Our campus is growing! In the fall of 2016, we opened 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!
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 award is $27,478 (including loans), and more than 98% of our students receive financial aid.
Our campus is in sunny Lakeland, Florida, where 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.
The Fire compete in 16 sports in the NAIA, with 14 of them belonging to the Sun Conference. Football and wrestling compete in the Mid-South Conference. SEU has won several conference championships in the past few years.
