Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2022
"I love the faculty here and the friends I've made. However, I have many issues with the administration. They've increasingly cut programs and academic funding, made decisions without input from faculty, and prioritized budget over students' wellbeing. This year (2020) they have released a plan to fire a quarter of the faculty and cut 17 majors, including three entire departments. This university only cares about having D1 athletics, not its students' opportunities or its professors' livelihood. If you want a good college experience, look for a university that supports its faculty and values its academic programs. Don't come to UE."

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2014
"The personal attention from several professors in the Social Sciences department allows students to develop their career goals as it relates to their personal strengths, not just their academic achievements. I did not have the strongest GPA, or most quality research skills as my cohorts, but I had several professors who took the time to get to know me on a more personal basis and assessing my soft skills to map my goals. Generally, the campus offered a typical art school education. I enjoyed the small general classes and the fact that programs, greek life, athletes, and theater groups were able to support one another. I enjoyed that I could enjoy a progressive education in southern Indiana. I was able to complete my degree in four years without taking summer classes and obtaining a minor in psychology. The University was challenging but provided adequate support along the way."

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018
"If you are looking to attend the University of Evansville for a business degree I advise you look somewhere else. Evansville is a terrible location and if you have done your research you would have learned that at one point it was the METH capital. My advice to transfer and incoming freshman is to do yourself a favor and go to IU where you will have a better experience and find more opportunities. Evansville is just a run down small town with no employment success for business majors. If I haven’t convinced enough, the school also makes not all, but selective business majors pay $3,000 to do an internship which is not found through the school’s career database but found by the student probably doing a google or indeed search for jobs. Paid or Unpaid you still have to dish out $3,000. But, lucky for you, the University Of Evansville is close to several strip clubs within a mile radius to help pay for there ridiculous and overpriced tuition at their “prestigious” University."

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2017
"The University of Evansville played such a crucial role in my professional education. The standards the Theatre Program holds their students are the same standards held by the professional theatre industry. I entered the program as a "Theatre Generalist," which meant I had multiple interests in the theatre. I studied acting, directing, dramaturgy, and design. While I enjoyed multiple aspects of the theatre, my passion came from working as a Lighting Designer. The faculty and my fellow students helped guide me through different fields of study, but once I landed on Lighting Design, my professional drive skyrocketed. Part of what makes UE's Theatre Department so great is they require their students to study different areas of the theatre. Actors learn how to build scenery; costume designers learn how to focus and hang lighting equipment; Ticket Office Managers have the opportunity to direct plays. Students who graduate from UE's Theatre Department know how to succeed in multiple areas, which only makes them more marketable and further educated for professional opportunities. Because of my education with UE, I am now a Graduate Student with the University of California Irvine studying Lighting Design. I can say with full confidence that I would not be at UCI if it were not for my time and experiences from UE."

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015
"Overall, the University of Evansville provided me with experience that will benefit me throughout the duration of my career as a Healthcare Professional. Having pursued a degree in Health Services Administration, I was able to obtain my first professional position at the age of 19, chosen ahead of 5 other experienced candidates. Not only was I chosen for this position, but I was prepared to complete an accelerated Master's Degree program and enroll in a Doctoral program within a few years of completing my Bachelor's degree from the University of Evansville. Additionally, I was able to continue my career at one of the most prestigious medical colleges in the United States. All of this was made possible because of my attendance at the University of Evansville, which is concerned with providing students with exceptional education as well as real-world experiences. The combination of these facets produces CITIZENS, not just students, that are prepared to commit their lives to endeavors that benefit their communities. While the academic facet of my attendance was fantastic, the social experience was not as pleasant. The institution is not very diverse; however, some efforts are being made to improve the feeling of comfort experienced by minority students. The UE Honors Program had little to no diversity during my attendance at the school. Little support was provided to minority students in this program. Overall, I recommend this institution for an individual that wishes to pursue academic excellence, but not to one that wishes to thrive socially in an environment that supports the social and academic endeavors of minority students."

"The University of Evansville is a great institution to earn your degree. The campus is small but located in the city so there is plenty to do. The education that you will receive at the university is second to none and the professors are there to teach and mentor you to help you achieve your goals. The class sized are small so it is easy to talk to your professors and they are always eager to answer any questions you may have. The whole school is centered around making sure that you are prepared for your career after you graduate the university. As an alumni of the University of Evansville I promise you will not regret attending the university."

"UE is a school with extremely supportive faculty and small class sizes; I've maintained a relationship with some of my professors even now, as I'm getting an advanced degree. This said, there are some disadvantages. Evansville itself is a rather unpleasant town, and UE's library is minuscule. And unless you have financial aid, it's quite expensive."
