  • NEW 10-26-2018: PARADE AND PEPRALLY

    PARADE INFORMATION FOR FLOAT COMPETITION:

    • All floats need to enter the parade lineup by going down south Jefferson and turn left onto Caldwell drive. 
    • Before the floats make that turn at the corner of South Jefferson and Caldwell Drive, we will measure the floats and drivers will be breathalyzed.
    • Once the floats make the left, they will be judged. Make sure all participants are on the float at the time of arrival.
    • Parking for float participants CANNOT be on Caldwell Drive nor the parking lot of Warren Easton.  They must park along Chaplains lake or by the railroad track parking lot.
    • FLOATS: Once on Caldwell Drive, the floats will turn right into the parade lineup area. We will have volunteers directing traffic.
    • HONOR COURT CARS: Once on Caldwell Drive, the honor court royalty will stay on Caldwell Drive.  They will not turn right into the parade line up area.
    • At 5pm, we start to move towards 2nd street Front Gate Entrance so when 5:30pm hits, we roll.
    • Once the parade is on the River Bank, we are asking that all riders are dropped off AFTER they pass the stage.

    PARADE ROUTE:

    • Main gates of campus
    • Straight on 2ND Street
    • Right on Rue Touline
    • Drive straight down to the Riverbank
      • Save some throws and candy for the people sitting in the stands!!!  They will love it!
    • Unload all participants on the North End of the Riverbank.  DO NOT DROP FOLKS OFF BEFORE YOUR FLOAT GOES IN FRONT OF THE STAGE.
    • THERE IS NO PARKING ON THE RIVERBANK FOR FLOATS.  THEY MUST MAKE THEIR WAY TO THE 2ND STREET CITY ANNEX PARKING OR BACK TO CAMPUS.  EACH GROUP NEEDS TO COORDINATE THAT WITH THEIR DRIVERS.

  • 10-25-2017: Events, News, and More!

     

    Dear Students:

    I hope everyone is well and recovered from midterms and homecoming week. Fall is a great time of year and with it comes one of my favorite holidays, Halloween.

    Traditional among Halloween activities are costume parties. Regrettably each year, we hear of college students who choose to dress in ways that are insensitive to others. Costumes or party themes that depict race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, social status, ability, or a specific element of a culture are inappropriate.

    At all times and particularity at Halloween, I ask you to consider the values of Northwestern and the ideals of friendship and care which are the foundation of our University and the student groups on our campus. Loyalty, Leadership and Service are the principles that guide the Demon Creed. In order to be a Demon, we are called to honor Northwestern, ourselves, and members of the NSU family.

    Your leadership is a valuable strength. I encourage you to act on our Northwestern values. Be thoughtful as you plan events. Remember you determine who can and cannot attend your parties. Please act in ways that safeguard NSU, your groups and most especially, your fellow Demons.

    Contact me or any member of the Student Experience staff if you have concerns. Have a happy and safe Halloween.

    Frances Conine

    Vice President for the Student Experience/ Dean of Students

      • If your organization chooses to setup between 12 and 2pm, we ask that you be sure you communicate with your members the rules for the event (see below).

    • TABLE COVERS:
      • If your organization has a table cover, please do not use our purple table covers.  We have limited quantities.
      • Stop by the registration tent to pick up your purple table cover IF you need one.
      • If there is a table cover already placed on a table, it has been reserved by the FC staff for a department for Purple Palooza.  Be respectful of this process.

    • BOOTH ACTIVITIES:
      • Unless your organizations purpose has something to do with animals or that your member has a registered service animal, we ask that you do not bring animals to Purple Palooza. 
      • If you have a tent, we ask that you do not set up under a tree. If you do, we will move your items to another location.  Several groups did not take into account this request yesterday.
      • We loved all of the fun stuff you all are doing at the booths! Keep up the Great Work!!!

    • RSO OUTDOOR LETTERS
      • Please pick up your RSO letters today, Friday, June 2, 2017 as the next connection is three weeks away.  We need to clean the area before the next connection. 

    Thank you all for breaking down your tables and stacking them up as requested.  More hands make light work! Please forward this information to the members who will actually be at the event. 

