2020 Le Souvenir

Page 1



Like the rest of Louisiana, America and the world, the Le Souvenir yearbook production has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 12, 2020, Southeastern Louisiana University announced that it would transition from traditional, in-person classes to solely virtual, online courses. The administration told students, faculty and staff to work from home. All athletic games and campus events that were meant to anchor the Spring 2020 semester were effectively canceled. What was first thought to be a shortterm inconvenience that would last two weeks turned into a worldwide health crisis that is continuing to affect people at the time of publication.

Lion Statue Big, bronze and weighing in at 800 pounds.

was a platform back then, as well.

These words describe the newest statue on campus, a lion funded by the Student Government Association and unveiled on August 29, 2019, before the first home football game of the season. The nearly life-size lion, which stands 65 inches tall and 82 inches wide, was introduced to campus following years of advocacy by student leaders for the project.

Then this year, it was still something that I ran on. So, it’s always been a topic of discussion for me. It’s always been, ‘Why not?’”

Richard Davis, Jr., the 2018-2019 SGA president, talked about what inspired the statue. “The motivation to create a lion statue on campus has been the idea of many students over the past several years, especially in the Student Government Association,” Davis shared. “However, the idea was eventually pushed forward and manifested by the 20172018 SGA president, Seth Leto. He wanted a space on campus where students and alumni alike could go to and create lasting traditions.” SGA initially set aside the funding for the multi-year project in 2018. Leto, the then-SGA President, shared why he was a proponent of the statue. “It has been an issue for a long time,” Leto said. “It’s been talked about by past administrations. It’s been talked about by some students. So, it was always something I wanted to do when I ran for president two years ago, and I unfortunately lost, but that

Upon completing the statue in the summer of 2019, it was placed at the western end of Friendship Circle and originally gazed towards Friendship Oak. However, shortly after the unveiling, the University decided to reorient the statue to look towards Strawberry Stadium. Matt Glen, the Utah-based sculptor who made the lion, talked about the creation process. “Every structure is a project deserving of the highest importance,” Glen said. “From research and planning through sculpting and molding to the final casting of bronze from wax replicas, the process for creating bronze statues is intense. Each step builds upon the last and is its piece of brilliance simultaneously. The intricate process is as high a wonder as the finished product is magnificent.” The artist went on to compliment the university for selecting his company, Big Statues. “SLU’s investment in one of the best sculptures and memorial names in the country is a pretty big deal,” Glen commended. “Roomie has been the cornerstone of everything SLU prides itself within its students, faculty, staff and fanatics.”

SGA Leadership President

Vice President

Every year, the student body elects three students to serve as officers of the Student Government Association. The “Big Three” are tasked with representing the student body and advocating for ways to improve student life and the campus itself. This year, campaigns and elections had to be held virtually, as students had already left campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Voting was held online from Apr. 20-22. The winners were announced on Facebook and Instagram Live on Apr. 22. L’Oreal Williams, a junior business administration major, was elected SGA President, replacing Karley Bordelon. Williams, who previously served as SGA Vice President, is being succeeded by Darnell Butler, Jr., a junior business administration major. Madison Sunde, a sophomore English major, replaced Leah Cross as SGA Chief Justice. Williams’ experience with SGA has given her the chance to step into a leadership role.

Chief Justice

“Being a part of the Student Government Association has given me many opportunities to travel, make connections and grow as a leader,” Williams shared. “SGA is more than an organization; it is a family.” For Butler, he sees SGA as an opportunity to serve the student body and be a positive influence. “What SGA means to me is an opportunity to be a voice and work towards the betterment of the entire student body,” Butler said. “SGA serves as a great deal for anyone. Being able to connect with a diversity of students and make a positive difference is very meaningful.” Sunde explained how her position within SGA allowed her to discover her potential as a leader. “SGA, to me, means growth,” Sunde said. “In this organization, I have learned how to become a better leader by identifying my strengths and weaknesses. I am so excited to continue to serve this student body and our community in the Chief Justice position.”

DSA MAn of the year

Joshua Ballard A rich involvement in extracurricular activities and community service made Joshua Ballard, a junior marketing major, conspicuous for the title of the 2020 Division of Student Affairs (DSA) Outstanding Man of the Year award. In addition to a multitude of current activities, the extrovert has served as the vice president of recruitment for the Interfraternity Council, a committee member of the Campus Activities Board and an Eagle Scout for the Boy Scouts of America. This past year, he served as the vice president for Delta Tau Delta, having served as the chaplain and community service chairman. Ballard believes that the previous leadership experience he had with Delta Tau Delta benefited not only himself but the rest of the fraternity once he became vice president. “Having that past position of being a community services chairman helped me learn a lot about what I needed to know as vice president, but it was also one of my passions,” Ballard explained. “I know that if I can bring to light my passion for serving the community, it brings out the best in those around me, and that’s what it did in the fraternity.” With a full plate of roles to play, Ballard talked about how he had to use effective time management strategy to balance his social responsibilities with his schoolwork.

“I learned very quickly after my first year of college that I was going to have to put in more work,” Ballard said. “I realized every single day that I wake up that I have to make that day better than yesterday and continue to push with a purpose. So, that requires me to have a calendar laid out with everything that I have planned that month.” Outside of responsibilities for the university, Ballard serves as a coach for Special Olympics Louisiana. He grew up participating with the organization because of his older brother Christopher, who is diagnosed with Down syndrome. He learned there how to help special needs children create lasting memories with the sport. “One of the biggest things I’ve learned is that they want to be just like everybody else,” Ballard said. “You need to treat them just like everybody else. When they’re competing out there, they don’t want you to let them win. They want you to compete just as hard as them.” Dr. Eric Summers, vice president for student affairs, believes that Ballard has the right qualities for his achievement. “Personally, I have never seen Josh without a positive attitude and a can-do spirit,” Summers said. “From his work at the REC to his community service and involvement with Delta Tau Delta, he truly embodies what it means to be a Lion.”

DSA woman of the year

Jessica Litolff Running, biking, making stained glass windows and mowing the lawn are all among the eclectic mix of favorite pastimes for the 2020 Division of Student Affairs (DSA) Outstanding Woman of the Year, Jessica Litolff. In addition to her many hobbies, the senior accounting major likes to stay busy with her active leadership in Alpha Omicron Pi, the Southeastern Collegiate Panhellenic Council, the Student Government Association, the Catholic Student Association and the Honors Club, besides her involvement in eight other extracurricular groups. Because DSA conducted the awards ceremony via social media due to the coronavirus pandemic, Litolff became aware of her distinction in a unique way. Regardless, she was still thankful for the virtual recognition. “Receiving the award virtually was different but it did not mean any less,” Litolff shared. “I was walking my dog when I got a GroupMe notification saying congrats, so I looked up Dr. Summer’s Instagram account and saw the video. I was shocked by how many people shared the video and texted me. My phone was hot by the end of the night, but I appreciated all the love and support.” The distinction was significant for Litolff, who had narrowly missed being the DSA award recipient for Freshman Honors Student of the Year a couple of years prior.

Alana Marcello, interim assistant director of fraternity and sorority life, congratulated Litolff on her achievement. “Jessica truly exemplifies what it means to be a student at Southeastern, from her leadership involvement, her community involvement, her academics—she really is that all around student leader,” Marcello shared in the virtual announcement of Litolff’s award. Marcello talked about Litolff’s good character and worthiness for the distinction. “One key part of being a leader is understanding that sometimes you have to put others before yourself, and Jessica really does a fantastic job of that through every single position she’s a part of. Through being Panhellenic president, she really puts the community before herself as president, and also through SGA she puts the university first,” Marcello said. Britanny Carter, Kappa Tau chapter advisor for Alpha Omicron Pi, described Litolff’s character in the announcement video, as well. Carter said, “She truly enjoys every single opportunity that she’s been granted, and she faces and rises to every challenge that has come before her.” “It was very affirming and makes me want to work even harder to serve and make an impact,” Litolff said.

Homecoming Gets Real From Oct. 7-12, Southeastern’s campus was bursting with Lion pride as students, faculty, staff and alumni came together to celebrate the university’s Homecoming traditions. The 2019 Homecoming theme, “Keepin’ it Real with Roomie,” was chosen to incorporate ideas relating to reality television into the annual banner competition, lip-sync competition, department decorating competition and Homecoming parade. Students and organizations rose to the challenge with banners that mimicked popular TV shows like “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” “The Bachelorette,” “Dance Moms,” and more. Chelsey Blank, coordinator for the 2019 Homecoming committee, explained how the theme was picked months before it was revealed to the student body.

HomecominG Court

After a week of Homecoming celebrations and events, members of the Homecoming court stood facing a stadium full of fans as they awaited the announcement of the 2019 Homecoming King and Queen. Prior to the Homecoming game, members of the court spent several weeks campaigning for the title of King or Queen. It all culminated at halftime during the Homecoming football game against Incarnate Word, when the students finally stepped onto the field of Strawberry Stadium to hear the results. Keenan Austin and Aesha Magee were crowned the 2019 Homecoming King and Queen by 2018 Homecoming Royalty Cedrick Dent, Jr. and Da Jon Beard. Magee recalled how she felt in the moments before her name was announced.

