The 300-acre wooded campus is situated in beautiful rolling hills on the edge of Evansville, Indiana's third largest city. A cultural and economic hub for the Tri-State area of Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky, Evansville is located in the southwestern tip of Indiana, on the banks of the Ohio River. Evansville's moderate size provides the activity and accessibility of a large metropolitan city while maintaining the special charm of a small river town.
The city is a comfortable drive to metropolitan areas such as Chicago, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Louisville. Several major airlines serve Evansville Regional Airport, providing access to international hub airports in the Midwest. Numerous recreational activities are available in the city, including live concerts throughout the year, theatrical productions, and sports. Evansville is home to a professional baseball team, the Otters. Insight into the region's history can be gained by visiting historical locales, such as Angel Mounds State Historic Site.
