HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University will hold a seminar on “How to Become

Interim Director of the English as a Second Language Program Danielle Perez de Corcho said attendees will learn about the naturalization process and what they need to become U.S. citizens. Leading the discussion is Community Relations Officer of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Anne M. Hackett.
“This event is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have about becoming a U.S. citizen and get answers from an expert,” Perez de Corcho said. “Besides discussing the requirements, attendees will also learn about the interview process and the citizenship test. Free study materials for the test will be distributed to those in attendance as well.”