“Before I was crowned, I prayed to myself and reminded myself that the results, no matter what they were, did not define me in any way,” Magee shared. “I was prepared to be happy for any young woman that got the title. When I was announced, I was so overjoyed and could not believe it. I began to get emotional because it was such a huge honor.” Members of the queen court were Alanna Arceneaux, Jessica Litolff, Aesha Magee, Jordyn McKey, Kayla Monlyn, Cailin Sampey and Katherine Gunther. Members of the beau court were Keenan Austin, Cameron Duhon, Matthew Matherne, Celestin White, Jr., Darius Woodfork, Peyton Licciardi and Johnathan Zeringue.

ROTC The alumni chapter of the Southeastern ROTC was proud to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the corps’ establishment on campus this past fall.

is looking out for the current chapter at ROTC, which is amazing.” Gary Sandifer, a university ROTC alumnus that was instrumental in planning the event, was pleased with the turnout.

The golden celebration was held at the Oak Knoll Country Club on Oct. 10, 2019 and honored both new and original members of the university ROTC. Among the honors, a letter from Governor John Bel Edwards was presented, which gave special recognition to the alumni chapter. Michael Willis, on behalf of Congressman Ralph Abraham, also presented a flag to the group which had been flown over the U.S. capitol.

“We have probably about 45 here and the thing about this one that to me is so exciting—we have people from Delaware, Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, Florida that have come in specifically to town for Homecoming, for this event—that would not be here otherwise,” Sandifer said. “So, it’s really, really exciting. We actually have a couple here that were from the very first class in 1969.”

At the celebration, new members of the university ROTC were recognized for their outstanding merit. Cadet Abigail Cashio, a criminal justice major, cadet Precocia Parlow, an occupational safety, health and environment, as well as biological sciences double major, and cadet Hugo Lujano, a communication major, were all recognized for earning scholarships through the Southeastern ROTC alumni chapter.

Southeastern’s ROTC program was closed in 1995, but it was later reinstalled on campus in 2016. There are approximately 330 current members in the ROTC Alumni Chapter. Steve Worth, another alumnus who contributed to the reunion, explained that the anniversary event is just the beginning of a plan to increase ROTC support on campus.

Lujano described how he felt when he learned that he would be accepting the award.

“Our ultimate goal is to get our own program back here,” Worth shared, clarifying that Southeastern currently doesn’t have a full ROTC program. “We’re connected with Southern University right now. This event is part of the bigger picture of getting it back.”

“I was in shock just because I didn’t even think they were really looking at me or really paying attention,” Lujano explained. “But it means a whole lot just to know that the Alumni Association

KSLU A 10-watt transmitter turned off on the weekends and holidays.

“I started working at the station due to a lifelong dream,” Hughes began. “I wanted to let my personality shine on-air as brightly as the DJs I grew up idolizing. At the time, it was the career path of choice, but I’ve found it’s an amazing passion project. When I started, I had a lot to learn. Some things with the radio are obvious, the most obvious being, don’t turn on the mic unless you have something you know you and others would find interesting.”

That’s what the university’s radio station, KSLU, amounted to when founded in 1974. Since then, what began as a club has become a nationally acclaimed broadcast station equipped with a 3,000-watt transmitter and a tight-knit family circle. With their “45th Birthday Bash,” the station went all out to commemorate a near half-century legacy on November 11.

Hughes, who ran and produced a show with her husband, shared that the warm atmosphere was one of the best parts of her job.

Todd Delaney, former general manager of KSLU, attended the lively celebration, which filled the Student Union with cake and music. He noted how Bob Priez, one of the founders of KSLU, made the event memorable.

“Everyone was kind and did their part to keep the station running,” Hughes recalled. “Working with them built up a KSLU family. I have a feeling we will all remain in contact with each other over the years.”

“Bob was the person who got the station on the air,” Delaney said. “That is, he did all of the engineering and tech work to enable KSLU’s broadcast. It was a great honor to have him join us for the celebration of 45 years and to mark the beginning of another 45 years of KSLU. So, it’s not a regular thing. But, it was a wonderful thing, especially with all of the listeners that came out to celebrate with us, including Dr. Crain.”

Meanwhile, the faces of the current KSLU family continue to change. Deborah Wickham recently replaced Delaney as the new general manager, and the underwriting and development director was hired elsewhere. At the same time, Hughes has stepped away to pursue a career in library science.

The station has a lot to commemorate, too, according to Thora Hughes, a senior general studies major who spent four years with the station. Hughes reminisced on how she got involved at the radio station she grew to love.

“There are going to be a lot of changes, but the foundation laid by the students and staff who have been a part of the station through the years will always be in place, and the mission of KSLU will always be the same,” Hughes assured.

Poise The recognition of an urgent need within the community drove Janine Hatcher, a senior business administration major, to win the 60th sash and crown of Miss Southeastern. Originally from New Jersey, Hatcher moved to Virginia as a child and then moved again in 2018 to further her education in Louisiana. She explained that she had observed the same need for mentoring young adults everywhere by spending time in different parts of the country. “I got to see a lot of work my parents did with the community and working with city officials, working with the mayor, working with police officers and administration and school officials,” Hatcher said. “So, coming here, I came here for grad school, and I recognized that same work that needed to be done there needs to be done here. And the work here is pertinent, and it’s urgent.” The necessity to mentor young adults culminated in Hatcher’s platform to win her title: Respect Individual Potential—otherwise known as RIP. “RIP, we usually associate with ‘Rest In Peace,’” Hatcher explained. “I come from an area where adolescent violence, children’s suicide, the rate of non-graduating teens was an issue. We got tired of saying ‘RIP’ to the kids that were taking their lives or involved in violence and spent their life behind bars or didn’t graduate and didn’t reach their full potential.” Hatcher had begun her activism previously by becoming an active member of the Sons of Promise and Daughters of Destiny Mentorship Organization. She felt that she had a good chance of winning the Miss Southeastern title, which would allow her to further her philanthropy. “I knew I had a perfect opportunity of doing well,” Hatcher said. “And you do get nervous going on stage, even after you’ve had a rehearsal, even though you

know you’re more than qualified to be on that stage. Everybody gets nervous. I had nerves a little bit during talent. It’s just taking each phase of the competition one phase at a time and just being in the moment, not really worrying about what happened before or what’s happening after but just focusing on the moment that you’re in.” The White House declared a national emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic 112 days into her reign. Hatcher explained that she had been in the process of soliciting visits to local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at the time. She also had plans to talk to city officials about her platform. Even though the pandemic forced her to adjust some of these plans, Hatcher found that she could still learn something from the coronavirus outbreak. “The way in which I communicate has changed from direct communication to indirect communication, and what this whole thing has taught me — to be a leader you don’t always have to be seen in front of every person, you just still have to make sure your message is heard,” Hatcher said. “Even from far away.” The COVID-19 outbreak did not only change Hatcher’s methods of outreach. Because of it, the Miss Louisiana Organization decided to postpone the 2020 Miss Louisiana competition for a year. Now, Hatcher plans to compete at the state level in 2021, even after crowning a new Miss Southeastern. Consequently, both Hatcher and Miss Southeastern 2021 will have the chance to compete in the 2021 Miss Louisiana competition. “The amount of time I’ll be serving will be extended, which I’m happy about,” Hatcher shared. “I’m looking forward to crowning the next woman. As far as plans for next year, I plan to start a Master’s in business administration in the fall at Southeastern, so I’ll be here for that. I’m excited to use my scholarship towards that and to continue my year of service.”

Forged In Fire History Channel’s hit reality show, “Forged in Fire,” gave away its $10,000 prize to freshman industrial technology major and Loranger, LA, resident, Cade Jenkins, for his outstanding craftsmanship. The 18-year-old university student appeared on the 146th episode titled “French Pioneer Sword,” which pitted Jenkins against three other blade-smiths competing to recreate a historical weapon, the Rooster Head French Pioneer Sword. The show’s competition-style structure challenges four various metalworkers’ skills by challenging them to recreate an iconic historical weapon. The best of four in each episode takes home a $10,000 prize and the right to be called a “Forged in Fire” champion. Jenkins explained that his inspiration to enter the show began when he and his mother would watch the TV series together. “One day, my family and I were watching the show, and, as per usual, I was critiquing the contestants,” Jenkins said. “Suddenly, my mom told me that I should go on the show to show everyone how it is done. So, I looked up an e-mail address and went through the process to get on the show—which included an interview and sending in pictures of my work.”

The initial step of snapping pictures of his work led to what Jenkins would term the greatest experience of his life. “I competed against three great smiths and even better men,” Jenkins said. “We are still friends to this day. It was a huge challenge to complete, but in the end, it was so worth it.” The episode, which aired on Jan. 29, 2020, spotlights a talent that Jenkins has been nurturing for years. He shared that his interest in blacksmithing initially began at the age of 12. “I have wanted to be a blacksmith since I saw my grandfather doing it when I was a kid,” Jenkins shared. “My grandfather was a full-time blacksmith for almost 45 years”. Some might say that Jenkins’ dream has come true. In addition to taking over the family business, Jenkins Blacksmithing, he gained national exposure on the hit TV show with a viewership of 1.58 million. The “Forged in Fire” champion detailed his passion for blacksmithing. “I may be 18, but like every man, I still have a 13-year-old boy inside of me who loves fire and beating on things,” Jenkins said. “It is a passion of mine, and every project has its own little story because everything I make is made from scratch, by hand.”

