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.
Review Southeastern University
Southeastern University is better than any university experience you could ever imagine. It comes at a pretty penny. But no doubt, the staff and faculty of the school want to inspire and see their students succeed. You can't put a price on that. To anyone that is on the fence about going to college or finishing their degree, I would strongly recommend heading straight to SEU!
Southeastern is a wonderful school! It has a strong, Christian atmosphere, with many chapels to choose from each week. The school is focused on making sure that the students have opportunities for Bible studies and prayer. It also has a great academic program. The professors are caring, and the class sizes are small, so you always can get to know your professor. The campus is beautiful and is located in between Orlando and Tampa, so there are a lot of great internships available in those cities. Also, there are a lot of activities for students, so there is no chance of getting bored!
