SEU Unveils Cornerstone Partnership with Lakeland Magic

Southeastern University has always had a heart for our Lakeland community.

Over the years, we have continued to invest in relationships with individuals and businesses within the surrounding area, believing that the Southeastern campus extends beyond Longfellow Boulevard.

Teaming Up

One of these new relationships is with the Lakeland Magic, the NBA G-League* affiliate of the Orlando Magic. “Hosting the Magic in Lakeland is a huge opportunity for our city,” said Dr. Kent Ingle, President of SEU. “Over the last few years, Lakeland has grown significantly, and invested heavily in developing its economic infrastructure and brand image. Having the Magic make Lakeland its home is a direct result of these efforts and will continue to enhance the image of Lakeland and the neighboring communities.”

Because of our commitment to the Lakeland community, Southeastern University has recently joined the Lakeland Magic as a Cornerstone Partner, and is the exclusive educational partner.

“We, at Southeastern University, are so proud of our community and the economic opportunities the partnership with the Magic will bring to Lakeland,” said Ingle. “As the exclusive educational partner of the Lakeland Magic, we are honored to contribute to this process. We are committed to the development of our Lakeland community, and we are looking forward to more opportunities to have a positive impact through this partnership.”   

In addition to branding opportunities for the university, the partnership will offer SEU students job and internship opportunities with both the Orlando and Lakeland Magic organizations.

The new Lakeland Magic court will be unveiled to the public at an open house event on Saturday, October 7, at the RP Funding Center from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