    We value your feedback. Please take a moment after the session to evaluate your experience with Purple Palooza. Purple Palooza Post Event Evaluation

    Great job everyone! Freshman Connection Session 1 is done!!  We are making a few adjustments for Purple Palooza but nothing too big!  You all did a fantastic job!

    • Look for the labeled T-stands in order to find out where your organization's table should be. 

    • We also want to remind you all to break down your table and stack next to the stage after the event. Thank you for returning your table blankets! :)

    The Committee on Organizations has made a few changes to the RSO manual.  They will be published in January 2017.  Some things to keep in mind as we go into the new year:

    • Advisors should check grades of each member of their organization(s) they advise to be sure they have earned the appropriate MINIMUM GPA to serve within their organization. (Officers - 2.0 previous and cumulative; Members - 2.0 previous OR cumulative is the minimum per the RSO manual).
    • All organizations that elect new officers, must schedule an officer training with the office of Student Activities and Organization.

  • 09-22-2016: Are you an Advisor of an RSO at NSU?

    Organizations that have updated their Orgsync Portal will need to have their portal's reviewed and approved by their advisor(s). This ensures that you all know that you have been selected by students as an advisor.  (Some staff/faculty members in the past had no idea that they were advisers of organizations. This helps us determine if you do agree to serve or not.)

    The deadline to certify was September 14, 2016.  We will extend the deadline until next Friday in order for you all to review and approve the requests.  Please let us know if you need assistance in this process. We will be happy to swing by your office to help!!

    These are the organizations that need advisor approval as of 9/22/16.  Be sure to check your CLUTTER mail as my certification request was sent there by accident.

  • 03-10-2016: N-Side View Day Postponed

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding. Stay Dry!!

  • 03-07-2016: N-Side View is Saturday!!

  • 03-03-2016: From the Office of Student Activities

    5:30-8:30pm Prather Coliseum

    Here is what is at stake:
    Our Lady Demons and SFA are both 11-5 in conference play and are battling for the #2 seed in the conference tournament. The top two seeds get a double bye to the semi-finals at the Southland Conference tournament next week. SFA has won 10 straight games. NSU has won 5 straight with its last loss being at SFA on February 4. We need to have fans in the stands when that game starts at 5:30!!!
    The SFA men have not lost a conference game this year but our Demons played them better, on their court, than has anybody else in the Southland this season. A win over SFA would be huge for our team’s momentum as they head to the conference tournament in Katy.

    Let's #PackPrather for the last home game of the season!

  • 09-02-2015: NSU Remembers 9/11

    NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State University will host an acknowledgement of Patriot Day on Friday, Sept. 11 in which students, faculty, staff and the community are invited to gather at the flagpoles between the Student Services Center and Caspari Hall to observe a moment of silence in memory of the 2,977 individuals killed in the 2001 September 11 terrorist attacks.  

                Northwestern State’s ROTC cadets will lower the flag to half-mast as the bell tolls at 8:46 a.m., the time at which the hijacked American Airlines Flight 11 was crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.   Bell tolls will also take place at 9:03 a.m., the time at which United Airlines Flight 175 was crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center;  at 9:37 a.m., the time at which American Airlines Flight 77 was crashed into the Pentagon, and at 10:07 a.m., the time at which United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

                “September 11 is nationally recognized as a day of service and remembrance,” said Frances Conine, dean of students.  “Whether or not you are able to attend the flag lowering or are present on campus to hear the bell tolls, we hope that Americans will pause for a moment of silence or voluntary prayer.”

  • 03-05-2015: Freshman Connection Sponsorship Opportunity

    Northwestern State University

    Office of First Year Experience & Leadership Development

    Freshman Connection 2015 is just a few short months away!  We are in the process of preparing for all of our new freshmen and their families who will be arriving on campus.  The Freshman Connection staff is looking forward to a great summer orientation program and we need your help.  Your organization is invited to participate in the Organization Expo during Freshman Connection and as a program sponsor to let new students know who you are, what you're about, what you are planning for the fall semester and how they can get involved with your organization.

    We are in the process of completing our program book that students and parents will receive while participating in Freshman Connection this summer.  With your support of Freshman Connection 2015, your organization will be one of the first on campus to welcome new students and their parents to Northwestern State University!  As a Recognized Student Organization you have an opportunity to purchase an ad for your organization to be placed in the program book. 

