Welcome Week


Join us for a Southeastern Welcome Week Experience coordinated by the Division of Student Affairs. Welcome Week provides new and returning Southeastern students with various programming and information to assist them in making Southeastern their home away from home. Students have the opportunity to get to know each other and the campus while becoming comfortable with campus life. Welcome Week activities promote the development of the whole student and aids in retention and progression.
