First Year Experience

Our First Year Experience program helps set first-year students on the path toward discovering their divine design and integrates them into college life and our community. All first-year students are automatically enrolled into the First Year Experience programming.


Core Values

Students start learning these core values in our SEU 101 and 102 courses, which are required for all incoming freshman.

Academic Excellence – We see the classroom as a sacred space.

Discipleship – We are committed to becoming whole-life followers of Christ and being reformed in His image.

Community – We appreciate our shared values, diversity of thought and connectedness to each other.

Consistency – We strive to be a steady presence in the midst of chaos.

Gracious Living – We value others more than self.

“I came to Southeastern not wanting to leave my family and wondering how I would fit in. When I heard about Family Dinner, I was skeptical about going, but my roommate and friends convinced me to sign up. It was so nice sitting around a table with other students who were in the same boat as me. I left that night making real connections with other students and with a sense of family. Southeastern has become my family!”
