Transforming Minds. Engaging Culture.
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 80 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!
We recently opened our 125,000-sq. ft. Buena Vida live/learn facility that includes new residence halls, visual and performing arts spaces, a Bloomberg financial lab, and a food court. Construction is also underway for a brand-new welcome center.
Your spiritual development is the very core of our mission. Through chapel services, mission trips, community outreach, faith integration in the classroom, and much more, your faith will be strengthened daily.
Our student-led worship band writes original songs, leads chapel services, and professionally produces albums every year. As of December 2019, SEU Worship had reached more than 26 million streams on Spotify.
College is a significant investment, and we provide numerous financial aid options to make SEU accessible to all students. Our average SEU award is $17,000, and more than 98% of our students receive financial aid. In fact, we awarded more than $29.4 million in scholarships in the 2018–2019 academic year alone.
Our campus is in sunny Lakeland, Florida, where students are treated to great weather and outdoor activities throughout the year. Lakeland has just the right balance of hometown connectivity and city-based excitement. SEU is also centrally located to 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. During the 2018–2019 school year, the Fire won eight Sun Conference championships and claimed the conference’s Commissioner’s Cup for the first time in school history.
In spring 2018, SEU Fire baseball made school history by becoming the first SEU team to secure a nation-al title—they won the NAIA World Series! After the series, three players were chosen in the 2018 MLB Draft.
One of the greatest parts of our community at SEU is the mentoring our students receive. From faculty to staff to coaches, we have no shortage of people at SEU who are ready to guide you in your academic and spiritual walk.