    Please see the sponsor contract outlining the various sponsorship levels available for your consideration.  Any of these sponsorships will give you the opportunity to reach approximately 1,000 new students and their parents, which would be extremely beneficial to your organization.  Incoming freshmen are always eager to get involved in campus activities and organizations and the program book will be a great opportunity for your organization to get its name out to new students and their parents.  Other than the Organization Expo, this will be the only way to advertise your organization during summer orientation.

    If you are interested in purchasing an ad for your organization or would like a Freshman Connection staff member to attend your organizational meeting and explain the various opportunities for involvement, please contact the Office of First Year Experience & Leadership Development at 357-5559.

    Thank you for your consideration and support of Freshman Connection 2015.

  • 10-21-2014: Andrej Kurti - Road to Carnegie Hall

    Dear friends and colleagues,

    About a month ago I have received the invitation to perform a solo violin recital in very prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City. Time and date will be determined within couple of months, but we are looking at the Fall of 2015- September, most likely.


    In New York I will be performing Eugene Ysaye's Six Solo Violin Sonatas, opus 27. These Sonatas are also the content of my last CD, released by Blue Griffin Recording, music label based in Michigan, with Dr. Sergei Kvitko as the sound engineer and the executive producer. In adition- The Sonatas were also the topic of my Doctoral Dissertation, back in 2003.


    The first of the "Road To Carnegie Recital Series" will be in Magale Recital Hall of the Northwestern State University of Louisiana, on Thursday, October 23 at 7:30 pm. Free admission!
    This program is very rarely performed in one recital, and it lasts little over the hour.


    Opus 27 presents one of the most challenging, but in the same time beautiful and rich compositional masterpieces, and I would like to invite the members of your beautiful community to attend and let me share this music with them to the best of my ability!


    Also, I must say that I got much of support from many dear friends and colleagues during every Ysaye related project, esp.  Dr. Greg Handel, Director of CAPA, and my dear friend Rodney Harrington.
    Lastly, Dr. Sergei Kvitko will be present at the concert, and will be recording the recital for the Live DVD release in the near future! So, Folks, come on October 23 and be a part of the movie!!!

    Best from Andrej!

  • 10-17-2014: Certification

    Hello Recognized Student Organizations,

    I can’t believe the semester is half way over!  Yikes! 

    I do want to mention that as of Monday, October 20th, the organizations whose advisors haven’t accepted their role as “advisor” within the orgsync portal, will become inactive on NSU’s campus.  We have sent out several emails asking for the advisors to approve the certification.  Please help your advisor approve your organization in order to change your pending status to active status at NSU.

    STEPS FOR THE ADVISOR TO REVIEW AND EITHER APPROVE OR DENY THE RSO:

    • Once the advisor receives the email, the advisor must click “Review Now” in order to complete the certification for the organization.
    • It will take you to the orgsync portal (if they are new to NSU, they will be prompted to set up a profile for themselves)
    • On the right side, you will see “the Next Step” and the link “Submit Review Form”.
    • Click on “Submit Review Form”
    • Answer the few questions and Click Finish

    If you all need any help with this process, please email me.  Once Monday comes I will send a list to all building managers an updated list of RSO’s at NSU.  If you aren’t on the list, then all bookings will be cancelled.

    (The picture on this post is an example of what the email looks like)

  • 10-03-2014: Homecoming Update

    Hello Everyone,

    We are gearing up for Homecoming Week next week and are very excited about the participation so far!  

    • We wanted to let you all know that the Student Union was closed today and tomorrow due to the floors being waxed. This was the only time Red River could come in while it was fall break.  For organizations that need to turn in a banner and music for homecoming lipsync & homecoming hunnies, please swing by the union room 214 on Sunday between 5pm - 8pm. We apologize for any inconvenience.  ​
    • Cans for the can food drive are due by Wednesday by noon to Campus Living Villages Columns clubhouse.  
    • Remember to let us know by email to how many people you expect to participate in lipsync so we can reserve the wristbands for your organization at the Will Call booth in A.A. Fredericks.  We will open up the house at 5:30 pm on Thursday for the participants and then 6:30pm for spectators.  Each student will receive his/her wristband from an SAB member upon their arrival to A.A. Fredericks. 
    • The weather for Monday looks pretty likely it will rain, if so the rainsite for the Homecoming Block Party is the Student Union Ballroom and Lobby. 