Construction Several areas have undergone construction and renovation in order to make way for new spaces and to commemorate certain groups on campus. The Student Union Park is now home to a plaza that recognizes National Pan-Hellenic Council organizations. The NPHC is composed of nine student organizations, known as the “Divine Nine.” Eight of these nine organizations have chapters on Southeastern’s campus. The project began when Richard Davis, Jr., a former Student Government Association president, wanted to recognize the NPHC and its importance not only to himself, but to other students and alumni. “Beginning a couple of years ago when I was SGA Vice President and my predecessor Seth Leto was President, we were looking for a way to commemorate these organizations that have meant so much to so many students, including myself,” Davis said in a university press release. “This seemed like something that would showcase the pride and fraternity that the Black Greek organizations stand for.”

Changes are also being made to Tinsley Hall. Named after former university president Gladney J. Tinsley, the building is over 60 years old. The building used to be a space for classrooms, but it will now be an extension of the Center for Student Excellence. Lorrett Swank, chief student success officer for CSE, described what the CSE staff hopes to see in the newly renovated space. “Our vision for the space in Tinsley is for us to be able to expand services and to have space that is flexible and student-friendly,” Swank explained. “In addition to small group tutoring rooms, we will have multi-use spaces that we can adapt depending on student needs, utilizing student input to create an environment that is both welcoming and conductive for learning.” On the other side of campus, located near the SGA Drive entrance, Range Hall was demolished in the spring of 2020. The building previously housed Facility Planning as well as the Safety Office.

Mr.

Southeastern The title of Mr. Southeastern was one that the university had not recognized for over a decade.

Social Impact Statement, School Spirit and the Fundraiser Award.

Things changed in the fall semester, however, when Miss Southeastern 2019 Chelsey Blank resolved to bring back the chance for royalty among male students. The idea, which originated as a way to raise money for Blank’s own platform, culminated on Oct. 2, 2019 with the crowning of the first new Mr. Southeastern in 12 years: Brian Williams, a senior communication major.

A friend of Blank’s, Williams was glad to participate in the fundraiser, which wound up raising the majority of the $1,320 collected for Blank’s Down syndrome awareness platform during her reign. “Chelsey and I are good friends, and she really felt like I should do this,” Williams said. “I just wanted to do it because I love this school to death, and I wanted an opportunity to get to represent this school in the best way possible.”

Blank discussed the difficulties in bringing the event back to campus.

Williams talked about what it felt like to receive the title.

“When I decided to bring it back, there was no documentation of the one that had happened in 2007,” Blank said. “So, I had to just go from scratch and make it up on my own, and from there, it just kind of fell into place on its own. The contestants really helped put the pieces together.”

“It was unreal to me,” Williams recollected. “It felt like I was in a movie. It is really unexplainable. I remember when they were calling out the results—I felt like I had lost, and I was starting to accept that fact. When they announced that I had won, my jaw dropped. I thought to myself that there was no way this is happening. I was awestruck.”

The eleven pageant contestants competed in multiple categories, including an opening dance, answering an on-stage question, performing a talent and presenting their formal attire and social impact statement.

Blank expressed how proud she was of her friend and his treatment of his new role. “We only had a month together, and he surpassed all of my expectations of a Mr. SLU in that short amount of time,” Blank said. “He has continued to amaze me by continuing his involvement and showing the students that he is a friend they can look up to and count on. I know everyone else is just as proud of our Mr. SLU as I am.”

Before Williams was crowned, Jonathan Zeringue, a junior nursing major, Austin Noel, a senior biological sciences major and Jacob Summerville, a junior history and political science double major were named the first, second and third runner-up, respectively. Other awards included Best Hair, Best Talent,

A New Perspective College of Arts Humanities and Social Sciences

Home to the most departments of any college at the university, the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences offers 17 degree programs across a variety of subject fields. The annual Fanfare celebration of the arts, humanities and social sciences brought a series of lectures and performances to the campus in the month of October. The Vonnie Borden Theatre saw three theatrical productions as well as several dance performances, and art students showcased their work in the Contemporary Art Gallery. One of the college’s most notable alumni, “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts, began offering an internship that featured junior communication major Raychelle Riley in the university’s broadcasting program. Over the summer, Riley worked on the set of “Good Morning America” with Roberts and got to experience a professional production team in action. This year, the college had an additional responsibility to juggle eight weeks into the spring semester: figuring out how to move their face-toface classes to an online format. Like the rest of the university, this task, which was put in place to inhibit the spread of COVID-19, had to be met within five days. One of the college’s faculty, Director of Dance Keith “Skip” Costa, talked about the problems involved with having to move his classes online.

“Dance is a movement practice, so without everyone face-to-face, it is very difficult,” Costa shared. “Even with Zoom and other technologies, there are lag times as well as this personal motivation that only exists when your teacher is right in front of you, to give you corrections and help you reach your artistic goals.” One of the classes that Costa had to transition online was DNC 350, which he explained was a special topics class designed for graduating seniors to present their capstone dance productions. In addition to these capstones, a mainstage production scheduled for the spring was also postponed. To ensure that the postponed art forms would eventually be seen, the productions were rescheduled for the fall of 2020. The Vonnie Borden Theatre and the Contemporary Art Gallery also had to postpone shows that were originally scheduled for the spring. Dr. Lucia Harrison, department head for World Languages and Cultures, had a word for all Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences students. “This global crisis has affected everybody, but try to make the most of every moment,” Harrison said. “You will realize that you are in control of how you respond to any situation in your life.”

Close- Knit College of Business

Students and faculty of the College of Business recollected that the close-knit, family feel has been and continues to be the college’s most distinctive factor. This year alone witnessed the update of the Bloomberg lab, the addition of the Professional Sales Lab, the creation of two new data analytics and technology classes and the relocation of a finance classroom. Although the college’s accreditation, changing classes and updated technology constitute a large part of its focus, the college’s close-knit atmosphere stands out as a hallmark. David Faucheux, an instructor of marketing, commented on this characteristic. “It’s like one big family,” Faucheux said. “And one great thing about Southeastern, unlike big, large institutions, you get to know everyone. You get to recognize their face, you get to see them in the halls and you tell them ‘Hi,’ and you just walk by and you recognize the same people every day.” This atmosphere may be the reason for the increased enrollment in the college, which, according to Dr. Antoinette Phillips, dean of the College of Business, has grown 15% in the past five years. This statistic leaves a current total of about 2,100 students in the college, including MBA students. Jill Munchausen, an MBA student, plans on graduating in December and sitting for her CPA exam. She talked about the atmosphere of the college. “I feel like it truly is such a small and close-knit group and all of us are pretty much friends,”

Munchausen said. “If we ever have any concerns about an assignment or if we need clarification or if we just need help in any way, like ‘hey, can you help me out,’ then I feel like everyone’s really willing to help, because that’s one of the biggest assets in the business world, is your network and how you network well with others.” Stephanie Fos, a junior accounting major and former president of the College of Business Ambassadors, talked about how impressed she was by the way her peers and professors cared for her, especially after she dealt with hardships in her family life. “The whole team with the Ambassadors, they all understood what was going on,” Fos recalled. “Professors, they really care about the student and about what’s going on in their personal life. They’re not just there to give an education to these students. They’re really there looking out for you, and they become a part of your life.” Phillips talked about how important he felt the college’s hallmark of caring and concern was for students, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Our dominant strength is and has always been the connection with our students, that we care about our students,” Phillips said. “We have professors who care, we have classes that are not obnoxiously large, particularly as you get into your upper-level classes. And that makes me sad that we’re missing out on the end of this semester and the summer. It’s important for students to have that connection and I think our students do feel a connection. And that’s a good thing.”

Looking Forward College of Education

The future lies in teaching the next generation, which means that students from the university’s College of Education are always looking forward. Consisting of the Department of Teaching and Learning and the Department of Educational Leadership and Technology, the college allows students to engage in handson learning experiences that will prepare them for a career in schooling. Students are also instructed on the necessities of teaching. Dr. Paula Summers Calderon, dean of the College of Education, explained the difficulties that students face while enrolled in the college. “You have to be able to deliver science, social studies, English, P.E., foreign languages and music at an age-appropriate level,” Calderon said. “Not everyone is going to understand how you teach.” Calderon further explained the importance of how teachers deliver content, using herself as an example. “If I deliver it too low, then students won’t be challenged,” Calderon expressed. “If I deliver it at a too high of a level, then the students will be too challenged and may not succeed.” There are many different styles of teaching, according to Calderon, but teachers must

find a specific way of teaching that their class will understand. In addition to developing an efficient teaching style, the dean explained that future educators must also learn how to develop their self-discipline. “It is a challenge, but I think it is a good challenge,” Calderon said. “Students will have to make sure that they have time in their schedule to take on-campus classes and then drive to a school to observe, participate and deliver instructions.” Dr. Thomas DeVaney, head of the Department of Educational Leadership and Technology, agrees with Calderon that time management skills are vital for students within the College of Education. “In a lot of ways, it is a time challenge,” DeVaney agreed. “They have to adjust and figure out how to balance their full-time work and then take six hours of coursework.” Calderon shared a lesson she discovered during her time in the education profession. “I learned that other people are depending on you,” Calderon said. “Other people are depending on me. It does not matter their skin color, whether they are male or female, their social-economic status or their language abilities. All children can learn, and that is what we teach our teacher candidates.”

