to speak at Rural Economic Development Conference Feb. 1-3
Louisiana Governor Kathleen Babineaux Blanco will be the featured speaker
at the second annual Rural Economic Development Conference to be held at
Southeastern Feb. 1-3.
The governor is scheduled to speak at
9:50 a.m. on Thursday, the final day of the conference. The featured speaker
on Wednesday will be Louisiana Secretary of Economic Development Mike Olivier,
who will address the group at 8: 15 a.m. The conference will be held at
the University Center.
Sponsored by the Governor’s Office of
Rural Development and the Police Jury Association of Louisiana, the conference
will focus on “Technology: the Back Road to Rural Louisiana.” Approximately
600 participants are expected to attend from throughout the state. Last
year’s conference was held at Northwestern Louisiana University in Natchitoches.
The conference will necessitate the
designation of certain areas on Southeastern’s north campus that are currently
reserved for student parking for individuals attending the event.
University Police Director Paul Marek
said the parking lot located behind the Alumni Center, the Section 7 lot
at the University Center, and the parking area located north of the University
Avenue underpass will not be available for students Feb. 1-3.
On Feb. 3, the conference ends at noon,
freeing the parking area north of the underpass and Section 7 lot. However,
the parking area behind the Alumni Center will remain closed for parade
assembly for the Krewe of Omega, which rolls that evening.
Marek recommended that students park
in the nearby lot north of Textbook Rental and consider carpooling during
the event. Students who live in university residences will be expected
to keep their vehicles in their assigned lots. In addition, Marek said
officers will be on site to direct students to available parking on campus.

Southeastern hosted one of the largest Senior Days in recent history
on Saturday, when high school seniors and their parents visited campus
for an informal and entertaining introduction to the university. Students
and parents took campus tours, browsed exhibits on academic programs and
attended presentations on admissions, scholarships, and financial aid opportunities.
They also got to tour new residential housing facilities.
|Meet the SACS on-site review team
The two members of Southeastern's SACS on-site review team who will
be primarily responsible for evaluating the university's Quality Enhancement
Plan have been identified. Both are nationally-recognized experts in the
area of academic advising.
Dr. Alice Reinarz is currently the interim
assistant provost for enrollment at Texas A & M University in
College Station, Texas. Dr. Reinarz was formerly the associate dean of
undergraduate studies at Texas A & M, and has previously served at
the University of Michigan and the University of Texas at Austin as the
director of academic advising centers. She has frequently been an instructor
at the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) Summer Institutes
and also serves on the 2004-2005 NACADA Administrator's Institute Advisory
Board and the NACADA Publications Advisory Board. NACADA is the country's
most recognized national organization dedicated to promoting high standards
for academic advising. Her publications, presentations, and consultancies
on the topics of academic advising and the importance of academic advising
to the collegiate learning experience are numerous. At Texas A & M
where she is also a clinical professor in the Department of Pathobiology,
Dr. Reinarz served as a member of the Texas A & M QEP team.
Nancy Walburn is currently the director of the Division
of General Studies at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. As director,
she provides leadership for advising and academic support services to undeclared
and pre-professional majors at UAB. She is currently serving a three-year
term on the NACADA Board of Directors, and she was the NACADA Region IV
chair from 1992 to 1996. She was awarded the NACADA Outstanding Advising
Administrator Award in 2003. In her role at UAB, Ms. Walburn also coordinates
the University's freshmen experience course, and she is chair of the University's
standing committee on academic advising policy.
"Southeastern is very fortunate to get two
outstanding people to serve on the SACS visiting team," said Dr. Beatrice
Baldwin, assistant vice president for academic affairs and the university's
SACS liaison. "These individuals will not only evaluate our QEP for SACS,
but will also provide recommendations for the plan and the implementation
process. They are very familiar with the national trends, research, and
issues. We are looking forward to their feedback."
to serve as Krewe of Omega grand marshalls
President Randy Moffett and his wife Barbara will serve as Grand Marshals
for the Krewe of Omega’s 2005 Mardi Gras parade scheduled to roll in Hammond
at 6 p.m. Thursday (Feb. 3).
“We are both extremely honored to serve this
year as Grand Marshals,” said Randy Moffett. “Hammond has been home for
Barbara and me for nearly 30 years now, and the Krewe of Omega is one of
the traditional celebrations associated with both Southeastern and the
city. We are thrilled to be part of this year’s parade.”
Omega Captain Joyce Smith said Randy and Barbara
Moffett were selected as Grand Marshals for their tremendous community
spirit and for their ongoing efforts to make Southeastern a strong educational
partner for Hammond and the entire region.
The Krewe of Omega will leave its staging
area at the Southeastern University Center on University Avenue and roll
straight onto General Pershing, turn left on Dakota, right on Oak Street,
right on Charles Street, left of East Thomas Street, left on Railroad Ave.
returning to the University Center.
The Krewe was started informally by
the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity at Southeastern in the late 1970s and was
officially formed under the name Northlake Carnival Club in 1986. During
Mardi Gras season, the Krewe traditionally begins its parade day by traveling
from Kentwood to Ponchatoula honoring and toasting the mayors of all the
cities along the north-south railroad track in Tangipahoa. The day concludes
with the night parade in Hammond.
CAB's events, promotions
featured in magazine
Southeastern's Campus Activities Board was featured in a recent edition
of the Association for Promotion of Campus Activities Student Activities
Journal. The section touted CAB's popular "Southeastern Star" competition,
Southeastern's version of "American Idol," as well as important CAB events
such as Gumbo Ya Ya and Strawberry Jubilee. It also spotlighted CAB's promotion
strategies, such as CAB's "DUDE, check out today's event" t-shirts worn
by members on meeting and special event days and the organization's giant
inflatable lion which calls attention to CAB activities.

