Southeast’s chapter of Young Americans for Liberty hosted a recruitment drive and petition signing against the university’s dry campus policy, which bars students from possessing or consuming alcohol on campus or at university-sponsored events unless specifically authorized.

Young Americans for Liberty (YAL), led by sophomore President Zeb Parris, is a new student group at Southeast. The national organization works to extend its mission to, “identify, educate, train and mobilize youth activists to make liberty win,” according to the YAL website.

Southeast welcomed back alumnus Nick Cutelli for Homecoming weekend with the opportunity to teach a theater master class at Southeast River Campus on Oct. 25.


“It’s good to be back,” Cutelli said. “It’s good to see how everything has grown and gotten bigger.”


Cutelli took a trip down memory lane as he shared changes he saw during his campus visit, as compared to when he graduated from Southeast in 2006.

Southeast’s River Campus went back in time with the adaption of “Ain’t Misbehavin’” at Rust Flexible Theatre on Oct. 10 through 13.

The Fats Waller Musical-inspired show takes the audience back to Harlem in the 1920s and ‘30s. It is a tribute to black musicians during the Harlem Renaissance, a time of creativity, ethnic pride and cultural awareness.

Instructor of musical theatre and pianist Joshua Harvey said the Second Stage Series is a show done on a budget, using only a piano, and a way to highlight more students who don’t always get lead parts.
