Southeastern’s freshman class grows
More students are choosing Southeastern. The Fall 2019 freshman class grew over 2.2% over the previous year’s freshman class, for a total of 2,733 students, and the university welcomed a better-prepared new student as the overall ACT scores increased.
     Greater numbers of highly qualified students are choosing Southeastern, proven with over a 7.4% increase in the number of students with an ACT of 24 or higher, totaling nearly 800 new students.
     “We are very pleased with our 2019 freshman class. Our recruitment efforts emphasize the quality and value of a Southeastern degree and the incredible caring environment we provide. As a result, we are garnering more and more interest from new students,” said President John L. Crain.
     Southeastern also saw record attendance at each of its on-campus recruitment events this past year, including a 55% increase in Lion Pride Preview events over the previous year.
     “All indicators were that this would be a stronger and better prepared freshman class, and the numbers show exactly what we expected,” explained Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Management Kay Maurin.
     “Enhancements in our admission applications, improved communications to our new students, and stronger relationships with our high school partners generated positive results,” said Maurin. “Despite the shrinking high school population around the state, we are excited about our positive growth and highly qualified students choosing Southeastern.”
     As the third largest university in Louisiana, Southeastern continues to focus on the personal connections with core values of caring and excellence. Currently offering over 150 programs of study, including many that are regionally and nationally ranked, Southeastern continues to be a leader in higher education around the region.

 

Southeastern biologist discovers new species of crocodile
It has been a while since anyone has found a new crocodile. Thanks to the research of Southeastern Assistant Professor of Biology Christopher Murray and his colleague and former Southeastern classmate Caleb McMahan, that is no longer the case.
     Southeastern Biological Sciences Department Head Christopher Beachy said that in an average year, worldwide there are many species of reptile described; however, most of these are snakes or lizards.
     “Discovery of new species is not often a case of being in nature, seeing something remarkable and exclaiming ‘Wow! This is an entirely new species.’” said Beachy. “New species are described mostly when experts, like Dr. Murray, are involved. We’re especially excited that this work began when Dr. Murray was studying to complete his master’s degree at Southeastern. That this has come to completion now that he is a tenure-track faculty member speaks to the quality of the training our graduate students receive. It also speaks to the international reputation that many of our faculty have. We’re very proud of that.”
     Murray said the discovery is important because there are only about two dozen described species of extant crocodilian.

Children, teens can audition October 14 for Missoula Children's Theatre’s Jack and the Beanstalk
Jack and the BeanstalkAuditions for the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of “Jack and the Beanstalk” will be held Monday, Oct. 14, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts.
     A non-profit educational theater troupe, Missoula Children’s Theatre has been a hometown arts favorite since 1992, often as part of Fanfare, Southeastern Louisiana University’s fall arts festival.
     “Children in grades kindergarten through high school may audition,” said Artistic Director of Columbia Theatre and Fanfare Jim Winter. “Approximately 50-60 local students will be cast to appear in the show with a Missoula tour actor/director. Missoula will cast the young actors on Monday and get started right away teaching them lines, staging, songs and movement. By Saturday, the children will be ready to perform, complete with professionally designed costumes and scenery.”
     Students wishing to audition must arrive by 4 p.m. and stay for the entire two-hour session. The first rehearsal begins approximately 15-30 minutes after the audition and lasts until 8:30 p.m.
     “Since it is a group audition, no advance preparation is necessary – but a smile never hurts,” said Winter. “Students should just be ready to come and have a good time.”
     Rehearsals will be conducted Monday through Friday from 4-8:30 p.m. at the Columbia Theatre, 220 E. Thomas St. in downtown Hammond.
     “Although not all cast members will be needed at every session, those auditioning must have a clear schedule for the entire week and, if selected, be able to attend all rehearsals required for their role,” said Winter. “A detailed rehearsal schedule will be distributed at the conclusion of the audition.”
     “Jack and the Beanstalk” will be performed at the Columbia Theatre Saturday, Oct. 19, at 2 p.m. All cast members must be available for all scheduled rehearsals and the Saturday performance.
     Tickets for the public performances are $20 for adults and $13 for students. They are available online at columbiatheatre.org or at the box office, 549-4371.
     The Missoula Children’s Theatre is a non-profit organization based in Missoula, Mont. This season, more than 65,000 young people across the globe will take to part in Missoula productions.

