Gerald KellerAt last year's Homecoming, the College of Education and Human Development's Gerald Keller manned the jambalaya pot at the college's tailgating spot across from Garrett Hall. All of Southeastern's academic colleges, as well as student organizations, fraternities and sororities, will be out in force tailgating on campus on Homecoming Day, Oct. 28, and are inviting their alumni to join them.

Colleges, organizations celebrate Homecoming with tailgate reunions
Southeastern's academic colleges as well as a variety of student organizations plan to fire up grills and lay out tailgating spreads to welcome their graduates back to campus on Homecoming Day, Oct. 28.
     Meanwhile the campus' Wesley Foundation Methodist Ministry is celebrating its 50th anniversary during Homecoming week and the Spirit of the Southland band is inviting former musicians to relive their marching days in a pre-game performance on the Strawberry Stadium field.
    "Homecoming will be a great time for graduates to reconnect with friends and faculty and share in the day's special Southeastern spirit," said Alumni Association Reunion Coordinator Julie Perise.
     In addition to the tailgate reunions, she said alumni are invited to view the annual parade which will role from campus to downtown Hammond and back again at 3 p.m. and to pack Strawberry Stadium when the Lions take on Southland Conference foe Stephen F. Austin at 7 p.m. in a game that will be televised on Fox Sports Southwest.
     "Gold is the color of the day!" Perise said. "We want to fill the stands with a sea of that bright color. So wear your gold shirts, tailgate and visit with your friends, enjoy the parade - and cheer on the Lions!"
     Perise said academic college tailgating reunions will take place at various times and locations throughout the day. While the colleges have sent out invitation letters targeting specific alumni classes or groups, all alumni, along with their families and friends, are welcome to join in the Homecoming festivities.
     The College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences and the College of Science and Technology are both tailgating in Azalea Circle in front of Pursley Hall, which some alumni will remember as the "Chemistry and Physics Building."
     Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences will offer jambalaya and other treats from 1-3 p.m. while Science and Technology will repeat the Homecoming tailgating tradition the college began last year by hosting a pig roast and barbecue from 1-6 p.m. "It was a great success, and we expect it to be an even greater success this year," said Dean Dan McCarthy.
     The College of Nursing and Health Sciences is gathering adjacent to Mims Hall on the corner of North Oak and Western from 1-3 p.m., where graduates can enjoy barbecue and visit with faculty from college's departments.
     The College of Education and Human Development will serve up "made-on-the-spot" jambalaya beginning at 2:30 p.m. on Western Ave. across from Garrett Hall, said Dean Diane Allen. "The smell alone will be worth the trip!" she said.
     The College of Business will also tailgate near Garrett Hall from 4-5:30 p.m. Allen and College of Business Dean Randy Settoon both point out that their locations will offer a good vantage point for the 3 p.m. parade watching.
     The Division of General Studies is inviting students and alumni to gather near McGehee Hall from 5-6:30 p.m. to "reconnect and share stories of days gone by," said Dean Barbara Allen.
     The Wesley Foundation United Methodist Campus Ministry, which is celebrating 50 years of ministry at Southeastern, will host a reunion for all members and former members at the Wesley Foundation on Dakota Street from 6-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 26. Following the reunion there will be a free concert in the War Memorial Student Union ballroom from 8-9:30 p.m. by Psalm 98:4, a Christian band from Paducah, Ky. The Wesley Foundation will also tailgate in Friendship Circle from 1-6 p.m. on Saturday.
     Former members of the Spirit of the Southland band and the Students of the States plan tuneful Homecoming reunions. At 9 a.m. on Homecoming Day, the alumni musicians will gather for a rehearsal in the Music Annex band room, and the Students of the States in annex choir room. The groups will also rehearse on the field at 10 a.m., and join the current band members for a pre-game performance at 6:30 p.m. For more information, band and Students of the States alumni can contact Bob Priez at
     The ringing of the university's spirit bell will call fans into the stadium for the pre-game festivities at 6:30 p.m. In addition to the Spirit of the Southland band and its alumni, the festivities will include warm-up cheers with the cheerleading squad, performances by the Lionettes, and a parade of Southeastern student athletes.
     Many fraternities and sororities plan to tailgate in Friendship Circle on game day and will welcome visits by their alumni.

