It is advertised very well, but once you get here, you realize a lot of what they don't tell you. They especially false advertise the spiritual development on campus. You see these big events, well that is all they are, hype. The sermon will be 20 minutes the pastor talking about himself, and 5 minutes actually about the bible. You will hear "Can I get an Amen?!" more than you will God's name. If you want fun, come to SEU! But if you actually want to grow deeper in your faith, go anywhere else.

I really enjoy being a student at Southeastern University! The school defiantly has it's pros and cons as would any, but my overall experience has been great! I would recommend Southeastern to any student who whats to pursue and education doing what they love. The culture and community is very diverse yet inviting. There is a place for everyone to get involved.
I am an extension site student for Southeastern University (main campus located in Lakeland, FL) and it has been great! I have been able to learn what it means to be involved in ministry at a high-capacity church. In addition, I have consistently been taught on leadership as well as spiritual principles. The professors as well as the site staff are focused on the students' spiritual growth and their fulfilling their specific life callings. If not for this school program, I may not have had as much experience in ministry as I have had up to this point.
