Southeastern University business students continued their tradition of excelling on the national stage last month.
SEU’s Enactus team, formerly called SIFE, travelled to the Enactus national expo in Kansas City in May to give their presentation after qualifying through regionals. This was the fourth consecutive year that SEU has advanced to nationals, but for the first time Southeastern placed in its section at the competition.
SEU finished as second runner-up in its league, placing behind Penn State and Southwest Minnesota State. The team received a trophy and recognition on state during the awards ceremony.
Among the projects that the team completed this past year was a butterfly garden at Southwest Middle School in Lakeland, which was featured in The Lakeland Ledger. The team also held a canned food drive and worked with the Transitions program for special needs students in Polk County, teaching them business and career skills.
