The community of friends who live in Southeastern student housing truly make Southeastern a "home away from home." For students who want a complete college experience, living on campus is the icing on the cake -- especially since all of the university's residence halls and apartments are new.
Southeastern has completed a $55 million dollar project that replaces old dormitories with eight new up-to-date residential communities. The communities, which include shared and private room floor plans, provide the technology-rich environment, space, privacy, and security that today's students want. Qualified students can also live in Southeastern Oaks, an apartment-style residence with two- and four-bedroom options, and the Village, where special interest groups such as fraternities and sororities are all housed together.
Studies show that living on campus increases academic success. In addition to the new comforts, students can also meet and mingle with a variety of people; they are right in the middle of campus social life; and everything-- from the library to classroom buildings to the state-of-the-art Pennington Student Activity Center-- is just a short walk away.
"One of the things I've enjoyed most about living on campus is the secure feeling of living in a residential community," said marketing major Bevann McCartney. "The onsite professional management has always been so helpful and I don't know what I would've done my first year without my community assistant. Not only was she a student like me, but she really helped me adjust to campus life. She was there for me anytime I needed her -- even if it was just to find my math class on the first day of classes!"
