Reminder: Summer Orientation Sessions will be on June 16, 18, 23, and 25th. If you organization has previously signed up to participate in the Student Organization Browse each session will be from 1:30PM - 2:30PM in front of Pottle Theater. Please note this location change from previous summers. In addition to the location change, there are several other changes that I would like to make you aware of. Table setup and check-in will start at 1:00PM and table location will be on a first come, first serve basis. Each organization can only have 5 representatives at the browse. This is due to the smaller space and the fact that there are fewer students at each organization browse due to the increase in the overall number of orientation sessions. Please note that if your organization fails to attend one of the sessions that they originally signed up for then your organization will be removed from participation in the remaining orientation sessions for the summer.
Preparations for the Fall 2015 semester are underway and University Housing is seeking your help with welcoming our new class of Lions.

Volunteers will be stationed throughout our Residential Community to welcome and help our students move into their new homes. We would like to request your organization to help with one of our two volunteer shifts: (A) 8am- 12:30pm or (B) 12:00pm- 3:30pm. If your organization is interested in helping or has questions about the event, please email University Housing at email@example.com as soon as possible. Include your prefered shift time and number of volunteers in your email so we can best assign our volunteer team.

Girl Scouts Louisiana East will be hosting its BIG Event (Believe In Girls) on Saturday September 12th from 10amto 3pm on the campus of Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, Louisiana. The event will be a day of hands-on activities and presentations showcasing organizations which foster and encourage Girl Scout involvement and education in initiatives such as STEM, Healthy Living, Financial Literacy and the great outdoors. The set-up will be a trade show atmosphere in which Girl Scouts can visit exhibits and attend presentations and special events which will be taking place throughout the day.
Student organizations of Southeast Louisiana University are encouraged to participate in this event. This will be a great way for your members to gain service hours as well as to engage young minds! Your organization can volunteer to assist with event maintenance by hosting registration tables or being campus information guides and directing foot traffic or presentation support. A more active approach to participate, if your group is willing and able to, is by providing hands-on activities and presentations for Girl Scouts attending the event. Booth spaces are available to host informative and interactive displays for girls to participate in as they walk thru the different areas. Special start and stop timed presentations will be held in different classrooms as 30-60 minute sessions that may repeat during the day and possibly change to target different age ranges. Outdoor space is also available for more elaborate, free-flowing activities and interactive stations not suited for a classroom setting. Your promotional materials and program information about how Girl Scouts can participate with your organization are encouraged! For more information please contact Kevin Shipp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