INNOVATION College of Nursing and Health Studies

Change, both voluntary and involuntary, defined the largest college of the university this year. With around 3,800 students enrolled, the College of Nursing and Health Sciences saw the addition of an online master’s degree in child life and an application for approval of a new master’s degree in population and health management. In addition, the college purchased a nearly $90,000 anatomage table, filled the position for a new department head of Kinesiology and Health Studies by hiring Dr. Charity Bryan, reviewed its curricula and modified several degrees. The college also submitted an application to the Louisiana Board of Regents for a telehealth certification. Dr. Ann Carruth, dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, believes that a greater emphasis on telehealth might be the next change for the college. “What we’re seeing as a result of our students is that counseling, for example, their students are getting their practicum hours through telehealth,” Carruth shared. “Our speech-language students are doing speech-pathology clinic hours and care through telehealth. Our nursing students are engaged in telehealth. So, it is something that I think will continue to be part of what we do in the college as we move forward, and it was already something that we were thinking about, but we will continue to do so.” This year also saw the establishment of the PreNursing Society as an official student organization. Founded by Jaydalyn Epps, a junior nursing major, this organization aims to bring nursing students together and foster support for each other. “It’s very hard, and as a nursing student, I go through it a lot myself, but just knowing that I have

a group of people who understand what I’m going through, it makes it way better – just being there and guiding someone else when I didn’t have it,” Epps stated. “I feel like this is a perfect chance to give somebody the opportunity to have someone. That motivation and support is the goal.” Perhaps the biggest change in the school year was the migration of all in-person classes to online classes to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Students now had to adapt to difficult and time-consuming tasks from their own homes instead of having inperson experiences. Dr. Darryl “Dari” Calamia, an instructor in the School of Nursing, believes that her department has adapted extremely well to the forced changes that this year brought. “The nursing department has fully embraced going online,” Calamia shared. “As nurses, we are trained to always expect the unexpected. It’s a principle I personally try to pass on to my students, as well. Nurses are extremely flexible, and this unprecedented transition is just a bump in the road to success. It’s the only approach to take when life throws us a curve.” Courtney Marks, a senior communication sciences and disorders major, wanted students in the college to be proud of how they have navigated the changes presented in the past year. “I would have students remember this year as the year of trials and tribulations,” Marks said. “We had to go through some major changes this year. This pandemic has caused so much chaos, but we have made it almost to the end, and we—students and faculty—should be proud of how far we have come in such a short time.”

Adapting

College of Science and Technology The College of Science and Technology strives to prepare students for careers by offering 11 degree programs housed within biological sciences, chemistry and physics, computer science, industrial and engineering technology and mathematics. The faculty focuses primarily on undergraduate education, enabling them to devote most of their resources to quality bachelor’s degrees. The effort to keep up with changing definitions of ‘quality,’ however, means being adaptable. Dr. Christopher Beachy, head of the biology department, spoke about how faculty members could use the characteristic of adaptability when shifted online during the COVID-19 outbreak. “For those who had a traditional course, let’s say for the big classrooms, most of those have switched over in terms of offering as much of their content online via study guides and enhanced PowerPoints, PowerPoints that have voice-overs,” Beachy shared. “In some cases, for some of our younger faculty who have grown up being more tech-savvy, they’re able to make it work well, where they’re getting students to interact with them all the time in class, and they know better ways of delivering material via screen sharing.” Dr. Daniel McCarthy, the dean of the College of Science and Technology, emphasized that the college prepares undergraduate students for their future careers by ensuring that the curricula are current. “All our programs that can be accredited are accredited,” McCarthy explained. “You don’t keep accreditation if you’re not

current. We have accreditation in computer science, chemistry, industrial technology and engineering technology, occupational safety– those are all that can get accredited and are accredited. There is also kind of a push to keep you current, because if you’re not current, if you’re teaching a computer program from the 1980s, you’re not going to get it.” The College of Science and Technology also offers outside organizations for students to join. One organization is Women in Technology, which works to represent women in industrial technology, engineering technology and computer science. Another group is The Lion’s Code, which helps get high school students involved in computer science and technology. “Within a matter of about a month, our faculty threw together this great camp, and we offered to about 30 students from all around the area an intensive coding camp for high school students grades 9-12,” McCarthy said. “It was a wonderful experience. The kids didn’t just learn how to code, but they also experienced how to do presentations, which is a big part of what you do learn here at school.” The college’s emphasis on undergraduate success helps prepare students for impactful careers, especially during a time where science and technology were under scrutiny in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. “Science and understanding, it has a profound implication on policies right now,” McCarthy informed. “I think science’s role in society is just unlike anywhere it’s been in humanity’s time right now, and so the understanding of that is critically important.”

Time for a reset The 2019-2020 season saw a reset for the Lions’ baseball team. The team finished the 2018-2019 season with a 33-27 record. Their season ended with a 6-3 loss to the University of Central Arkansas in the Southland Conference Tournament. This year, head coach Matt Riser had high hopes that his team would push forward and improve. Of the 37 players on the team this season, 14 were incoming freshmen, and 15 were transfers from outside of Southeastern, nine from a junior or community college and six from another Division 1 university. Riser talked about the potential these new players showed during their practices. “We have a good mix of transfers and a good mix of freshmen,” Riser explained. “To be completely honest with you, these guys have gone pretty hard this season. The fall training session, the early springs, and the intrasquad scrimmages all went really well. They run hard, and they work really hard. At the end of the day, that’s all you can ask for.” However, the team was not able to accomplish the record that Riser had hoped they would. After six wins and ten losses, the rest of the season was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the Southland Conference’s preseason poll, the team was predicted to have finished the conference in fourth place.

“You have to play the hand you are dealt,” Riser said. “It happened abruptly, and I think it took all by surprise. I tried to process it as quickly as possible and begin to find the positives in such an unprecedented time.” One positive was when the NCAA announced that all athletes would be granted an extra year of eligibility, allowing the members of the team another year to play and account for the season that they had lost. Junior pitcher Will Warren, who had led the team in saves and been tabbed No. 11 in the MLB draft prospect for the year, reflected on this season and his hopes for the future. “I now look at it as a reset button for the team,” Warren explained. “We didn’t start out the way we should have and we found out what our weaknesses were, and so now we fix them and we come back better and stronger.” Even though the NCAA made this exception for next year, Riser wanted the team to remember that things could have gone differently. “Remind yourself that it is a privilege to play this sport, and especially at this level,” Riser said. “This game can be taken away at any time so don’t take it for granted. Be sure to play every day as it could be your last. Don’t have any regrets and leave it all out there, every single day.”

Fresh Start With a team composed mostly of new players and a transition in leadership, the men’s basketball team suffered setbacks over the 2019-2020 season. Of the 14 players from this past season’s team, 10 were freshmen and sophomores. Patrick Schulte, assistant coach, talked about the main issue involved with building up a team of new players. “In college basketball, experience wins—you’re always trying to get older, and what I mean by that is, the more juniors and seniors you have, the better off you’re going to be,” Schulte said. “So, we knew we were going to be really up and down.” This past season also saw a new direction in coaching. David Keifer, who had been the associate head coach since 2016, replaced Jay Ladner as head coach when Ladner resigned in 2019. Schulte talked about how difficult a transition in coaches can be. “Coach Kiefer was here with Coach Ladner, but he runs things quite differently,” Schulte said. “So, all the guys that were here before are maybe used to the way that Coach Ladner was doing it. And now, Coach Kiefer has a different vision that fits his personality and what he wants his program to look like.” The team’s inexperience showed in their scores,

as they closed the season with an 8-23 record. In comparison, the previous year saw them finish with a 17-16 season. Despite the season’s outcomes, Jordan Brooks, assistant coach, felt proud that they had continued to practice with a positive attitude. “I liked seeing how they responded to adversity after every game,” Brooks said. “I feel very proud of their drive to come to every practice wanting to get better and keep improving. That was the most memorable thing about the team for me.” Schulte also expressed his admiration for the team’s motivation and perseverance. “The season didn’t go the way that we wanted it to, but they kept fighting throughout the year and never showed any quit,” Schulte said. “I was really proud of their resolve throughout the year and just not giving up and sticking with it.” Although the past season boasted challenges, Brooks feels that it sparked a new fire in the players. He hopes that those players, as well as new recruits, will be prepared to work hard next season. “Once everyone’s back together and everyone’s brought in and passing that winning mindset and that work ethic, that’s what’s going to be key in starting to build a winning program for next year,” Brooks said.

Perseverance The women’s basketball team powered through ups and downs over the past season, from a slow start which kicked it off, to the cancellation of the Southland Conference Women’s Basketball tournament. The team opened the season with one win, followed by four consecutive losses from Nov. 9-20. Then, they came back in full force to win the next three games, quickly entering a new losing streak which resulted in the team losing seven of the next nine games. When the spring semester began, however, the team turned things around by immediately scoring a landmark win against McNeese State University, which marked a new winning streak. Ayla Guzzardo, women’s basketball head coach, reminisced on her favorite moment from the past season. “The most memorable game for me was our McNeese game at home, because each of our players scored and contributed to our big win,” said Guzzardo. After beating McNeese, the team went on to beat Northwestern State University, the University of Central Arkansas, the University of New Orleans and the University of the Incarnate Word, rallying a five-win streak. The final game in the streak saw the Lady Lions finish strong with a score of 58-44 and propelled the university into the longest conference winning

streak since the 2006-2007 season. The critical win was partly due to senior guard Charliee Dugas’ abilities, who led the team to victory by scoring a critical nine points. Although this was Dugas’ last season with the Lady Lions, Guzzardo praised her commitment to the team. “Charliee was one of my first recruits at SLU,” Guzzardo said. “She is a special person to me, but she brought athleticism and defense to our program. She has been in our program for four years, so she knew our expectations. Replacing her will be tough and we will have to retract our system and expectations.” Something that set this team apart from last season was their bond off the court, according to Guzzardo. However, that bond wasn’t formed immediately. Alexius Horne, a freshman guard who became the first player in Southeastern’s history to be named Freshman of the Year by the Southland Conference, explained that it took time and patience to work with her team. “My bond with my teammates last season was slowly processing at first, but we got it together as the season went on,” Horne shared. “They were hard on me, but it only made me a stronger player. We all started coming together as a team and we started beating teams in higher rankings.”

