Governor 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.

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."

Moffetts 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.

New residence hall namesAime Anderson, director of Residential Services, left, and SGA President Brett 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.
New 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 funds.
     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.

Students collecting 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 efforts. 
     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 brett.bova@selu.edu.

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 children.
     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 variety.
      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.
