Freshmen class could break record again
Southeastern is on track to enroll another record-breaking freshman class this fall semester. Last fall, nearly 3,000 new freshmen enrolled at the north shore university, the largest freshman class in Southeastern's history. While some speculated that the record freshmen enrollment was attributed to students displaced to the north shore as a result of Hurricane Katrina, this year's anticipated repeat record suggests a more permanent trend, said Stephen Soutullo, dean of Enrollment Management at Southeastern.
     University officials attribute the back-to-back record freshman classes to long-term trends developing long before the arrival of Katrina.
     "At the start of the fall semester in 2005 before the hurricane, we had enrolled our largest freshman class ever, and we were the only four-year institution in Louisiana projecting an enrollment increase in new freshmen," said Soutullo. "Although we had instituted admission standards in the fall of 2000, like most other universities in Louisiana we were further increasing admission requirements in fall 2005. We had made extraordinary recruiting efforts to get the word out about our exceptional academic programs, as well as the student-oriented environment here at Southeastern."
     Despite the successful start to the 2005 academic year, Southeastern had nearly 2,000 students resign as a result of Katrina. In the weeks following the storm, the school also hosted nearly that many visiting students from south shore institutions that were forced to close for extended periods.
     "It was a challenging semester for the institution and many of the students," said President Randy Moffett. "Less than 1,000 of the 2,000 students who resigned from Southeastern following Katrina have ever returned; likewise, only a relatively modest number of the visiting students continued their education here as transfer students."
     Despite the hurricane-related disruptions, enrollment at Southeastern has continued to grow. "The extraordinary number of new students coming here clearly seems to reflect both the strong economic and population growth in our service region as well as increased interest in our institution and academic programs, particularly among academically well prepared students," said Moffett.
     By last year's Aug. 15 deadline, Southeastern received nearly 5,500 new student applications. "That target was passed months ago," said Soutullo. "This year's application deadline was moved up to Aug. 1 in order to allow us to better serve our student applicants. Despite the earlier deadline, student applications for this fall are well ahead of last year's final level."
     The I-12 corridor along the north shore is riding an unprecedented long-term growth trend, Moffett pointed out.
     "Southeastern is at the heart of the fastest-growing region of Louisiana," he said. "We are committed to providing exemplary educational and outreach services to this region. We've added a number of new degree programs and concentrations in recent years, and we anticipate adding several more in the months ahead. We've also significantly stepped up outreach activities, such as providing business and economic development assistance through our Southeast Louisiana Business Center. Southeastern's mission is to lead the educational, economic and cultural development of southeast Louisiana, and our faculty and staff are committed to doing exactly that."
     Southeastern will host its final freshman orientation program Aug. 13-14. Fall semester classes begin on Monday, Aug. 20.

Dr. Moffett at groundbreaking and stadium lights Southeastern powers up lights, 'digs in' for parking
Southeastern powered up Strawberry Stadium's new lights and formally broke ground for the new parking facility under construction next door at a ceremony at dusk on Aug. 15.
     The brief ceremony included remarks by President Randy Moffett, Director of Athletics Joel Erdmann, and representatives of the Student Government Association.
     Following the ceremony, Moffett flipped a switch to turn on the new stadium lights. As the lights warmed up to full power, campus and community members were invited to enjoy refreshments inside the stadium, where the university's cheerleaders, band members and Lion mascot Roomie cheered on the public's first opportunity to view the the full effect of the new lights.
     The new lighting system is more than three times brighter than the old lights, which served the 70-year-old stadium for decades. Four 100-foot specially engineered concrete light towers, each with 48 1,500-watt bulbs, will project more than 100 candle foot light power, as opposed to the old system's 35-40 candle foot lights.

