  • No driving privileges or Wal-Mart runs on Friday night or Saturday. Driving privileges resume on Sunday. Students may check-out to go on trips home or to others' homes on Friday night, but may hit some atypical traffic.

Annual Student Services Staff Holiday Party!!!!!!!!

Wednesday, Dec. 17th, 6:30pm

354 Shoreline Dr

Natchitoches, LA

As always, lots of food and some beverages will be provided, but feel free to bring your beverage of choice. Walks to nearby Maggio's Package Liquor are also always an option.


If you'd like to participate in our optional White Elephant Gift Exchange, bring something that you have and don't want, but that someone else MIGHT want... so not legitimate trash, but you know, something that could be of value... to someone.


Poker will probably happen.


You should come and maybe you, too, can photo bomb the annual "Kim and Emily in a Kitchen" photo.

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

Next Meeting - 12/4/14

At our first meeting after the Thanksgiving Break, we'll be discussing programming for the spring semester. We need to make a schedule of weekend programs, sign-up to assist with major events, and we'd like to make a formalized privilege trip schedule that we can publicize to students.


Think about the types of programs you'd like to offer and potential dates for those programs.


Major events we'll be discussing include the Sweetheart's Afterparty, Prom Afterparty, SLAMT Weekend, and Spring Fling.
