During the spring and summer Southeastern hosts a series of orientation programs, inviting students who have been accepted for the upcoming fall, spring or summer term to get a jump on their transition to college. This program is filled with informative and fun activities that introduce students to college life and the great programs Southeastern has to offer.
Students are assigned to small groups with student Orientation Leaders to experience college life first hand and to learn what it takes to be successful at Southeastern. From policies and procedures to meeting with faculty and staff and registering for classes, participants get a crash course in College 101.
Invitations for students starting in the spring semester, invitations will go out in the later part of the fall semester and for those starting in the fall semester invitations will go out starting in the middle of April.
Not only does orientation prepare our Beginning Freshman students for college; we also help ease the transition for your family members as well. Each orientation program, we host a family orientation session where we will discuss topics such as scholarships, financial aid, and auxiliary services, just to name a few. Visit our dedicated parent website to learn more about services offered to your students.
At each orientation program, students are separated into small color groups. In this session you will get to know more about what Southeastern has to offer, plus meet with your Orientation Leaders. Orientation Leaders are your guides, teachers, peer advisors, mentors, and most of all, your friends. Each student will be assigned a special color group before they attend their scheduled orientation program.
At orientation you will be able to enjoy lunch in our Mane Dish. This state-of-the art facility allows restaurant style dining with a variety of nutritious dining choices that fit in with your lifestyle. Visit Campus Dish for information on meal plans, dining locations, and hours of operation.