Giving Day 

Southeastern Giving Day merges with Homecoming Week for increased impact
For the first time, Southeastern alumni and supporters will have the opportunity to give back to the university and make an impact during Homecoming, whether or not they are able to attend the festivities. The Southeastern Foundation is moving its annual Giving Day this year to Wednesday, Oct. 9, to coincide with Homecoming Week.
     Previously titled All in For Southeastern: A Day of Giving and held annually in the spring, the fundraising event is now in its fifth year and has garnered over $400,000 for Southeastern and Southeastern students since its inception.
     “Giving Day is a 24-hour giving campaign that provides essential funding to all areas across the university and inspires Southeastern supporters to come together and show their Lion Pride,” said Southeastern Foundation Development Coordinator Ashlin Nicosia.
     Nicosia said after last year’s event, in which an increased number of first-time donors participated over previous years, Southeastern Foundation staff members met to evaluate the current program and determine the best way to continue elevating engagement and support for the university.
     “Since Homecoming Week and Giving Day both seek to bring together all members of the Southeastern community, from current students and alums to the local community and region, out of a shared love for Southeastern and the impact that it has, the move seemed opportune,” she explained. “Its addition to Homecoming Week also provides a way for supporters, both those in town for the festivities and those far away, to give back to their university as part of the Homecoming celebrations.”
     Donations can be made to a general support fund or specific campaigns led by Southeastern departments and organizations. Supporters are encouraged to designate their gifts to any area on campus about which they feel most passionate, Nicosia said. For those with no specific department or organization in mind, donations can be designated to the “area of greatest need,” where gifts will be used across campus as needs arise.
     For more information, or to make a donation on Oct. 9, visit SoutheasternGivingDay.org.

 

Lectures and art highlight Fanfare’s second week
Lectures and an art exhibit are some of the events highlighting the second week of Fanfare, Southeastern’s annual fall arts festival.
     First up is the return of the Fanfare lecture series titled “Your Best 10 Minutes” on Monday, Oct. 7. Scheduled at 1 p.m. in Pottle Auditorium, the series brings in four professors to speak about anything they choose. This edition will feature Ben Bell of Sims Memorial Library, Todd Delaney of KSLU radio, Bill Robison of the History and Political Science Department, and Joe Burns of the Communication and Media Studies Department.
     On Oct. 8, the 18th annual Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi Homecoming Intramural Quiz Bowl will be held from 2 to 5:30 p.m. in the Student Union Theatre. Matchups will include faculty versus faculty and student versus student teams in this fast-paced competition.
     The Department of History and Political Science’s “Then and Now Lecture Series” continues on Oct. 9 with the second presentation of the free series. Zachary Isenhower, a visiting assistant professor of history, will present “The Wild Sawmills of Upstate New York: The Fight for Land and Legitimacy on America’s Frontiers” at 1 p.m. in Pottle Auditorium
     “In the 1840s a contest between New York settlers and the Seneca tribe over land, cabins, and sawmills blurred the legality of land claims with the larger issue of U.S. expansion,” Isenhower said. “From ‘pioneers’ settling ready-made Seneca cabins and sawmills, to the first Native victory before the Supreme Court, each side staked claims within American expansion that challenge the nation’s most cherished myths.”
     Southeastern’s Contemporary Art Gallery will open a new exhibition titled “Liminal Landscapes: a video art exhibition” on Oct. 10 with a free opening reception from 5 – 7 p.m. in the gallery.
     Guest curated by Southeastern Associate Professor of New Media + Animation Cristina Molina, the exhibit brings together the works of contemporary video artists whose work explores the connection between identity and landscape.
     “Explored through a variety of techniques such as video collage, projection mapping and immersive audio video installation, the artists in this exhibition work to reveal terrains both real and imagined through their own unique visual language,” Molina explained.
     Rounding out the week is a free book festival titled “Helping Hands-Build a Better World” at the Hammond Library, located at 314 East Thomas St. in downtown Hammond. Scheduled Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the community event features local nonprofits and other organizations, local authors, and free refreshments.
     For a complete Fanfare schedule, contact the Columbia/Fanfare office at 543-4366 or visit columbiatheatre.org.