    Thanks again for participating in the Homecoming Week Festivities!!!  SAB members are really excited for the events!!

    Hello RSO members,

    Thank you all for participating in the first session of Freshman Connection!  With all of the craziness of the schedule changing due to weather (and for it to end up being a wonderful and beautiful day), we truly appreciate everyone’s help and cooperation.  To better serve you all, we have created an evaluation for the F.C. Session for the org fair.  Please go to the F.C. Post Event Evaluation Form on orgsync. The sooner we get evaluations back the sooner we can improve on the event!    

    You will also see on the evaluation a question about an RSO workshop.  We know that each organization has its own struggles but not a lot of you utilize the resources we have on campus to improve you and your members experience within your organization.  So we are developing a workshop just for you all and we would love to hear back any ideas you have for the workshop. 

    Thank you again for serving!

  • 11-13-2012: The 37th Great American Smokeout ...... Thursday, November 15th

    The American Cancer Society is marking the 37th Great American Smokeout on November 15 by encouraging smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day. By quitting — even for one day — smokers will be taking an important step towards a healthier life – one that can lead to reducing cancer risk.

    Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the US, yet about 43.8 million Americans still smoke cigarettes — Nearly 1 in every 5 adults. As of 2010, there were also 13.2 million cigar smokers in the US, and 2.2 million who smoke tobacco in pipes — other dangerous and addictive forms of tobacco.

    More Information About Quitting

    Quitting is hard, but you can increase your chances of success with help. The American Cancer Society can tell you about the steps you can take to quit smoking and provide anti-smoking programs, resources and support that can increase your chances of quitting successfully. To learn about the available tools, call us at 1-800-227-2345.

    Dead Week
    No Activity
    For
    Recognized Student Organizations
    Period of: December 2 – 13, 2012

    “The Department of Student Activities prohibits programming from the 3rd day before finals through the last day of finals, commonly known as dead week. This is to ensure that students focus on academic achievement.” RSO Manual


    Dead Week

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Dead week is a slang term for the week before schools' final examinations in the United States of America. The week is known thus because of its notorious stress; the propensity for college and university students to save exam study until the last possible week; and because term papers are often due. Students prepare for the exams and papers by pulling all-night study sessions, often with the aid of stimulants such as coffee, caffeine tablets, Adderall, and energy drinks. During this period, some students will suffer from sleep deprivation, increased irritability, and stress. At some schools, this week is referred to as Hell Week, Reading Period, or Reading Week.
    Many campus dormitories/residence halls require near silence for most of the day during the week before finals, to aid to those studying for their finals or writing papers. Depending on the school there may also be a moratorium on paper assignments, exams, and student organizational activities during dead week. Libraries may also be open for extended hours, or might stay available all night.

  • 09-24-2012: From the desk of Reatha Cox .......Creator of The Evolution of Dance™ to Visit Northwestern State University!

    In March of 2001, Judson Laipply performed for the first time in public a program finale that would one-day take the world by storm. After mixing together 12 popular dance songs from the last 50 years Judson debuted “The Evolution of Dance™” and it instantly became a crowd favorite. Five years and 18 songs later, Laipply placed a video of the 30 song six-minute “The Evolution of Dance” on little known site called. No one could have predicted what followed.
    In the next few months the video became a viral sensation and was passed from e-mail to e-mail, posted in countless blogs, discussed on endless talk shows and podcasts, and the entire world watched as the video amassed over 70 millions views in under 8 months and helped propel to the status it has today. To date it has been viewed over 150 million times and is the third most popular video of all time on.
    The popularity of the video has lead to appearances on the Today Show, Ellen, Inside Edition, E!, Oprah, and hundreds of other media outlets around the world. He has also been in two music videos - one for Bare Naked Ladies and one for Weezer, performed at halftime of the NBA finals, and continues to bring laughter into the lives of all those who watch it.
    Come see The Evolution of Dance this Tuesday, September 25 at 8:00 PM in Magale Recital Hall!

    If you would like for us to advertise for your event, please send the Name/Date/Time/Location of your event to by Friday, August 3, 2012. We will do our best to put as many events on the calendar as we can.

