HAMMOND – Local businessman Jonathan Wong recently treated Southeastern’s international students to dinner at the Mezzanine Event Center.

The purpose of the dinner was to connect international students to the Hammond community and to discuss student possibilities, as well as concerns.

“It was really a nice evening, opening with a welcome on behalf of Southeastern from Vice President for University Advancement Wendy Lauderdale and a welcome on behalf of the City of Hammond from Mayor Pete Panepinto, who gave everyone in attendance his phone number to allow for better, open communication,” said Office for Student Engagement Interim Director Marjorie Parker. “The warm welcomes concluded with a message from the host himself, Jonathan Wong. He discussed his desire to have a better connection with international students and engage them in the Hammond area.”

A complimentary full course dinner of fried fish, red beans and rice and Caesar salad was provided for over 100 students in attendance, as well as international faculty and staff. Southeastern also provided its shuttle service to transport the students to and from the dinner.
