At Southeastern, my favorite thing is that the professors are willing to go above and beyond for you. They want to see you succeed! My least favorite thing is the 45 minute commute to campus, but that's no fault of theirs. Parking on the other hand, is. I think that is the worst thing about SELU. Commuters are often found circling the parking lots like sharks. They have a variety of food: Subway, Panda Express, Chick-Fil-A, Tacobell, Starbucks, etc. There are multiple places around campus to sit and study or talk with friends. There are strategically placed computer labs to help students, which I found to be helpful multiple times.

Incredibly fun and engaging school! Everyone is there to help you become a better student.

Before I got accepted into any of the schools I had applied for, I was heavily considering attending LSU for the 2019 fall semester. Now that I've been at SLU for a while, I know that SLU is definitely the superior choice!

Classes and books are cheaper, campus is smaller and easier to navigate, cafeteria food is near-perfect and professors are always ready to talk to you about anything.
I love that southeastern is such a big yet small place. It is so easy to make new friends; because I thought it would be hard to meet new people my freshman year but they literally just walked up to me and now I have an amazing group of friends! The school work is not difficult if you learn what ways of studying help you understand better. The extracurricular activities are always fun things to do if you or your friends are bored in the dorms(plus you meet new people that way also). The cafe food is great and the atmosphere is peaceful. The lunch ladies/men are funny and enjoyable, they really love getting to know you. The teachers vary from student to student. Overall southeastern is an amazing school and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, fun and peaceful university!
