Contact: Tonya Lowentritt
HAMMOND Southeastern Louisiana University orientation leaders are scheduled to present an
educational session at the annual Southern Region Orientation Workshop (SROW) in Charlotte,
N.C., March 8 11.
The presentation “Putting the brakes on stereotypes: I have been personally victimized by Regina George,” refers to one of the central characters in the popular movie “Mean Girls.”
Admissions Counselor Amanda Hammonds said the presentation will be made by 2012 orientation leaders Bernice Cashman, a business administration major from Covington; Landon Andries, psychology major from Addis; and Taylor Dubois, a communication major from Gonzales.
“We bring our orientation leaders to SROW each year. There are over 2,000 college students from the southern region who attend,” Hammonds said. “This workshop provides training in a wide range of educational sessions for orientation leaders and ambassadors.”
This year for SROW, Southeastern orientation leaders are also participating in a service project called “Operation Homefront’s Back to School Brigade,” Hammonds said. The orientation leaders are collecting school supplies to donate to children in North Carolina with parents actively serving in the military. Donations can be submitted to the Office of Admissions by March 6.