Download your favorite symbol of Southeastern spirit
A little girl gives Roomie an affectionate pat on the nose; baseball players line the dugout fence at Alumni Field; mossy branches frame the Pottle Music Building; fluttering gold flags spell out L-I-O-N-S as cheerleaders dash across the Strawberry Stadium end zone.
     What says "Southeastern" to you?
     Students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends can now choose their favorite campus scene to display as "wallpaper" -- background photos on their computer desktops - and can select a university logo to use as a "buddy icon" for instant messaging programs.
     The 42 specially formatted photos and four icons, which can be accessed at, are the first of many more downloadable symbols of pride that will be available in the future, said Erin Moore, executive assistant to President Randy Moffett.
"We want to provide our technology-savvy students with ways in which they can show off their Lion pride," Moore said. In the works are other downloads such as music and cell phone wallpaper.
     The downloads, she said, "are a great way to show off what a wonderful campus we have. We hope everyone will take advantage of them."
     Moore worked with university Web Coordinator Amber Layton and Public Information Office photographer Randy Bergeron to get the new downloads on the university's web site in time for the beginning of the fall semester. Classes get underway on Aug. 20, while final registration is Aug. 13-15; students will begin moving into residential housing next week.
     Although the download link has only been "live" for about a week, Moore said she is already seeing the wallpaper on computers around campus.
     "I chose the cool nighttime clock image," she said, referring to the photo of the historic clock on McClimans Hall.
     An impetus for Moore in getting the downloads created was an e-mail from junior Mechelle Rouchon, an English major who works as a student consultant in the Southeastern Writing Center.
     "I think it would be a great boost to student and campus morale if Southeastern had something like this," Rochon wrote.
     Now, "I'm thrilled to find something I had been hoping for become a reality," Rouchon said. "As soon as I found the wallpapers I put one on my laptop. My favorites are the Southeastern clock and the aerial shot of Strawberry Stadium. I plan to use others as the semester progresses. I hope the appropriate people continue to update these pictures with other shots that make Southeastern stand out."
     Vice President for Student Affairs Marvin Yates selected a view of students strolling outside the War Memorial Student Union, "because the union is the campus' living room," he said. Senior education major Michael Kyles of Baton Rouge and Campus Activities Board (CAB) secretary Dawn Dottolo-Starkey were attracted to a night shot of the university's new Biology Building.
     "It has so much light in it and that's what Southeastern is - the light of Hammond," Kyles said. "It shows a beautiful part of the campus," added Dottolo-Starkey.
     Junior finance major Theron Beatie of Baton Rouge said his favorite wallpaper features an action shot of a Lion football player suspended in air while diving for the end zone. "I'm really excited about the football season," he explained. Sean Strahan, a senior history major from Bogalusa, selected basketball players huddled before a tip-off. "The picture shows the passion of the players for the game and for Southeastern," he said.
     "I tried every one of them," said CAB Coordinator Jason Leader. He settled on the cheerleaders parading flags in Strawberry Stadium "because it is really colorful -- and my icons show up on my desktop."
     Moore said she welcomes feedback on the new downloads. She can be contacted at

'Welcome Week' underway
Southeastern is welcoming back students "Southeastern style" with a week's worth of activities designed to help them settle in to a new semester and tune in to campus life.
     The Division of Student Affairs' annual "Welcome Week" kicked off on Sunday, Aug. 19, with "Strawberry Jam," a concert in Strawberry Stadium designed to welcome freshmen to campus and connect them with their new classmates and upperclassmen.
     To round up students for the concert, Southeastern's Lion mascot Roomie along with the Spirit of the Southland marching band and cheerleaders paraded from North Campus to Strawberry Stadium, where the popular local band Bag of Donuts will perform beginning at 6:30 p.m.
     Free t-shirts and decals were provided for freshmen, as well as hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos, soft drinks and strawberry ice cream. Students also participated in a contest to name the stadium's north end zone, the new free-admission student seating section. And they were treated to a "special guest performer," Football Head Coach Mike Lucas, who joined the band, playing a mean air guitar.
     To alleviate both the heat and first-day-of-class confusion, students will find water and information stations set up at key points on campus on Aug. 20-21. Southeastern administrators including President Randy Moffett plan to join other volunteers in handing out cool drinks and directions.
     "Southeastern is committed to getting students engaged and involved," Moffett said. "We strongly believe those students who participate in organizations and activities enjoy a value-added college life."
He urged both new freshmen and returning students to take advantage of the entertaining activities and events, and to use them as an opportunity to find out more about their options for involvement.
     On Monday Aug. 20 the Campus Activities Board gave away free bottled water and photo key chains from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the quad area near the War Memorial Student Union and new memorial fountain.
     Welcome Week activities also include:
     Tuesday, Aug. 21 -- During "Community Day," local retailers and restaurants will showcase their services and products from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the union mall, complete with coupons and free samples.
     Wednesday, Aug. 22 -- A Student Organization Fair from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the union mall will provide information on the campus' more than 100 student organizations. From 4-7 p.m. "Freshmen Hey Day" will feature a western barbecue theme with food, music, and photo opportunities.
     Thursday, Aug. 23 - "Hot Dog You're Here" will include complimentary hot dogs, drinks and chips, free scantron test forms, and a karaoke contest from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Student Union Mall. Students are encouraged to wear the university's colors and stop by the mall for a green and gold giveaway.

