Student Blog: The Art of Improvisation

Last semester, I had the amazing opportunity to join Unpland Improv, Southeastern’s improvisational comedy team. Unpland Improv gives students the opportunity to pursue their passions, use their gifts and think on their feet in order to make people laugh. It has been an absolute blast being part of the team and doing something I love. We act out crazy scenarios, make outrageous puns and occasionally burst out in song. ... More


Student Blog: Being a Missionary Kid at SEU

Just two years before beginning college, my family moved back to the United States from Mexico, where my parents had been serving as missionaries since I was 11. When I started at Southeastern University, I still felt very out of place in the U.S. I was fully out of touch with “pop” culture and struggled to reconcile my love for my “home” and the nationality everyone assumed I was. To ... More


Student Blog: Social Work Students Minister in Honduras

You know those moments when you’re just at a loss for words because of how great our God is? That’s how I felt after my trip to Honduras. I was sitting in one of my social work classes this past fall as my professor began to explain an opportunity to travel to Honduras in February 2016. The main focus of the trip would be to minister to girls who ... More


Student Blog: 5 Things to Know About the College of Education

I still remember my first College of Education (COE) meeting my first semester at Southeastern University. It was exciting, intimidating and somewhat confusing. As I listened to faculty members and upperclassmen talk, I began to wonder what being an education major would really look like. It sounded both wonderful and really, really frightening. My new major sounded like everything I ... More

Student Blog: Plugging in as a Commuter Student

Approximately 1,000 students commute to SEU’s campus for classes and comprise about 22% of the total student population.

Student Blog: Higher Education as a Calling

Whether you are attending Southeastern University or feel led to come here as a student, you have a calling on your life toward higher education. We usually think of college as a steppingstone to our real calling or vocation, sort of like parentheses in life, but in reality, if you are or soon will become a college student (whether at SEU or elsewhere), college is your calling. So, ... More

Student Blog: The Importance of Community

The Oxford English Dictionary defines community as “a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests and goals.” Before college, I never understood the importance of community — when in reality, I’ve always been a part of it. I had a strong group of Christian friends during high school who I now realize, looking back on ... More
