I love everything about Southeastern! I am a Freshman, and ever since I’ve started, I’ve felt so welcome by my advisors, professors, and other students. I feel like it’s truly one big huge family of the students and even the professors and faculty. The professors never fail to help you, their math labs and writing centers are extremely helpful, and the free tutoring and counseling is beyond excellent!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time so far at Southeastern. My biggest suggestion for anyone interested in coming to this school is to get involved with the school and your education. Once you take this step, going to school no longer seems so boring and forced. I have loved getting involved and forming connections throughout my two years here. Everyone is super friendly and understanding. It has made me want to stay in school. It has given me a drive that I did not know I had. Without getting involved, I probably would not have enjoyed my experience near as much. I may have even dropped out. Please, do yourself a favor and get involved!
Southeastern Louisiana University is a wonderful school for students to work hard but relax at the same time. There are tons of student made clubs for many to enjoy, and many after school activities planned by SLU. The campus is clean and the teachers are personable with their students. It's an overall positive environment to be around!
