    As an extension site student at Southeastern University, I have experienced some ups and downs. Southeastern's online courses are great and definitely have taught me a lot! The professors are often very helpful so long as you communicate with them. That being said, I've also had quite a lot of trouble with communication at Southeastern, particularly with their general staff rather than their professors. When it comes to financial aid, it's often difficult to contact their financial aid offices, though they're supposed to be fixing this a bit in coming years. Communication between their staff members can sometimes prove basically impossible with no response to emails, no one picking up the phone, and sometimes taking weeks or months to respond. However, everything else about Southeastern is great and I've gotten amazing hands on experience through my extension site.

    As the branch I attended opened when I was an entering freshman, I can say it was a unique experience. The grading system below is not due to the quality I experienced, as the usual university scene was not applicable. However, the professors I learned under were super encouraging, helpful, kind, and gracious. Many of my classes were eight weeks, and even in those short times I found my education to be exciting and fun. Also, the online professors from the main campus in Florida were extremely easy to talk to, patient, and respectful. The grading system was very fair and my GPA proved it to be true. SEU is a school I will always be grateful for, even if I only attended my freshman year. I wouldn't trade that year of learning for anything!
    Wednesday, August 29, 2018 - My first day of classes at SEU! My professors have been such kind hearted and genuine people, they love their students and the environment throughout this campus is full of love and joy. Everyone cares for one another and supportive and encouraging towards your goals and dreams. You don't get this on every campus and I'm so glad I did not give up on my perfect college search! We must trust the process in whatever it is that we want or need! This process was full of many prayers! God definitely blessed me with this university, I am so content and excited for what’s to come and what journey I'll be on for the years to come. I never thought that SEU would be the perfect school that God set out for me to go to since the very beginning of my upsetting journey with my two previous UCF rejection letters. But, as the general population says, "Everything happens for a reason!" :)
