HAMMOND – More than 170 area high school seniors and their guests attended two Southeastern
Louisiana University Scholars Showcase events last week (Feb. 16 and 18), where students
were offered special academic and housing scholarships.
In all, more than 825 Louisiana students with ACT scores ranging from 23 to 34 were offered guaranteed scholarships. The scholarships are four-year awards that are renewed each year depending upon student academic performance.
At the two events, held in the university’s Student Union Grand Ballroom, the high school students and parents visited with faculty representing the university’s colleges and academic offerings.
The guests also heard from young alumni of the university who told of their experiences at Southeastern and encouraged the students to become involved in campus life as a way to fully appreciate the university experience.
