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.
Since July 2012, Southeastern has recycled more than 56 tons of paper, plastic and metal cans. Additionally, 19 bales of cardboard have been collected and bundled for resale. Used printer cartridges also have been collected for resale. In addition to saving these items from landfill disposal, Southeastern has realized an incremental source of revenue from the collected cardboard and printer cartridges that will help to fund sustainable initiatives on campus.
One of Southeastern's newest student organizations is the first and only of its kind in Louisiana. Student United Way works closely with the Southeast Louisiana United Way to help local partner agencies. The organization was approved as an official chapter in August, joining approximately 70 other Student United Way chapters at universities, community colleges and high schools across the nation.
