Southeastern biology graduate Anna Clark-Aguilard, left, and forensic entomologist Erin Watson-Horzelski help with the creation of "Magot Monets" at the Louisiana State Arboretum at Chicot State Par in Ville Platte on July 13 at the facility's annual Insect Day.
"Maggot Monets" involve fly maggots put in paint. The maggots are then placed on paper, and they move around and make designs.

Southeastern to notify students on financial aid via email
Southeastern students will now receive timely email notifications of their financial aid rather than through the U.S. postal system, university officials announced.
The email notification is Southeastern's latest enhancement to the enrollment and financial aid process designed to meet students' needs more efficiently, explained Director of Enrollment Services Lori Fairburn. The notices will be delivered through the students' official Southeastern email account.
The communication will include instructions on how students can accept financial aid awards through LEONet. New students needing assistance accessing their email accounts should visit southeastern.edu/email for more information.
Questions from students regarding the award notification or their financial aid package should be directed to the Office of Financial Aid at 1-800-222-SELU or 549-2244 on Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. through Aug. 11. Beginning Aug. 12, office hours are Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Friday from 7:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
