     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s annual “Rock ‘n Roar” is scheduled in the Student Union from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24, and promises to be a fun-filled day for students and local families. Held in conjunction each year with the District 8 Literary Rally, Rock n’ Roar is open to the public.
