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
"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
"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

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.
||Zagreb Saxophone Quartet
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,

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.
