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 »

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.

Mission Statement
Southeastern's mission is to lead the educational, economic and cultural development of southeast Louisiana.
Core Values
Southeastern's core values of excellence and caring reflect who we are and what you can expect from us.



Campus Recycling Program

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.

Live (and Learn) United

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.
