Football Season Kickoff & Lion Statue Unveiling

Ready to ROAR? The wait is over! Lion Football is BACK! Lion Up as your Southeastern Lions take on Jacksonville State this Thursday, Aug. 29 at 7 pm in Strawberry Stadium. 

We'll see all of Lion Nation for tailgating prior to kickoff - and a special event to kick off the season! Lion fans are invited to gather in Friendship Circle near Strawberry Stadium at 5:30 pm to witness the unveiling of Southeastern’s new Lion statue. Brief remarks will be shared as we introduce the newest addition to the heart of campus, which was made possible thanks to the Student Government Association. Learn more >
