According to a recent U.S. Census Bureau re- port, approximately one in six Americans live in pov- erty, and Indiana's poverty rate is higher than the na- tional average. Further- more, on any given night, around 500 people in Evansville, IN, are home- less - living in shelters, transitional housing facili- ties, cars, or tents. To raise awareness of homelessness and its im- pact in Evansville, the United States and the world, Mallory Ermler of Carlisle recently partici- pated in Box City at the University of Evansville, Evansville, IN. Ermler is majoring in Psychology. On the evening of Mon- day, Oct. 3 (World Habitat Day), approximately 135 UE students built box shel- ters, listened to commu- nity speakers share per- sonal stories of homeless- ness and learned how lo- cal nonprofit organiza- tions such as Habitat for Humanity are addressing the issue. Students then had the option of spending the night in their shelters.

The classes are separated by rank (beginners and ad- vanced) and students meet twice a week. Class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays, in the Oviatt gym or multi- purpose room. Beginners meet from 6:15-7 p.m. and advanced students meet from 7-8 p.m. We also offer a Little Dragon program designed for children ages five to seven. Little Dragons meet twice a week. This program is run concurrently with the begin- ning class. Maximum number of students in the Little Dragon program is 20, so register early. All programs consist of hand and foot techniques, forms, self-defense, lessons and instructions on topics such as respect, self-disdpline and perseverance. Competition is also available for those students who are interested. Competition teaches sportsmanship, gives confidence and allows the students to use the skills they have learned in class.