Kent Neuerburg Neuerburg to head Honors Program
Kent Neuerburg, associate professor of mathematics, has been appointed director of Southeastern's Honors Program.
      Neuerburg, who joined the Southeastern faculty in 1998, will assume administrative duties for the program in the spring 2007 semester.
     Formed in 1979 to provide outstanding students with special courses and curricula, Southeastern expanded the program in 2002 by instituting honors curriculum paths in all degree programs. Currently nearly 300 students are enrolled in the program, which offers students classes of reduced size and a variety of awards for achievement and completion of the honors curricula.
     "We are pleased to have a scholar such as Dr. Neuerburg assume the leadership of Southeastern's Honors Program," said Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs John Crain. "We anticipate that he and the Honors Committee will advance a number of new initiatives designed to move the Honors Program to a new level that reflects the academic advancements made at Southeastern over the last several years."
     "I hope to build on the level of success the Honors Program has achieved in recent years and to continue to attract some of the best students from the region," Neuerburg said. "Southeastern offers students great opportunities - quality teaching, small class sizes, quality interaction with faculty who are recognized leaders in their disciplines, numerous undergraduate research opportunities, and outstanding cultural activities. The Honors Program is certainly one of those opportunities."
     Prior to joining Southeastern, Neuerburg taught mathematics at the University of Missouri, Columbia, the University of California, Davis, and Consumnes River College in Sacramento.
     Neuerburg earned his undergraduate degree and the master of arts in teaching mathematics degree at the University of California, Davis. He received a master of arts and doctorate in mathematics from the University of Missouri.

John Vickery Grant Shaud Zagreb Saxophone Quartet Timothy Gautreaux  

Caine Mutiny Court-Martial, Zagreb Saxophone Quartet highlight Fanfare's fourth week
A brilliant courtroom tragedy and a high-energy quartet of saxophonists highlight the fourth week of Fanfare.
     The Zagreb Saxophone Quartet, four graduates of the Zagreb Academy of Music in Croatia, will present a varied program of Baroque transcriptions and new works by Croatian composers at the Pottle Music Building Auditorium on Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m. The acclaimed quartet has performed in more than 16 countries, winning praise from critics and audiences alike.
     Internationally renowned saxophonist Eugene Rousseau will join the quartet as guest artist. A soloist with the Southeastern Wind Symphony during Fanfare 2005, Rousseau served for 20 years as chief consultant for saxophone development and research with the Yamaha Corporation and is Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Indiana University.
     Tickets are $15, adults; $12, senior citizens, Southeastern faculty, staff and alumni; $8, non-Southeastern students; and $5, Southeastern students.
     L.A. Theatre Works will bring Herman Wouk's acclaimed World War II drama to the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts stage on Oct. 24 at 7:30 p.m. Based on Wouk's 1952 Pulitzer Prize winning novel, "The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial" is a brilliant courtroom tragedy. The semi-staged production, with live sound effects, includes an all-star cast drawn from the ranks of LATW regulars.
     The Fanfare production will star John Vickery as Captain Queeg and Grant Shaud as Lt. Barney Greenwald, the attorney for the "USS Caine" crew. Vickery's stage credits include portraying "Scar" in "The Lion King" on Broadway. In addition to extensive off-Broadway work, he has also appeared in episodes of television programs such as "Without a Trace," "Frasier," "NYPD Blue," and "Judging Amy." Shaud appeared on Broadway in "Torch Song Trilogy," and was a series regular on the "Murphy Brown," "Oliver Beene," and "Madigan Men" television series. He has appeared in films such as "The Distinguished Gentleman," "Wall Street," Men Seeking Women," "Bad Dates," "Waltzing Anna," and HBO's "From the Earth to the Moon."
     "The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial" is a fictitious account of the "USS Caine," Captain Queeg, and the mutinous acts aboard the ship rocked by a typhoon during WWII. Wouk's masterful courtroom drama was unprecedented in its harsh look at the "my country right or wrong" standard of military life. Queeg is one of the most famous characters of the American stage and screen, having been played by both Henry Fonda and Humphrey Bogart.
     "The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial" brilliantly rolls out the conflicts within the primary characters, showing that very little in war is a certainty -- and the line between sane and insane is sometimes fuzzy at best.
      LATW's recording of "The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial" was broadcast to 52 countries over The Voice of America and later aired on NPR stations nationwide.
     Under the leadership of Producing Director Susan Albert Loewenberg, LATW has been the foremost radio theater company in the United States for more than two decades. Broadcast in America on NPR and internationally on the BBC, CBC, and Voice of America, as well as on X-M Satellite, LATW has single-handedly brought live theater into the homes of millions. The company also performs a hugely successful series of live radio theater presentations each season in Los Angeles. On the road, LATW has given live radio theater performances in Chicago, Washington, Boston, New York and Austin.
     Tickets for "The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial" are $38, Orchestra 1 and Loge; $32, Orchestra 2 and Balcony 1; and $25, Orchestra 3 and Balcony 2. Since the show is also part of the Columbia 2006-07 season, ticket availability may be limited.
     Also during Fanfare's fourth week
     -- "Louisiana Writers Reading the South" will feature one of Southeastern's most widely published creative writers, writer-in-residence Timothy Gautreaux. Gautreaux, whose acclaimed novels and stories capture the strength, resiliency and joy found in the lives of ordinary, modern-day Cajuns, will read from his works on Oct. 23 at noon in D Vickers Hall, room 125. The event is free.
     -- on Oct. 25 at 1 p.m. in Pottle Auditorium, Southeastern history professor Peter Petrakis will present "All Too Visible: Politics and Art in Ralph Ellison and Albert Camus" as part of the Department of History and Political Sciences' "Then and Now" Fanfare lecture series. Petrakis, a political theorist, will offer his latest analysis of "dangerous" art, which examines the politicization of two of the 20th century's foremost novelists.
     -- the Italian film "Bitter Rice" will be shown on Oct. 25 at 3:30 p.m. in the Music Recital Hall. Directed by Giuseppe De Santis, "Bitter Rice" is a story of women laboring in the rice fields of Italy.

