We're counting the days too.
Lion Up!


Calling all Southeastern alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends! Southeastern is celebrating Homecoming with a week of spirited activities, October 7 - 12.

We will celebrate Homecoming Day on October 12 with time-honored favorites such as tailgating in Friendship Circle, a spirit-filled parade, a wide variety of reunions, and football action in Strawberry Stadium.

The Homecoming Week schedule will encompass a ton of fun events from Gumbo Ya Ya and the Homecoming bonfire to the Alumni Reunion Pep Rally and the Alumni Awards Evening's recognition of the 2019 Alumnus and Young Alumnus of the Year. Feeling nostalgic and want to make a difference? Support this year's Giving Day, our biggest one-day effort to make an impact on the place that you love.

Traveling from out of town?  Be sure to check out our travel packages that bundle everything you need to celebrate Homecoming!

Time to show your lion pride - come home for Homecoming 2019!


We would like to give a special thanks to our sponsors, Southeastern’s Student Government Association and Hammond Square!
