    My experience at Southeastern University was tremendous. There were many upsides to the program: it's online courses, brilliant professors, and an incredible college community. During my time at Southeastern, I was highly involved in extracurricular activities in the community and at my church. Because of this, I thought it could have been difficult to identify classes that fit my schedule. However, I was always able to find a course online that I could do on my own schedule. Professors were intelligent, hands-on, and clear at communicating due dates for projects and assignments. All of these components, plus the fact that the community is welcoming, engaging, and joyful made my time in college unforgettable. I highly recommend Southeastern University!

    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.
    Southeastern is an amazing university. Even though i am doing remote for the fall semester, i still feel like i am apart of seu! The environment is very welcoming and friendly. They have a lot clubs and activites for every student. Lastly, they have a very passionate worship group, chapels are amazing and encouraging!