New Beginning The spring of 2020 witnessed the inaugural season of the university’s newest sport, beach volleyball. The addition of beach volleyball made the university’s roster of current sports count up to 12 and drove the construction of a new volleyball complex at North Oak Park, which featured three sand courts and a berm for spectators. Many of the team members this year had been part of the indoor volleyball team, so they had to transition from playing indoors to outdoors. Meagan Scuderi, freshman kinesiology major, shared how she felt about being a member of the new team. “I feel extremely grateful to be able to participate in the inaugural season of Southeastern’s beach volleyball team,” Scuderi commented. “Beach volleyball has always been a sport I loved and enjoyed playing. So, being a part of the team’s first season is just an amazing feeling.” Head Coach Jeremy White expressed his feelings on coaching the university’s first beach volleyball team. “It has been exciting to be a part of an inaugural season for beach volleyball,” White said. “It’s the fastest-growing sport in the NCAA at the moment, so it’s been great to see our university jump on the train.” The new team played three games before university athletics were suspended, falling 0-5 in each one. Although the team had little time to define themselves on the court, White approved of the decision to put the new sport on hold.

“I think that Southland’s decision was made in the best interests of our student-athletes and athletics staff,” White shared. “I think that COVID-19 has scared a lot of people. That being said, the team has taken the actions of the NCAA, the Southland and both the state and federal government in stride and are doing everything we can to abide by the guidelines while also staying in the best shape possible in hopes that the virus does not affect too much more going on forward.” Despite these defeats, to look forward.

“I think we learned that it is not going to be easy to just go out and beat teams that have been in programs for a few years now,” Hidalgo said. “We have to work that much harder to pull some wins out over the more established teams in our conference”. She also shared that she had seen a lot of improvements from when the team first started practicing. “If you would have been there for the first practice, we’ve improved so much,” Hidalgo commented. “It doesn’t really show because we didn’t win anything here, but they’ve been having programs for a while, and our scores are pretty close for some games. We didn’t win anything, but we were competitive, and I think that’s all we can ask for.”

Running the Race The 2019 cross country season may have been mediocre from a team standpoint, but it was exceptional from an individual standpoint. Opening with the men’s and women’s teams ranking third out of four colleges in the McNeese Invitational, both teams ranked eighth of 13 in the conference championships opener, placing the Lions behind seven other universities each. However, Head Coach Corey Mistretta recognized that the scores in cross country do not always give full credit. “Cross country is a very unique sport where each competition hundreds of athletes can be competing as individuals, but only one team can be declared the winner,” Mistretta said. “So, in a given meet the entire team could have set individual personal bests, which could be seen as many individual victories.” Further acknowledging the gains of the season, Mistretta talked about what the team had been able to take away over the past months. “This was a really important season for us as our team is becoming very seasoned and aware,” Mistretta shared. “As we move into next season, where we will be hosting the Southland Conference Cross Country Championships here in Hammond, our teams understand what it takes to finish near the top and they are ready to show the home fans something special.” Sophie Daigle, a junior runner, certainly understood what it meant to finish near the top, leading the Lady Lions to the

finish line at every tournament. Her record continued even in the snowy conditions of the conference opener, which boasted temperatures in the high 20’s. Anthony Cordero, another junior runner, pulled off a similar feat. Having led the men’s cross country team to the finish line at five of the six tournaments—the last of which was the NCAA Regional where he finished 46th in a field of 156 runners—Cordero made headlines this season. “This past cross country season was definitely my best so far,” Cordero reported. “My confidence has definitely risen since I started running here at Southeastern.” Mistretta was proud of both the runners’ outstanding performances. “Sophie and Anthony had exceptional years for us,” Mistretta commented. “The 2020 season is on the radar for both of these athletes to shine again. Their commitment to living the Southeastern Athletics Mission to be excellent in the classroom, the community and in the competition is second to none. I am extremely proud of them.” Mistretta concluded with positive prospects for the team as a whole. “In both cross country and track there are always lessons to be taken from competitions that might not have been the best,” Mistretta said. “This team experienced a lot of growth this year and the future is extremely bright.”

Making History An astonishing season for the university’s football team saw them break multi-year records. The season not only bore witness to the Lions’ first victory over a top 10 team since 2013, but observed two victories over top 10 teams, with an overall 8-5 close to the year. On Nov. 21, when they faced Nicholls State University, the assembly resulted in the second-largest crowd in Strawberry Stadium’s history. Ultimately, Nicholls took a surprise 27-28 win, yet Southeastern was named among the 24 teams in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) playoffs three days later, marking the third time in the university’s history such has happened.

the game was so challenging. “The heightened atmosphere and the crowd was also a change for them.” Scelfo wasn’t the only one who felt that the University of Montana was a tough opponent. Matt DeBlaiso, a senior tight end, gave a short summary of the final match. “They just came out there and played better than us from start to finish,” DeBlaiso said. In spite of the crushing end to a record-breaking season, Scelfo had methods to keep the team encouraged. He talked about how he generally encourages his team after a tough game.

Frank Scelfo, the two-year head coach, was convinced that the season was one of the best the university has ever witnessed.

“We keep reminding them that they want to be the best that they can be,” Scelfo said. “And then they want to help the team be the best it can be.”

“Everybody – players and coaches – were ‘all-in’ and bought into our philosophy and establishing a winning culture for our program this season,” Scelfo said. “We didn’t have that in my first year, but it started last spring and kept building throughout the season.”

Ronald Cherry III, a junior defensive lineman, explained that even after a loss, the team still needs to keep their spirits up. He talked about how he accomplishes that.

The Lions defeated Villanova University in the first round of the FCS playoffs on Nov. 30, with a 45-44 win. This won their first playoff game in over six seasons. However, the team’s 2019 career finally ended with a 28-73 loss against their second playoff opponent, the University of Montana, in an away-game held in Missoula, Mont. “The weather conditions were a change for our guys,” Scelfo admitted, explaining why

“We just listen to our coaches and the positive messages they give us, and we just get back in the room and analyze what went wrong,” Cherry said. “Everything is about the team, not the individual.” DeBlaiso shared what keeps him motivated after a loss. “You want to be the best at everything you do,” DeBlaiso said. “You’re not going to win everything you do. You take a loss somewhere, but you just come right back and bounce back.”

Turbulence Inconsistency was one of the weaknesses that plagued the six-player golf team during the 2019-2020 season. The spring season did not open with any guarantees. The team had suffered from two injuries and a transfer over the past two years. The group began to exit the shadow of a difficult fall season. The previously injured player, graduate student William Meyers, returned to finish the spring’s first game, tied for second shooting. However, due to all university athletics’ suspension because of the COVID-19 pandemic, dashed hopes. Jake Narro, head golf coach, summarized the turbulent year. “It was a roller coaster,” Narro shared. “We started as a team poorly. Before, in the fall, when things were still, obviously, completely normal, we were just upset with ourselves because we weren’t playing only golf well. And then, when the spring started, it got better, and we started playing a little bit better, and we were at the top of the roller coaster again. And then we hit rock bottom when we got the news that the season was over because we felt like we were trending in the right direction.” Meyers, returning after a year and a half respite, talked about how it felt to help spark the upward trend for the short-lived spring season, and then tying for second at the LaTour Intercollegiate. “I didn’t even play the practice round,” Meyers recalled. “I was hurting so bad. I think that’s why I played so well because

I was nervous—I thought I would be more nervous—but honestly, I was like, ‘I don’t even know if I’m going to be able to play’. So, I had zero expectations. I think sometimes people set the bar too high, so that kind of drags them down.” Two tournaments after LaTour, the coronavirus pandemic canceled the season. Despite the unexpected letdown, Narro was grateful that his players had more avenues than other student-athletes to continue practicing. “The strange thing about golf is this; there’s a lot of golf courses that are still open because it’s one of the sports that you can kind of social distance—it’s outside on over a hundred acres,” Narro shared. “So, it’s been okay as much as okay can be. I don’t wanna minimize anything when I say that, but it’s one area that has kind of been available.” While hopes of redeeming the weak fall season with a strong spring one were vanquished, Kristofer Kerr, a junior, who led the team with 60 birdies, recognized that there were still positives to the year as a whole. “This year, we had the same five go to every tournament, so we were very close and had some awesome memories,” Kerr said. “We’re such a tight group, and we have so much fun, and we want what’s best for each other, and it’s awesome. It’s a bond you can’t break.”

on goal. Meanwhile, junior defender Jada Ellis believed the University of Memphis was this past year’s most challenging opponent. Even though the Lions fell 0-6 to the Memphis Tigers, Ellis accepted the loss in stride.

