Cool, Calm, and Connected
Student Union Ballroom
Many, many new experiences await you as you begin your journey and discover ways to Connect with Campus including learning about student organizations, leadership opportunities, and campus services. We'll start with an interactive icebreaker for you and the organizational representatives and follow up with time to visit with representatives from both organizations and campus services in a table-browse format.
Major -- Minor Fair
Student Union Ballroom
Are you currently unsure about what major or career you want to pursue? Or, perhaps you already know everything about your major, but you want to learn what other majors and minors are available at Southeastern. At this session you will have the opportunity to meet with faculty, staff, and students representing over 44 majors and 47 minors that Southeastern offers. As part of your Southeastern 101 class, you will be given a guide to help you prepare and navigate through the fair in order to get the most out of this opportunity. This event is also open to students not currently enrolled in Southeastern 101.
Sexual Assault Awareness Program
Student Union Ballroom -- Rooms A, B, and C
"Is it ok to have sex with someone who has been drinking?" "What proactive steps can I take to protect myself?" "If I say 'yes' now, can I say 'no' later?" This presentation will provide students with education and information on Sexual Assault & Awareness during their college experience and beyond. In conjunction with Southeastern's Theatre Program, live dramatizations will illustrate a variety of scenarios and situations for students to process in terms of personal rights, safety, consent, Louisiana law, Southeastern policy, and available resources.