Bova, right, congratulate Sabrina Anzalone, administrative coordinator
in the College of Arts and Sciences dean's office, who submitted one of
the winning entries in the contest to name Southeastern's new residence
halls now have names
The letters that temporarily designated Southeastern's new residence
halls while construction was underway have now been replaced by real names,
thanks to a campus wide contest. "AA, AB, AC, and AD" are now "Washington
Hall," "St. Tammany Hall," "Tangiphaoa Hall," and "Hammond Hall," respectively.
Residential Services Director Aime Anderson
and SGA President Brett Bova announced the winning names on Jan. 28. Last
year, contest participants were asked to submit names with a Louisiana
theme. Since more than one person suggested that the new residence halls
be named for southeast Louisiana parishes, names were drawn to determine
the ultimate winner.
The winners receive $250 in Lions Lagniappe
Lezlie Haynes, an administrative assistant
in the Kinesiology and Health Studies Department, was selected as the winner
for the names "Washington" and "Tangipahoa," while Sabrina Anzalone, an
administrative coordinator in the College of Arts and Sciences, was selected
for "St. Tammany" and Layne Pollard, a sophomore psychology and pre-med
major from Baton Rouge, was selected for "Hammond."
Stay tuned: names for the four additional
residence will be announced at a later date.

funds for tsunami victims
Southeastern student organizations are joining forces to help victims
of the devastating tsunami in Southeast Asia.
The Student Government Association is spearheading
a campus-wide fundraiser for American Red Cross Tsunami Relief and Recovery
Efforts Jan. 31-Feb. 4. SGA President Brett Bova of Hammond said SGA has
asked its fellow organizations to help staff a fundraising station in the
War Memorial Student Union mall.
The organizations will solicit one dollar
donations that will be given to the American Red Cross.
“Our goal is $3,000,” said Bova said. “Combining our efforts to raise
money for the disaster will benefit a region that has suffered so much.”
According to its web site, the American Red
Cross International Response Fund is using donations “to provide tsunami
survivors with nutritious food, basic supplies such as tents and hygiene
items, basic health care and the support that they’ll need to cope with
the unbelievable trauma they’ve experienced.” The organization has pledged
that 100 percent of every donation made goes to tsunami relief and recovery
Bova said SGA is also coordinating an effort
to organize a Southeastern Red Cross Campus Club. At two- and four-year
universities across the nation, the clubs work hand-in-hand with local
Red Cross chapters to provide Red Cross-related services to the campus
and local community. The services include disaster relief or community
disaster education, health and safety activities and training such as first
aid and CPR, blood drives, and other community service projects.
Students interested in joining or helping
organize the club are asked to contact Bova via email at email@example.com.
Gamma Beta Phi begins
"Ben's Kicks for Kids"
In response to an appeal from a Southeastern alumnus stationed in Iraq,
Gamma Beta Phi is spearheading a drive to collect socks and shoes for Iraqi
Jackie Dale Thomas, GBP co-advisor and director
of Leadership Development/Student Activities, said Ben Necaise, an alumnus
of Southeastern and Gamma Beta Phi, is presently serving in Baghdad.
"Although the recent events that have resulted
in the deaths of eight Louisiana National Guardsmen in Iraq happened very
close to him, Necaise is striving to continue to make a difference to the
future of Iraq – its’ children," Thomas said. "Ben emailed his mother-in-law,
Southeastern horticulture instructor Linda Ryan, with a special request.
He noted that the temperature in Iraq now is 30 degrees and that the majority
of the children there had neither shoes nor socks. He also said that giving
these children these much needed items builds friendships."
In answer to Neicase's appeal, Gamma
Beta Phi is sponsoring a sock and shoe drive named in his honor, “Ben’s
Kicks for Kids.” From Feb. 9-23, GBP will collect shoes and socks
to mail to Iraq. The shoes can be any size or style. Used shoes are welcome,
if they are in good shape. Socks should be new and can be of any size or
Anyone wishing to assist with this drive
can drop items off at Thomas' Leadership Development/Student Activities
office, Student Union Room 110, during regular working hours, Feb. 9-23.
