Christian Life Profile

Who do you want to be?

Choosing the right college isn’t just about getting an education. It’s about finding a place that gets you ready for a career and a lifetime of service to others. Southeastern University gives you the foundation needed to succeed in life, not just at work. SEU has more than 70 degree programs to choose from, as well as a real community where you’ll build relationships that will last a lifetime. Our campus is growing, with the fall 2016 opening of our 125,000-sq. ft. live/learn facility that includes new residence halls, visual and performing arts space, a Bloomberg finance terminal lab, and a food court with Papa John’s, Einstein Bagels, and Back Yard Burgers. It’s an exciting time to join the Fire family!

Spiritual life
Through chapel services, mission and outreach events, faith integration in the classroom, and other special events, your faith will be forged daily. Nearly 100 of our faculty and staff members commit each semester to disciple students through our Connect mentoring groups. Your spiritual development is central to our mission.


College is a significant investment, and we provide numerous financial aid options to make SEU accessible to all students. Our average SEU scholarship award is over $18,000 per year, and more than 98% of our students receive financial aid.

Our campus is in sunny Lakeland, Florida, meaning students are treated to great weather and outdoor activities throughout the year. Lakeland is a vibrant community with a small-town feel but plenty of things to do. If you’re looking for more, SEU is within an hour’s drive of some of the nation’s best beaches, as well as theme parks such as Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and Busch Gardens.

Our football program began play in 2014, adding another opportunity for our Fire athletes to compete for conference and national championships. In addition to football, we offer 16 sports that compete in the NAIA’s Sun Conference. In 2015–2016 we made five national tournament appearances, won three conference championships, and had eight teams ranked in the top 25.



Founded in 1935, Southeastern University is committed to its mission of equipping students to discover and develop their divine design to serve Christ and the world through spirit-empowered life, learning, and leadership.