The season couldn’t improve upon the prior year’s record of 7-7-4. However, in the fifth game of the season against the University of Tennessee, junior goalkeeper Nadine Maher saved nine shots for the Lions. The list of losses also failed to show how the team had been primed for a rigorous spring training, as indicated when the Lady Lions defended their goal from Abilene Christian University for the majority of the game until they lost in the last minute.

“Losing is never fun, however, I understand it’s a part of the game,” Ellis said. “I can’t reminisce on the past. I just lift my head and prepare for the next game.” Fighting through the losses, the players believe that one pro of this season was a heightened sense of teamwork. “As a team, especially as the season continued, we found a rhythm where we started playing as one,” Wendt said. “Once that happened, we found more and more success. The teamwork doesn’t stop with the 11 on the field. It includes everyone on the bench as well. Everyone on our team had to have the same mindset for each game.”

Freshman goalkeeper Sophie Wendt spoke about how the opponents they faced this season were especially difficult to the team. “As we entered conference, we faced more quality teams,” Wendt said. “Some of the results weren’t in our favor, but we learned from each game and applied it to the next. Each game came with challenges of their own that we learned from and applied it to our spring training.”

Acknowledging the past season’s drawbacks, Ellis still maintained high prospects for the future. “This past season, unfortunately, wasn’t as good as we had hoped for,” Ellis explained. “But we’re working to be better and we’re going to be stronger than ever this year.”

According to Wendt, the Sept. 5 matchup against the University of Tennessee was the most challenging game of the year. The powerhouse Knoxville defenders immediately attempted 10 shots, with five

Moving Forward Despite the unforeseen ending of the 2020 season, the university softball team led a victorious season defined by the team’s strong effort. The season was suspended in March due to COVID-19, but the success of the half-length season reflected the successes of 2019 and 2018. Before the shutdown, the team had played a 15-8 season that opened with a five-game winning streak. The strong effort the team showed in this season might have been best embodied with the Lady Lions’ struggle against challenger Texas A&MCorpus Christi. Cameron Goodman, a freshman outfielder, elaborated on what made the games against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi so challenging. “I feel like they were the toughest opponents because they came ready to play,” Goodman shared. “And they didn’t look at us as just a Southland team even though they’re FCC. They had better pitching, and everything overall was better.” Rick Fremin, softball head coach, shared his thoughts about how the team handled the loss and how they improved later on. “We had a pretty strong start, we were doing really well, and we managed to beat Texas A&M once,” Fremin said. “Even though we dropped game one, I reminded them who they are and that they have to set the tone.”

After losing to Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in the first game on March 6, the Lady Lions did not let that stop them. Going forward, the team defeated the Islanders for the next two games. On the second game of March 6, the Lady Lions overcame the Islanders with a 9-6 win, and the next day, March 7, they kept the lead with a 2-1 win. The athletic suspension may have put the team out of commission, but the players continued to focus on getting better. Fremin explained that the team stayed self-motivated by watching motivation videos and clips. Kelci Bodin, a junior infielder/outfielder, mentioned how she stays motivated after suffering a loss. “I set goals at the beginning of the year, and I just keep chasing them even if I lose,” Bodin said. “Even though I hate to lose, I don’t let that affect me because I know there’s gonna be another game that we have to play.” Goodman explained that she had a similar tactic for maintaining energy after a defeat. “When we go back, we kinda talk about the things we did at the practice and work on those,” Goodman said. “Coach Fremin always gives us positive feedback from the game, and we just leave it in the past and move forward.”

Positive mindset The women’s tennis team continued to keep their bodies and minds healthy despite the season’s suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The team won the tournament, beating Lamar University, Xavier University and the University of West Florida, the last of which surrendered its 3-1 standing to them.

The team had to deal with an abrupt halt in March. The rest of their schedule was cancelled, leaving the team with a 5-7 overall season.

Hayes attributed the memorable tournament victory to his players’ discipline.

Putri Insani, a sophomore tennis player, said that when the government ordered the closure of all nonessential businesses, student-athletes were limited as to what they could do to stay fit and where they could go. “Currently, we are not allowed to use the athletic facility until further notice to minimize contact in person and keep our social distancing,” Insani said. “As a result, what we can do is some indoor exercise in our apartment or jogging around campus to keep us physically and mentally healthy.” Before the campus closure, the team was accustomed to an emphasis on training and staying healthy. Jason Hayes, head tennis coach, discussed the results that the training had on the students. “You could tell when the girls got here ‘till when the season ended that they were in far better shape,” Hayes mentioned. “A lot of that has to do with how well our strength and conditioning program works, but every day is a challenge to get ready for the next.” Their training helped prepare the team for the George E. Fourmaux Fed Cup Invitational Tournament hosted in October.

“We had a tremendous work ethic,” Hayes said. “The girls really put forth a lot of effort, and I think our talent level improved.” During the season, practicing wasn’t the only thing that the student-athletes needed to keep in mind. It was also important to find time to balance practices with schoolwork— even if that meant finding the balance on the road. “We would have matches every weekend, and sometimes it required a lot of traveling,” Insani shared. “During that time, we had to balance between tennis and school, so we would study in the van if we had to.” Although the tennis members found their own ways to keep their bodies in shape, they still look forward to the day when they can gather and practice in a normal setting. Theodora Mitrovic, a freshman on the team, talked about how she feels the pandemic will affect them during the 2020-2021 season. “I think that the impact will be both negative and positive,” Mitrovic said. “We are probably not going to perform at our highest level right after we start, but the motivation is going to be very high, and everyone will be happy to be back on the court.”

Strong bond A strong camaraderie helped make champions out of the track and field team this past season. For the first time since 2014, the team pulled together to win the indoor Southland Conference Championship. Grant O’Callaghan, senior distance and cross-country runner, attributed their conference win, the first in six years, to the influential bond members shared. “This year has been our closest team by far,” O’Callaghan said. “I think we all just knew early on that we were a special group who could win championships, and that made everybody very supportive and excited for one another.” Johnathon Sawyer, a senior sprinter, gave examples of how the team built their bond over the past season. “We hung out outside of the track,” Sawyer said. “At the actual meets, we had a lot of fun sharing jokes or making fun of each other.” Even when COVID-19 kept the players from meeting on the track, the members tried to maintain their closeness. O’Callaghan explained how he and other players could connect after the pandemic changed their lives. “I have been doing my best to stay away from people outside the team, but we have a small group of guys that are staying in Hammond and

training hard,” O’Callaghan said. “The season may be over, but our motivation is high right now, and we are taking this as an opportunity to improve ourselves.” Sawyer and O’Callaghan rose to the challenge this past season, helping other members overcome adversity and build up their confidence in each other. Corey Mistretta, head coach, commented on how the two runners stepped up as leaders on the team. “Johnathon Sawyer is a senior transfer from Grambling who came in and brought an edge to our team that we were missing,” Mistretta said. “Another guy would be Grant O’Callaghan, who brings a can-do attitude to training and competition and leads our distance group by example. His leadership allowed guys like Shea Foster to come into the team and have an immediate impact.” Although a lot of what makes the team strong is their bond as athletes, Mistretta also worked to get the student-athletes to be vigilant about pursuing excellence in the classroom and community. “I want to help young student-athletes develop into strong, morally grounded Christians, who will graduate from Southeastern and have an immediate impact on their communities when they return home,” Mistretta said. “This has always been and will always be my driving force.”

A fast Start “Don’t start slow.” Those were the words that Jeremy White, head volleyball coach, used to motivate the Lady Lions volleyball team throughout the season. From their first game of the season against Troy University to their entrance into the 2019 Southland Conference tournament. Those were the words that helped the team break a losing streak and make a critical 3-2 win against Tulane. And they were the same words that senior middle blocker Jodi Edo recalled as she shattered a nearly decade-old conference record. The record: leading the Southland with 38 solo blocks. “‘Don’t start slow, start a fast start’—he always tells us to begin a game with a fast start,” Edo recalled. “A fast start gives us a better advantage in the game. It gives us better energy. The outcome is always a win with a faster start.” Despite beginning the season with three games, each with 0-3 losses, the win against Tulane started to turn the tide for the Lady Lions. According to Edo, the fighting mindset that White instilled was a contributing factor for the victory. “We knew Tulane was a very tough opponent, so the best thing we did was to say, ‘Let’s keep up with them, let’s hang with them, let’s let them know that we are not here to get swept,’” Edo said. “It was

a very good turning point for Southeastern volleyball. After that, we started winning more games.” White maintained that energy and attitude were crucial components of winning the Tulane game—his most memorable game of the season—after which the Lady Lions broke a losing streak and went on to win 13 of the next 27 games. “We had a great attitude and great energy,” White said. “The team played hard, outplayed the other team, and it wasn’t just a matter of them having a bad day. They could have had their B+ game, but we brought our A+ game, and we were able to take care of business. I think that game really changed our season.” Although the team made an early turnaround, their dismal start left the team desiring a few improvements. For next year, Ryan Maddera, senior outside hitter, believes that the key to the team’s progress remains in the mindset. “I think we would be better next year than we did this last year because of what Coach teaches,” Maddera shared. “Everyone on the team right now has a bottom to the culture, and everyone wants to win, and they all want to win for each other instead of just themselves. It is a very selfless team, and I think we will be really good.”

