School is not as structured as high school. Life is no longer 8am to 3pm straight school. You'll have an hour to two hours between classes, and you should spend those hours studying or reading to get ahead of your homework. By the way, homework will no longer be accomplished within an hour. Expect four hours or more of studying, homework, and writing papers. A little forwarning is the best advice I can give to you, my procrastinating past self.
I've only just arrived! I've been on campus for just a few weeks, and it's hard to think of the worst thing. Maybe it's too soon in our budding educational relationship to define faults. I'm maddly in love with the University of Evansville right now.
In my dorm hall, the bathrooms have three walls, a door, and a curtain! It seems silly to brag about something so trivial, but I love the shower privacy. I also brag about the friendliness of the campus; Everyone is so kind and nice, from the faculty to the students. I've never felt so welcome in a strange, new place.

The University of Evansville is a small, but close-kint environment, and the school emphasizes learning cultural acceptance, diversity, and freedom.
I would tell myself it would be better to live on campus from the start, so that I would not miss out on all the extra-curricular activites, clubs, and social gatherings. Living on campus would have made it so that I had one less thing to worry about. I would also tell myself to be more open and outgoing, and get to know more people.
I wish I had known to be more open and more of myself so I could have found the friends I now have sooner.

My school, Hofstra University, has a multitude of diffrerent majors and minors to choose from, there are hundreds of clubs and groups supported by the school, and is located in Long Island, next door to New York City, which is an area teeming with opportunities for internships. There are 12,000 students attending my college, so there is a never ending diversity, amazing teachers, and it has a rugby team, which I am a member of and proud of. The school is like its own little city and it has a beautiful look and feel to its campus.
I would say that I should have forced myself to study more and ensure enough sleep. What I did wrong my first semester was that I slacked off in exchange for a social life. I should have focused on my studies, because my GPA is what ensures me that I can have that social life. This was the mistake I made and wish I could go back and ensure I would not have messed up my GPA immediately after entering college.
I wish I had know the tuition would be so much. It is currently $50,000 a year, but because of the benefits listed above, it is a school worth staying at, which is why I am applying for this scholarship.

If I could go back in time and talk to myself and give myself advice, honestly, I would say take the standarized tests and go to a state college. Honeslty, the community college I go to now is not very safe and it is hard to get all the classes to transfer. In the end I am spenind more money instead of saving like I thought I would. So I would tell myself go to a state college and take the tests. But if my otherself told me, " No, I am going to community college". I would then tell myself to learn streetsmarts and it will take longer than you thing but to keep plugging away.

“Don’t freak out! This is yourself talking to you.” “Listen up! Tonya you need to focus on high school and get better grades because you will start college in December of 2008. Yes you will be scared there are no two ways about it. Just remember to keep your head above water no matter how much distraction is around you. Dad and mom are going to get the divorce you wish for, and everything will be fine.” “Give college your all it's worth it. I could tell you that this will be a tight struggle and challenging as you will find yourself at your ultimate low living in a run-down trailer house that your kids refer to it as the rain house because the roof was gone in parts, but there is no sense in telling you this because it only gave you more ambition to do better. You graduate from college with a 3.3 GPA with all the family and friends there to watch you strut across the stage. The words that you hear matter the most “Honey, I am so proud of you.” This is what your husband says to you with your kids.

To begin with, don't worry so much about missing your high school friends. In college, you meet such a variety of people; you'll make new ones in no time at all. Your high school friends are only made based on where you live. Your college friends will be made based on who you are. You will meet people in college from other places in the world that can completely change your perspectives. When you start to worry about whether you can succeed or not, don't. Just believe in yourself and you can. You know you are smart and you know you will do well throughout your whole life. So just stop worrying about your success and worry about paying for your success. You need to apply for as many scholarships as possible. Yes, mom was right. Senior year flies by and procrastinating on the scholarships makes you miss out on a lot of opportunities. Start saving now. Lastly, don't pack so much. You really don't need that many clothes! Move in day will go by a lot faster and moving out will be a lot easier if you just leave some things at home.
A person that is only in school to go to parties and not study much should definietly not go to UE. Also, a student who does not want to be the center of attention in classes should not go here since the average class size it 17. A student who needs a lot of activities going on at once or needs lots of things to do in the city around the college is also not recommended.

If I could go back in high school and give myself advice, I would advise myself to have started looking and preparing for college sooner. I would have started in the 10th grade instead of late 11th grade. I was not able to apply to certain colleges I wanted because of my late start. Although, now, I am very proud to be going to the University of Evansville. It is an outstanding school and I am always proud to tell people that I go to the University of Evansville.
A person who is not willing to study or put effort towards furthering their future should not attend the University of Evansville.

If I could go back in time to offer my high school self some advice, I would recommend taking the honors writing class instead of creative writing, and I would also advise myself to do more of my homework. I have always been a self-critic when it comes to my writing. My senior year of high school, I decided not to take the honors writing course to save myself the embarrassment. Instead, I took creative writing. Honestly, that class got me no where. My college courses are mostly wiriting intensive, so I really wish thast I had taken the class that required the same amount of writing that my college classes require now. I believe that doing all of my homwork during high school would have helped the transition to college a lot during the frist semester. I am not saying that I never did my homework, but cutting corners did not help me. In college it is essential that I do all of my homework or I would not have the best understanding of the material, and I really value getting all of the understanding that I can now because I want to be comptent in my field.
I wish I had known about ordering books online for my classe instead of buying from the book store, because it was too expensive.

Knowing what I know now about college life and making the transition from high school, I would go back in time and advise myself to prepare for the most incredible next four years. I would tell myself to brush up on my foreign languages, because 4 of my 5 housemates are international students. I would tell myself to save up and apply for as many scholarships as possible, because textbooks, groceries, and plane tickets back home add up quite quickly. Most importantly, I would put an arm around high school senior me's shoulders and tell myself to always, always take time to appreciate the people around me. The University of Evansville is home to an amazing array of professors, staff, and students who come from every imaginable background all over the country and world. Most of all, high school me would need to know that I am truly privileged to be studying with and learning from such truly inspirational Purple Aces.
Before coming to this school, I wish I had known that it did not offer a huge variety of classes that are needed for my major. In fact (as an International Studies major) it is actually necessary for me to study abroad in order to fufill my upper division, specialized, class requirements.
I tell my friends that the classes are so small and learning-centered that professors know when you're absent (your grade is even affected). Professors are easy to contact, whether in their offices or via e-mail. Our faculty genuinely cares about its students and wants us to succeed. They seem always willing to write recommendation letters, give advice, or just chat. I even dogsit for one of my professors.
