Hall Spotlight: Caddo 2nd East
Yolanda Thompson is the SLA for 2E. Yolanda is new to Louisiana and is touched by the warm welcome she's received from students, parents, faculty and staff.
Originally from Arizona, Yolanda has traveled to many different places from studying Spanish abroad, to being an exchange student in Germany to teaching English in Kuwait. She loves meeting new people and trying different things and says she is enjoying her new position at LSMSA.
The students on 2nd East have been well-fed by Yolanda so far this year! In addition to monthly hall birthday celebrations, they've enjoyed a grilled cheese night, beef stroganoff night, taco night, and soda floats.
Yolanda says that the girls of 2E are "definitely a good group and get along well with each other and they are having a great year."
Student Stress Runs High
Under Pressure - (Queen/Bowie Cover) by pd-k.
We encourage parents to offer their students extra TLC during this time, to recognize that your student might be a little hypersensitive right now, and to be in touch with the student life advisor if you have any concerns.
Things should start to improve next week, as a break is in sight.
Mark Your Calendars! Halls Close for Thanksgiving Break
Friday, Nov. 22nd 2013 at 4pm
715 University Parkway
Please remember that most of our residential life staff members are from out of state and have made arrangements to travel to see their own families during the break. We appreciate parents making arrangements to pick-up their students by 4:00 p.m., when the halls are scheduled to close.
Coming Soon to Natchitoches: Christmas Festival!
Because of the number of requests we receive from family members, friends of students, and alumni, we do not allow any guests to stay in the residence hall on Christmas Festival weekend.
Additionally, we do not allow students to stay overnight at any off-campus location in Natchitoches unless they are staying with their own parents on this weekend.
The cafeteria does not serve dinner on the night of Christmas Festival. With help from the Parents' Council and ABL cafeteria, we will be providing a gumbo dinner in the late afternoon/early evening for students who would like to participate. Any parents who would like to contribute something to the dinner can contact John Shore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