Cheer Up From cheering in four different states to being required to exercise alone, the past year proved memorable for the cheerleaders.

Everything about that trip was amazing. We had a charter flight there and back which I thought was so cool. We all felt like celebrities.”

The fall boasted an invitation to cheer in Mississippi at the Southeastern vs. Ole Miss away game, as well as an invitation to cheer at playoffs against the University of Montana. The winter season was distinguished by placing third in Division I small coed category of the Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) finals, held in Florida. And the spring witnessed a campus closure that redefined the way the team would close out the year.

After attending playoffs in Montana, becoming a finalist in the UCA championships and juggling the regular amount of games and community events, Clark talked about how it felt to suddenly have to take a step back. “After hearing that everything was being moved to online, I didn’t take it that seriously,” Clark admitted. “I thought that everything would go back to normal in a couple of weeks. Looking at the situation now, I am a lot more emotional than I was at first. It saddens me that I will never get to be with that same team again. I’d do anything to be with my teammates again, even if it meant a 7 a.m. workout.”

Cheerleader Lindy Lerille, a junior social studies education major, was not alone in expressing that the eventful year passed quickly. She shared the most outstanding highlight of it all. “The most memorable event that I attended this past year was the UCA College Nationals,” Lerille explained. “My first two years were rough for our team, and we did not make it to finals for our routine. This year we made it to finals and placed third place. There was no better feeling than making finals and placing third. Honestly, it was like we had won first place.”

Given the eventfulness of the past year, both Lerille and Clark expressed a wish that their team would pause to remember the present. Clark shared her advice with the team. “As cliche as it might sound, the best advice I could give to a Southeastern cheerleader is to not blink,” Clark said. “It goes by so fast. Before you know it, you’re preparing for your last semester wondering, ‘Where the heck did all the time go?’ Make sure you go to all of the team bondings, even if it’s just getting food after practice. Make the most of everything. When things get tough and you get stressed, just think of how blessed you are to have the opportunities that others will never have.”

Cheerleader Breanna Clark, a junior health systems management major, shared her favorite memory from the season. “The most memorable event that I attended as a cheerleader this past year would have been the playoff game in Montana,” Clark said. “When I heard I was selected to go, I was ecstatic.

Lionettes Vibe The Lionettes danced through happiness and disappointment over the past year. Staying ranked as one of the top five Division I collegiate dance teams in the nation for the past nine years was one of the happier moments. Watching the banner drop in the University Center that celebrated their previous year’s accomplishment was another happy moment. However, failing to place in the top three at the national dance teams’ finals this year proved disappointing. Lionette Shelby Johnson, a senior marketing major, faced the dismay with the acknowledgment that the team had given their all. “I believe this team went out there and did everything in our power, even fixing things quickly during a parking lot practice the night before finals, to go out there and do our best,” Johnson admitted. “Sometimes you have to remember what it feels like to be knocked down so you can get back up and try again, and that’s just what the Lionettes will do next season.” Lionette Katherine Hernandez, a senior psychology major, viewed the disappointment with a similar sentiment. “Even though the placement wasn’t what we expected, we knew when we came off the floor after finals that we put out the

best product that we were capable of,” Hernandez said. “It was a performance we could all be proud of, regardless of what the results said.” Some of the positive experiences that resulted from the past year—and the year prior—couldn’t be tracked back to a single moment. Johnson talked about a lesson she learned in her two-year career with the team. “Lionettes has taught me several things, my favorite one being learning how to be a team player,” Johnson shared. “This is something easy to grasp, but I never fully appreciated it until coming on to this team and being able to hear my teammates cheering me on—whether it be on the nationals mat or something with school.” Hernandez summed up the sweet and sour year, which culminated in the physical dispersal of the Lionettes, with some advice. “Always find a reason to be ambitious,” Hernandez said. “Without ambition, you become complacent. There is opportunity for growth in every experience we face. The ambition to find growth in even the worst of situations is the path to success, regardless of the area you hope to achieve that success.”

on Guard The university color guard does not want its teammates to sweat the small stuff. By stressing the values of hard work, positivity and teamwork, the flag unit has found its comfort zone. These values keep the members from losing their motivation or shifting their focus. Kirsten Saint and Jadyn Mumphrey served as team captains, and Miranda Matise and Katelyn Till were selected as the new captains for next season. Matise, a sophomore communication sciences and disorders major, talked about what the team looks for in new members. “You don’t have to be super, super good,” Matise shared. “It’s not as strict as high school. You gotta have a good attitude. If you’re mean and negative all the time it’s not gonna cut it.” Till, a junior early childhood education major, also explained the qualities that new candidates need to possess. “We look for confidence, excitement to be on the team,” Till said. “We do look for skill level, you do have to have preset skills to be on the team. And just a willingness to try anything.” Teamwork plays a vital role in the university’s color guard, and Till expressed how she feels about it.

“If you have one side of the field that’s not paying attention to the other side, then the whole show becomes a mess,” shared Till. “We have to work together, so it’s super important.” Matise agreed with her fellow captain, commenting that teamwork is an important key to success. “It’s very important because if you don’t work together, then nothing’s going to get done,” Matise said. “It wouldn’t be fun either, and it would just be boring or exhausting not to do good teamwork.” Another important factor for the university color guard is motivation—a characteristic, Matise explained, which is fostered by a forgiving and relaxed atmosphere. “We tell each other that every show isn’t going to be great,” Matise shared. “We’re human, not perfect. Just try harder and practice harder. And if you don’t get it next time then you have to try harder.” Till talked about what inspires her to keep doing better. “The crowd cheering us on keeps me motivated,” Till said. “Even though we do make mistakes we always have next week to redo it and fix ourselves. And we practice almost every single day, so we always have time to look back on what we did wrong and do better.”

On the MArch This year threw a lot at the Spirit of the Southland Marching Band.

Monday through Thursday, allowing me to work doubles at my part-time job Friday through Sunday. Sometimes it was tough, and there was a lot of late nights involved, but for the most part marching band did not really affect my workload.”

When the Lions football team started getting national attention through ESPN, the marching band had the opportunity to perform for fans nationwide. Additionally, the Louisiana Music Educators Association called many members of the band to perform at their annual convention. Students had to balance practicing for the convention as part of the Southeastern Wind Symphony with their marching band practices.

Despite the obstacles, the marching band continued to play with great energy and camaraderie—a task aided by Mr. Southeastern 2019 Brian Williams, who served as one of the drum majors. “Brian has been one of the heartbeats and backbones of our program ever since I’ve known him,” Stoughton said. “And to have that positive energy and spirit recognized by the university was a pretty cool thing. We are so proud of him and this achievement and know that the character traits that he possesses to earn him this award will take him far in life.”

Derek Stoughton, director of the marching band, tried to help students cope with their additional responsibilities by creating enjoyable shows and marching drills. “We also try to connect with our audience, and put together shows that will be memorable for them,” Stoughton said. “We know that we have people from all walks of life who attend games in Strawberry Stadium, and we try very hard to give people from all generations something to look forward to throughout the season.”

No matter what, the marching band has continually benefitted the students involved. Aside from a performance scholarship to help pay for their college dues, the effects of being involved extends into their personal and professional lives.

Maryssa Chartier, who was in her second year as an undergraduate assistant to the band, shared how she balanced the responsibilities of her schoolwork and job.

“Being a part of the Spirit of the Southland has shaped who I am as a person,” Chartier said. “I have learned responsibility, loyalty and dedication through serving a part in this organization.”

“Balancing work, classes and marching band was not always the easiest,” Chartier said. “I found myself doing classwork strictly

Pandemic 2020 Declared a public health emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO) on Jan. 30, 2020, the worldwide coronavirus outbreak took on U.S. concern when President Donald J. Trump proclaimed a national health emergency on Mar. 13. COVID-19, originally designated as pneumonia of unknown cause by the WHO, originated from Wuhan, China. Within a matter of months, it spread around the world. Prominent figures, including President Trump, posited that the virus was designed in a Wuhan research lab. Simultaneously, major news and media outlets like the Washington Post dismissed the claim as doubtful, saying that the virus likely evolved from bats. In an article published on May 1, Meg Kelly and Sarah Cahlan of the Washington Post considered the origins of the virus and concluded the following: “The balance of the scientific evidence strongly supports the conclusion that the new coronavirus emerged from nature—be it the Wuhan market or somewhere else,” they wrote. “But the Chinese government has not been willing or able to provide information that would clarify lingering questions about any possible role played by either Wuhan lab.” Acknowledging a threat from the disease of mysterious origins, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards declared COVID-19 a public health emergency on Mar. 11. He issued a statewide stay-at-home order to fight the spread of COVID-19 11 days later. This declaration was made after the rising numbers of cases put Louisiana at the highest growth rate of the virus in the world, according to a University of Louisiana at Lafayette study. On Mar. 17, Trump urged all American citizens to stay home to help stop the virus’ transmission, thus resulting in an unprecedented transition to remote work for nonessential workers and students. The stay-at-home order affected jobs, churches, universities and public schools. Some jobs were transitioned to remote work, while thousands of others faced termination from their jobs. According to an article by ABC News, this caused the most massive unemployment rate in U.S. history since

the Great Depression. The report compared the historic high unemployment rate of 14.5% in April to the historic low unemployment rate of 3.5% in February. In the wake of the outbreak, universities transitioned to total online schooling. Depending on the state, the public school year was concluded early, or the schools were forced to create ways for students to work virtually from home. According to individual states, nonessential institutions included churches and other houses of worship. After over a month of lockdown for these institutions, Trump demanded that governors allow them to be reopened. “America, we need more prayer, not less,” Trump said, criticizing certain states for deeming abortion clinics and liquor stores essential while omitting churches and other houses of worship. Compounding the shutdowns, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued international and domestic advisories against travel. On Mar. 11, Trump banned European air travel from 26 countries. These factors, among others, contributed to air travel dropping by an estimated 90% from the same time last year, according to an Apr. 7 article published by Insider. Due to continually rising cases, on Mar. 29, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director, said that he anticipated that the coronavirus could kill 100,000-200,000 Americans while infecting millions of others. Despite Fauci’s seemingly accurate prediction, some people have become skeptical of how death tolls have been counted. “I think a lot of clinicians are putting that condition on death certificates when it might not be accurate because they died with coronavirus and not of coronavirus,” Macomb County, Mich., Chief Medical Examiner Daniel Spitz said, in an article published by Ann Arbor News. “Are they entirely accurate? No,” Spitz said. “Are people dying of it? Absolutely. Are people dying of other things, and coronavirus is maybe getting credit? Yeah, probably.”