Rated PG 13, the free film has English subtitles.
     -- the always-popular Southeastern Wind Symphony presents a concert titled "Euphoria!" on Oct. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts. Glen J.

     -- the annual Sweet Home Folklife Days at the Sweet Home Baptist Church Museum on Hwy. 51 North in Kentwood joins the Fanfare schedule on Oct. 27-28 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Under the theme "Our Music Goes On," the annual celebration of Kentwood's African American community includes hands-on demonstrations of story telling, home remedies, hair styling, childhood games and music, buggy rides along a scenic nature trail and a traditional baptism at the "baptizing hole" -- Cool's Creek. Traditional African American foods will be offered for sale and children can "meet and greet" a parade of heroes.

The Southeastern Chamber Orchestra joins the Fanfare 2006 arts lineup on Oct. 30 with a concert of Beethoven and American pops.

     Under the baton of director Yakov Voldman, the orchestra also will perform Beethoven's "Egmont Overture," and works by American composers such as Aron Copland and Leroy Anderson.
     "This will be a very entertaining concert that will showcase the technical ability of all of our orchestra members," Voldman said. "And there will be a surprise soloist with a special treat at the end."
     Voldman is looking forward to welcoming the soloists, especially Andrusenko, a violinist with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra since 2005.
     "He is the son of my best friend and grew up with my own son," Voldman explained. "I was his first teacher. Today, he plays with the best orchestra in the world."
     Andrusenko has been a full time member of the Vienna Opera and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra since 2005. He also performs an extensive repertoire of chamber music with outstanding musicians such as cellist Orfeo Mandozzi, clarinetist Kurt Franz Schmid and pianist Marino Formenti.
     Born in Kishineu, Moldova, Andrusenko received his music education in Kiev. His substantial solo repertoire has led to numerous concerts worldwide and in Kiev, Moscow, and other cities in the former Soviet Union.

In 1996 he became a member of the Niederösterreichischen Tonkünstlerorchester and in 2004 completed his violin studies with distinction at the Viena Conservatory.
     Heralded as a "charismatic performer" who captivates his audiences with his artistry, virtuosity, sensitivity and passion, cellist Biryukov represents a new generation of creative professional musicians whose artistic level is recognized not only by awards, but also by a worldwide audience.
     Known for his "superb artistry, passion and individuality," Biryukov has performed in more than 20 countries, including countries in the former USSR, Europe and the United States. He has collaborated with internationally renowned artists such as Midori, Kirill Rodin and members of the Ysaye String Quartet, and has been a master teacher in music festivals in Europe and Russia. He also has held teaching positions at the Ippolitov-Ivanov State Institute of Music in Moscow and the Music Academy in Lovran, Croatia.

The crowd cheers the Lion's Northwestern State victoryA message from Coach Roland: Thanks for the cheers!
Dear Lion Football Fans:
My staff and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the tremendous job you did in supporting our team in our overtime victory against the Northwestern State Demons on Saturday evening, October 14, 2006, in Strawberry Stadium.
     We were thoroughly impressed by the noise that you generated during the game. There were a number of instances where your enthusiasm helped us gain victory. I believe our first interception was a result of the crowd being so boisterous that their team was distracted.
     Late in the game Northwestern was called for illegal motion and off sides. I sincerely think those penalties were caused because their team could not hear the signals being called by the quarterback.
     It is obvious that you are very knowledgeable concerning when to cheer, and how to cheer. I think our cheerleaders do a good job of getting the crowd involved, but their success depends on your willingness to participate. I believe we have the best home crowd in the Southland Conference. I think as more teams come in to play here they will believe that too.
     We are in the midst of a very tough Southland Conference race with four games remaining. Our next home game is Homecoming, Oct. 28. I trust we can count on you to be with us for a 7 p.m. kickoff against Stephen F. Austin. Come early for the festivities and let's fill the stadium. As fans, you play a large role in our success. Let's keep it rolling.
     Thanks again for your great support.
Dennis Roland
Head Football Coach

The two-day session was the final workshop in a series of five major training workshops scheduled for 2006 across the country. Berthelot, instructor of kinesiology and certified athletic trainer at SLU, represented one of 17 other chapters from across the nation to share ideas and to learn proven strategies for making their respective chapters operate at maximum efficiency. Each participant was provided financial support by Phi Kappa Phi Headquarters to attend the workshop.