Abandoned bicycle policy
Southeastern has developed a new "move it or lose it" policy, effective Aug. 1, for bicycles abandoned on campus.
     Vice President for Student Affairs Marvin Yates said the new policy targets bicycles that have been stationary throughout a school semester, becoming both an eyesore and a safety hazard.
     "These abandoned bicycles littering the campus diminishes the aesthetic values we have created and represents a safety concern for passersby who may come in to contact with the metal frames or spokes," Yates said.
     Yates said 14 days prior to the end of each semester, abandoned bicycles will be tagged with a bright green tag. The tags will advise the owner of the abandoned status of the bicycle, the date it was tagged, and how to claim it. Owners will have 14 days to claim the bicycle.
     Bicycles deemed "unusable" because of missing parts, such as tires, rims, seat, chain, will be discarded. Usable bicycles will be logged and kept at the University Police Department for 30 days and advertised in the "Lion's Roar," the student newspaper, for two weeks. If unclaimed after an additional two weeks, the bicycle will be disposed of.
     For additional information, contact the Southeastern Police Department, (985) 549-2222.

Gregg AllmanRocker Gregg Allman headlines 22nd Fanfare season
Rock 'n Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman will headline the 22nd season of Fanfare, Southeastern's annual celebration of the arts, humanities and social sciences.
     Allman, who is both a founding member of the still-active and thriving Allman Brothers Band and a critically acclaimed solo talent, will perform at the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts Oct. 16 at 7:30 p.m. His concert will be one of the many films, recitals, plays, musicals, dance concerts, lectures and community events offered during the arts festival, which in turn is the "opening act" for the year-long entertainment season of the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts.
     It has been a long-standing tradition to open Fanfare with music and socializing at Cate Square, the small park in the heart of Hammond and a few blocks south of campus.
     Last year, however, Fanfare's usual "brown bag" lunchtime concert was on hiatus as the city redesigned the historic park, and Fanfare launched the new entertainment season by dedicating the performance hall of the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts to the late Sen. John J. Hainkel Jr., who helped make the restoration of the university's downtown theater possible.
     However, the park's brand new look is now complete, so Fanfare will return to Cate Square not just to kick off the October-long festival but also to help Hammond's Downtown Development District throw a gala community picnic to dedicate the refurbished park.
     From 2-4 p.m. on Sept. 30, one and all are invited to enjoy tunes by the Southeastern Jazz Combos and a barbershop quartet and treats such as cotton candy and lemonade (available at the turn-of-the-century price of a nickel). Children can play games that never grow old, such as musical chairs and pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey.
     Columbia season tickets will be through Aug. 31. Individual event tickets (including Fanfare tickets) go on sale beginning Sept. 5. Tickets can be purchased at or at the Columbia/Fanfare box office, 220 E. Thomas Street, 985-543-4371. Box office hours are noon to 5 p.m., weekdays.

