FEB. 26 JUNIOR DAY INTRODUCES HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO SOUTHEASTERN 
        HAMMOND -- High school juniors and their parents are invited to Southeastern Louisiana University’s “Junior Day 2005,” Saturday, Feb. 26. 
The informal and entertaining introduction to the university is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. at the War Memorial Student Union. After checking in, participants can browse academic and other Southeastern related displays. They can also learn about Southeastern’s admissions standards and procedures, campus life and services, financial aid and scholarship opportunities at a 10:30 a.m. session.
        Afternoon activities will include lunch and campus tours, including visits to the university’s new residential community. Attendees can also learn about Southeastern Scholars, a program designed to give qualified high school students the opportunity to get a jump-start on their college education by earning up to six credit hours per semester, prior to graduating from high school. 
        “High school juniors should begin to narrow down their college choices at this time of year in order to find the right fit for them,” said Anthony Ranatza, coordinator of recruiting services at Southeastern. “Junior Day is Southeastern’s sneak peak into all the great things we have to offer.”
        Participants are encouraged to RSVP at www.selu.edu/JuniorDay.
        For additional information on Junior Day 2005 call 1-800-222-SELU or 985-549-5637. For more about Southeastern, visit www.selu.edu/futurestudents.
