A Southeastern Tradition

Traditions - Roomie

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 »

We are passionate about our students, providing them with a challenging college experience that empowers them with a lifelong education.

Meeting Nutritional Needs

Southeastern operates an on-campus food pantry to help meet the nutritional needs of its students. Located in room 226 of Mims Hall, the food pantry is operated by alumni and community volunteers. The pantry was established through funds from the "Phil the Pig" student philanthropy project, the Southeastern Foundation and the Office of Multicultural and International Student Affairs.