Sudden Change Spring of 2020 marked the first time in the university’s history that all classes, including lectures and labs, were transitioned entirely online. Eight weeks into the regular semester, an e-mail was sent by Dr. John Crain, university president, which announced the unprecedented change made in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. Sent on Mar. 12, it allowed faculty and students five days to prepare for the transition. Many professors responded by utilizing Google Meet, Zoom and other online services to conduct their classes. For the remainder of the spring and summer semesters, students without access to computers of their own could visit the Fayard Hall Student Technology Center, the university’s only operational computer lab. Breanna Paige, a sophomore art major, described how she felt about not attending in-person classes. “Personally, it’s harder in the sense that it puts more stress on me,” Paige said. “I feel like I’m constantly checking Moodle and my e-mail because I feel as if I’m missing something.” Chelsea Slack, an instructor of communication, acknowledged that the change wasn’t an optimal learning method for her students. “Some of my students were unhappy with going online just because they always prefer and do better in face-to-face classes,” Slack explained. “Face-to-face is obviously a more personal experience, and students get to really know one another and their

professors. It also allows students to reach out more easily to their professors and get better one-on-one help. And for some classes, it is just harder to teach them and harder for students to be successful in an online setting.” Anyree Phillips, freshman marketing major, tackled the new situation by requesting that the university allow special grading accommodations for the spring semester. Soon after implementing entirely virtual classes, Phillips created a petition vying to grant students the option of taking a pass or fail grade instead of grading on the regular system. Within the three days of the creation of the petition, it had garnered 4,000 signatures. By Mar. 31, the university announced changes to grading policies for the spring semester. These changes allowed for extended withdrawal deadlines, revisions to the grading policy, a new pass/fail system and the option to request a grade change after the posting of final grades. Dr. Christine Mitchell, an associate professor of English, shared that she feels the university made a wise decision to switch to remote learning. “With luck, God’s grace or whatever you believe in, we will not have to give up any family members,” Mitchell said. “So, two months of school work, teaching and commencement exercises seem like little enough of a sacrifice. Get a hobby, talk to your family, stay home.”

Impact on Students jobs Student jobs felt the impact of a global emphasis placed on social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic during a nearly two-month period when the Mane Dish and the Fayard Hall Student Technology Center were among the only operational on-campus services. Shortly after a Mar. 12 notice from Dr. John L. Crain, the university president, which announced that classes would be conducted remotely, student workers were then instructed to take their work home as well. Job losses were then compounded by a stay-athome order from Governor John Bel Edwards, issued on Mar. 22. The order outlined that Louisiana residents should avoid gathering in groups of 10 or more, stay six feet away from others and avoid non-essential visits with friends and family. Students who worked in the service industry, such as restaurants and bars, experienced layoffs. The order only allowed restaurants to provide to-go services. Movie theaters, nail salons, hair salons and other businesses also closed temporarily. Conner Brian, a senior marketing major, described the day he was laid off from his job as a pharmaceutical representative at St. Tammany Hospital and as a bartender at Fifth’s Bar and Arcade. “I was at work and was called into the main office at my company, and they were like, ‘For right now, we’re going to be on a permanent hold,’” Brian explained. “About one o’clock, I got a call from my other boss once we got federal notice that no bars and restaurants can be open for

business, so I essentially got laid off of that job as well.” Michael Lawson, a sophomore biological sciences major and server at Salty Joe’s BBQ Shop, shared how the regulation caused him to lose income. “After the restaurants shut down, my restaurant, in particular, decided not to do to-go orders or anything, so they had to lay us off until restaurants can open again,” Lawson said. Lawson explained that his employer wanted workers to have the option of filing for unemployment benefits instead of struggling to earn income from a temporarily unnecessary job. “They knew that it was going to create a lot of financial troubles for people,” Lawson said, referring to his employer’s reaction to the regulation that only allowed to-go orders. “A lot of people work there, and that’s their only job, and that’s their only way to pay rent and live. So, what they’ve suggested was to lay people off so that if people needed to apply for unemployment, they could.” Despite the lack of job security that he and other students have had to undergo, Lawson shared the good news about how his employer may try to work with him in the future. “Whenever the restaurants start reopening, they told us to reapply, and then we would get our jobs back,” Lawson shared. “Even though we’re almost guaranteed our jobs back, still not having the job is stressful, making sure bills are paid and everything.”

letter from the Editor Victoria Buras

When I began college in the fall of 2017, I never would have thought I would be blessed with such an amazing job at Southeastern Louisiana University. I have worked with Student Publications since the spring of 2019. When I became editor-in-chief of Le Souvenir in fall 2019, there were many curveballs I had to dodge. The biggest curveball I had to face was the university shifting to remote work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, causing me to be nervous that the yearbook would not be finished on time. I had a team of three by my side, virtually, throughout quarantine. It took determination and focus on getting what had to be done to reach the editing process. Luckily, I am a graphic design major, so I was able to design all the pages myself. This yearbook was inspired by the Art Deco movement and the novel “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald, since it is indeed the roaring 20’s. One quote that helped me get through hard times was Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ that gives me strength.” With hours and hours of hard work, I am proud and pleased to present Le Souvenir 2020 to you.

Behind the with Student Publications Scenes For more than 80 years, Southeastern students have been taking on the task of creating award-winning publications. These student journalists’ and editors’ responsibility is to inform the campus community of what has happened and continues to happen around the university and the local community through either The Lion’s Roar newspaper or Le Souvenir yearbook. As a result, student reporters have garnered awards and worldwide readership and become a firsthand outlet for documenting numerous historical events, from protests, celebrity visits, campus shootings and more. Jacob Summerville, editor-in-chief of The Lion’s Roar from the fall of 2019 to the spring of 2020, explained that the responsibility is not an easy one. “The most stressful thing is that Monday before the print edition comes out, just that whole day is dedicated to getting that whole project turned in on a deadline,” Summerville said. “I was a part of the newspaper staff for the six semesters of my college career, so every single Monday was filled with juggling the classwork, and the homework and the tests that I needed to take care of Monday and Tuesday, while also going back to work on the newspaper in-between those class periods.” Another challenge faced by the newspaper is being misunderstood, according to Symiah Dorsey, a staff reporter and editor-in-training for The Lion’s Roar. “I think the relationship between journalism and society is very rocky right now,” Dorsey said. “And I think people don’t see that while you’re taking care of your final exams, yeah, we’re doing that too, but we’re also interviewing people, we’re writing stories. On top of my essays, I also have to write stories, it’s just more writing and more time than I’m putting into something.” Both The Lion’s Roar newspaper and the Le Souvenir yearbook faced the additional challenge of adapting

to work remotely over the spring semester. Victoria Buras, editor-in-chief of Le Souvenir, talked about how she reacted when she learned that all offices would switch to remote work in response to the COVID-19 health crisis. “Honestly, I was super nervous because I didn’t know how things would go working from home,” Buras said. “I know everybody has a different living situation. So, I didn’t know whether we would be able to get all of our things done, even with features. Somebody can write something, but depending on the person having Wi-Fi access and everything like that? And then I was nervous that we would lose interest, because we’re not together, in an office, feeding off of ideas 24/7.” Despite the obstacles faced in remotely producing a more than 200-page book with a skeleton crew of four, Buras expressed optimism for the project. “When we finish, and we get it printed, we’ll look back at these times and hopefully laugh about it,” Buras said. “I mean, yeah, we’ve all been through some stuff. One of our reporters is in a different state. I’m still at home. Another reporter had to move away. All this has happened, yet we were still able to accomplish such a big task for four people. Because, in previous years, the yearbook office had like 15 people and 10 people. We—we’re four. We are a mighty four.” Amid the everyday trials, the added ones of remote work, the coverage of a global coronavirus outbreak and the coverage of a civil rights movement, the 20192020 reporters at Student Publications are adamant that their work is, in the end, fulfilling. “What’s rewarding about this job is not only being able to put yourself out there socially but also being able to look back on the work you did and say, ‘Yeah, I made a difference to somebody by sharing their story,’” Dorsey explained. “That’s what’s rewarding— you’re bringing people together through your work.”
