The Lion's Roar is the official newspaper of the students of Southeastern Louisiana University. The Lion's Roar is planned, written, designed and produced by the students of Southeastern Louisiana University working in the Office of Student Publications. The offices of Student Publications, The Lion's Roar, and Le Souvenir, are located on the first floor of the War Memorial Student Union in suite 1303. Normal office hours are from 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday - Thursday and 7:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. on Friday. The Lion's Roar provides a voice for the student body and the Southeastern community. As such, our talented newspaper staff provides both individuals and groups at the University a vehicle to publicize activities and events of relevance to the University community. As a weekly publication, The Lion's Roar provides the campus community with an ongoing forum for the expression of ideas and opinions in a free and open environment, and for the exchange and dissemination of information. The Lion's Roar, its associated websites and digital versions are designated public forums. Student editors have the authority to make all content decisions without censorship or advance approval. As a student-run publication, staff members also benefit from the opportunity to learn and improve writing, reporting, editing, photography, layout and graphic design skills. Student organizations, Greek fraternities and sororities, clubs, associations or any campus-recognized groups are encouraged to contact the staff of The Lion's Roar if they desire coverage of events or activities. Any campus-recognized group may submit an article to be included in the Organizational News section of the newspaper. Staff members strive to include as much as they can from week to week, but self-identification by individuals or groups is the best way to ensure coverage in the paper. Additionally, the staff attempts to provide individual students or members of the community ample opportunity to have their opinion and viewpoint included in the paper by submitting a Letter to the Editor.