Channel wins four Telly awards
Four Southeastern Channel promotional spots have won national Telly Awards for 2007.
     Promotional spots for "The Florida Parish Chronicles", "Native Sounds" and "Current Events" won first-place Silver and second-place Bronze Telly Awards for Southeastern's educational cable channel airing on Charter Cable Channel 18.
     The Telly Awards is the premier competition honoring local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, and video and film productions. The Telly Awards showcase the best work of television stations, production companies, cable operators and advertising agencies throughout the world. The 28th annual awards competition received more than 13,000 entries nationally and internationally.
     "The Florida Parish Chronicles" promo took a first-place Silver Telly for animation and a second-place Bronze Telly for editing. The promo was conceptualized, designed, produced and edited by channel staff member Josh Kapusinski.
     A promotional spot for "Native Sounds," a program spotlighting regional blues artists, and the "Current Events" spot, which promotes a variety of national news, news talk, educational, and public affairs programs airing on the channel, both received a Bronze Telly in the animation category. Both spots were conceptualized, designed, produced and edited by Steve Zaffuto, the channel's operations manager.
     "It's a great honor for the Southeastern Channel to win these international Telly Awards as it reflects the high quality of our production," said channel General Manager Rick Settoon. "The recognition of Steve and Josh is much-deserved. Their editing, graphics and animation achieve major network-level quality. It's the fruit of their hard work, cutting-edge talent, and high artistic and technical standards."
     Kapusinski's "Florida Parish Chronicles" promo previously won a 2006 Emmy Award in the Suncoast Region, which represents the southeastern United States. The spot uses two-dimensional animation in which figures from old drawings and sketches are cut out and then manipulated in a three-dimensional space, a map of Louisiana. The map itself took many days to re-create.
     "The color scheme was also important in designing the spot," Kapusinski said. "Aside from there being the delicate mix of color and black and white, I made the map with lighter, pastel tones to have the attention go to the black and white figures, which are of higher contrast, and therefore, stand out."
The result of the innovative, ambitious project is a unique appearance.
     "When people see something different, they usually remember it. And I think that makes this particular spot very effective," Kapusinski said.
     Zaffuto's "Native Sounds" and "Current Events" spots were a result of his own experimentation with combining "flat" two-dimensional graphics with stylized three-dimensional elements and, according to Zaffuto, "manipulating them in a manner that hopefully creates the impression of a seamless progression of events."
     "It's already rewarding to work in an environment where you have the freedom to explore and perfect new graphics techniques and concepts," Zaffuto said. "Gaining recognition for that type of work is really a bonus."
     The Southeastern Channel has won more than 40 national and international awards since went on air four years ago. The channel can be seen on Charter Cable Channel 18 in Tangipahoa, St. Tammany and Livingston parishes; Channel 17 in Washington Parish; and online at

Community, campus singers invited to join choirs
Singers from the campus and community are invited to join Southeastern's University Chorus and the Northshore Chorale, which will begin fall rehearsals on Tuesday, Aug. 21.
     The non-audition choirs, which combine their voices in popular concerts each semester, will meet each Tuesday from 7-9 p.m. in the Music Annex choral room (room 165A), said Alissa Rowe, director of choral activity in Southeastern's Department of Music and Dramatic Arts.
     "We are planning a holiday candlelight concert this fall," Rowe said. "We are performing Randal Allan Bass's 'Feast of Carols' with full orchestra and other holiday favorites and choral standards by Brahms and Handel."
     With more than 100 singers representing many university majors and community professions, these ensembles regularly perform major works with professional orchestras and soloists. In 2004, the University Chorus and Northshore Chorale performed two patriotic choruses with the Southeastern Wind Symphony at the Columbia Theater for the Performing Arts. During the past two years, the choirs have performed Samuel Barber's 'Prayers of Kierkergaard,' W.A. Mozart's 'Coronation Mass' and Durufle's 'Requiem.'
     "Choral singing at Southeastern is enjoyed by music majors and non-majors alike in a variety of ensembles," Rowe said. "You do not have to audition for the University Chorus and Northshore Chorale. Just come to the first rehearsal. Everyone who loves to sing is welcome."
     For more information, contact Rowe, or 985-549-5557.
