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
"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
Southeastern will host its final freshman
orientation program Aug. 13-14. Fall semester classes begin on Monday,
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

What says "Southeastern" to
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
The 42 specially formatted photos and
four icons, which can be accessed at www.selu.edu/resources/media/wallpaper,
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
"I think it would be a great boost
to student and campus morale if Southeastern had something like this,"
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
at Hot August Night
Southeastern brought green and gold spirit to the Hammond Downtown
Development District's annual "Hot August Night" on Aug.
17, staging a pep rally touting the upcoming Lions football season.
Head Football Coach Mike Lucas revved up the crowd with a little help
from the Spirit of the Southland marching band and cheerleaders. The
Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts, assisted by many Southeastern
faculty, also hosted examples of fun and creative interactive displays
that will be housed in the city's planned children's museum.
Fanfare/Columbia Director Donna Gay Anderson, President Randy Moffett
and Public Information Office Director Rene Abadie were among the
administrators and faculty handing out water to students on the first
day of classes, Aug. 20.
'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.
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
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
"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 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
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 columbiatheatre.org
or at the Columbia/Fanfare box office, 220 E. Thomas Street, 985-543-4371.
Box office hours are noon to 5 p.m., weekdays.

Southeastern Channel won four national Telly Awards for promotional
spot animation and editing. From left to right are Steve Zaffuto,
Southeastern Channel general manager Rick Settoon, and Josh Kapusinski.
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
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 www.selu.edu/tv.
Community, campus singers invited to join
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,
email@example.com or 985-549-5557.