    Cane River Creole National Historical Park Hosts National Park Week Events April 21-29


    Cane River Creole NHP will be doing its part to celebrate National Park Week by hosting a volunteer clean-up day on April 21, and Junior Ranger Day on April 28.

    On April 21 families, students, scouts, and anyone else is invited to help park staff clean historic buildings and visitor use areas at Oakland Plantation. We will also be planting our spring garden with cotton, okra, and other vegetables. The cleanup will take place between 9am and 12pm. If you are interested in helping please let us know ahead of time by calling 318 356-8441.
    On April 28 children and families are invited to visit Oakland Plantation for Junior Ranger Day. Junior Ranger Activity Stations will be set up throughout the park. Children will be able to experience what it was like to shop at the plantation store, learn how cotton went from the field to the factory, and create their own original piece of folk art. After completing each station, Junior Rangers will receive a badge, certificate, and patch. The Junior Ranger Activity Stations will be open between 10am-4pm.
    On April 21, 22, 27, 28, and 29 at Cane River Creole NHP’s Magnolia Plantation Complex, visitors will be screening the National Park documentary “This is America”. The documentary is a 45 minute companion film to the critically acclaimed Ken Burns National Park film recently seen on PBS. This film will be shown throughout the day upon request
    National Park Week, which lasts until April 29 is the perfect time to re-visit or visit for the first time your local National Park. The park’s two plantations, Oakland and Magnolia are open seven days a week. Magnolia, home of one of the oldest cotton presses in existence is open for self-guided tours during the week, with guided tours provided on the weekends. Guided tours are provided at Oakland every day. Each plantation is home to numerous original structures which help tell the story of the Creole culture.
    “America’s national parks have something for everyone,” said Director Jarvis. “Take a break and experience something new, enjoy some fresh air, get some exercise, and see where history happened. And, since admission is free to all 397 parks, all week long, National Park Week is a great time to get up, get out, and explore a park.”
    Cane River Creole NHP’s Oakland and Magnolia Plantations are open seven days a week from 8am-4pm except on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. To reach Oakland Plantation, take I-49 to Exit 127, Flora/Cypress. Head east on LA Highway 120 toward Cypress. Once you reach the LA Highway 1 intersection cross over LA Highway 1 onto LA Highway 494. The parking lot and entrance pavilion for Oakland are 4.5 miles east of Highway 1 on the left.
    To reach the grounds of Magnolia Plantation, take I-49 to Exit 119, Derry. Head east on LA Highway 119. Cross over LA Highway 1 and proceed for two miles.

    The Committee on Organizations meeting will be on Thursday, January 26th at 2:00 p.m. in room 221 of the Student Union. RSO presidents and advisors are invited to attend.

    Stated below is the policy on a minimum of 2.0 semester grade point average to be eligible to be an officer or a member of an organization.

    From Recognition Student Organization Manual – Page 31

    V. Regulations Governing Recognized Student Organizations

    Northwestern State University recognizes the right of groups to freely assemble, but also accepts the responsibility to protect the rights of members of the campus community from organizations which infringe upon the purposes of Northwestern State University and the Board of Supervisors of the University of Louisiana System.

    ANY ORGANIZATION SHALL BE OPEN TO ALL STUDENTS OF NORTHWESTERN STATE UNIVERSITY WHO OTHERWISE MEET MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS. AN ORGANIZATION MAY NOT DENY MEMBERSHIP ON THE BASIS OF RACE, NATIONAL ORIGIN, GENDER, AGE, RELIGION, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, DISABILITY, OR STATUS AS A VETERAN (EXCLUSION BASED ON GENDER IS APPLICABLE BASED ON TITLE IX EDUCATION AMENDMENTS).

    A. The Northwestern State University Committee on Organizations shall exercise jurisdiction over all recognized student organizations at Northwestern State University
    B. Membership in student organizations shall be limited to currently enrolled NSU students with a minimum of 2.0 semester grade point average. Members falling below this minimum standard will be placed on probation for the next semester until sufficient academic progress is made and verified by the advisor.
    C. To be eligible for election to or to serve as an officer of an organization, or in any elected or appointed position, a member must be a full-time NSU student in good standing with the University and maintain both a cumulative and previous semester 2.0 grade point average.
