A Southeastern Tradition

Southeastern chose the lion as its mascot in 1931 and settled on the name in 1964 to honor a beloved professor. Many students have portrayed "Roomie" over the years, but by tradition nobody knows who's inside the Lion suit. More Traditions »

Welcome to Southeastern Louisiana University

We are the state's third-largest public university, boasting more than 15,600 students and more than 60 degree programs. But with a small-town location, personal attention to students and a close-knit community of engaged learners, we feel like a small college. We are passionate about our students, providing them with a challenging college experience that empowers them with a lifelong education.

Safety at Southeastern

Numerous safety measures – including an electronic emergency alert system and on-campus code blue emergency phones – ensure our campus remains a safe place to live and learn. Significant steps have been taken to ensure the wellbeing of students, faculty, staff and visitors on campus. In addition to the many security measures already in place, daily personal safety is encouraged among the university community.
