Rachel - 04/18/2022

Southeastern University has a beautiful campus, friendly staff, and a very inviting atmosphere. I felt very at-home there and I am extremely excited to be able to attend the school this coming fall. Both of my parents attended there about 25 years ago and are both very proud of how much it has grown.

Sherryon - 11/29/2021

My opinion Southeastern University is mainly my goal after graduating to be in attendance. I have been in the Upward Bound program since the ninth grade and I have been attending Southeastern University on Saturdays and in the summer time for the Upward Bound program. I think that this school will be a good fit for me because I am familiar and I'm ready to get started and set out the plants to achieve my goals.

Jonathan - 07/06/2021

Im very excited to be part of the Fire Family this fall and grow into a better version of myself! There’s so much I am looking forward to such as networking and building myself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It’s going to be an experience as a transfer coming into this welcoming family.

Deborah - 03/23/2021

My opinion of Southeastern University is that more people should be applying to this school. I mean, it's got everything! Awesome professors (seriously, no flies on Professor Guzman), a beautiful campus, and a very diverse student body (seriously, Southeastern is like the most diverse Christian university in Polk County). Please, more people should apply to Southeastern University ooooo.

    well, I would tell myself to be very patient.

I would tell me/her to be more self motivated than I am now. But while there are many details that I would change from my college experience, the same could be said of the rest of life, and I am who I am now because of what I've gone through and accomplished. Then I would wish myself luck, and watch to see what happens.

  8. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    Southeastern location can be a hinderance. A blessing if you have means of transportation. The school does not offer shuttles to get going to the groccery store. It is a blessing because students are right in between the tampa and orlando, where jobs, internships, and fun can be had. I remember trying to get around last year was a little hecktive. I even tried to get the bus, but because it is in a small town the bus stops running early. Also Southeatern does not offer enough schlorship oppurtunies for the students. Scholarships for intened majors are very scarce.
