Welcome Week

Welcome Week is one of the most memorable experiences that you’ll have at Southeastern University. This will mark the beginning of your college career and your first steps into, perhaps, the greatest four years of your life. During these couple of days, you will get introduced to campus life, have a chance to get settled into your residence hall, and get to know our Student Development staff who will be guiding you through your journey here. Welcome Week is a time where students and parents can build upon the relationships started on opening day, be poured into spiritually, and get prepared for the transition into academia. We guarantee—whether you’re a new student or a parent of a new student—that you’ll feel welcomed into the Southeastern community as soon as you walk onto the campus. Check out the Spring 2020 Orientation Guide for more details.

Fire Card: Student ID

The Southeastern University Fire Card is a key element in experiencing campus life here at Southeastern. The Fire Card is currently used for many functions on campus. The Fire Card is necessary for identification, room access, meal access in the campus restaurant, laundry and printing/copying. The Fire Card can 
also be used as a debit card on campus. Money can be replenished on the Fire Card at any time during the year for purchases made in the café, Portico, the campus bookstore, and select off campus locations. For more information regarding the functions of the Fire Card, please contact the Campus Card Office at 863.667.5315 or via e-mail at campuscard@seu.edu.
