HAMMOND - More than 200 area high school seniors and their guests attended Southeastern
Louisiana University Scholars Showcase events recently, where students were presented
with special academic and housing scholarship options.
The event celebrated the academic success of future Southeastern students and introduced them to special offerings Southeastern has for students with high academic credentials. In addition to scholarships, attendees were introduced to the possibility of participating in Southeastern’s Early Orientation, Honors Program courses and the Scholars Program, which invites qualified students to begin Southeastern with tuition-free summer semester classes.
Held in the university’s Student Union Grand Ballroom, attendees visited with faculty members representing the university’s colleges and academic offerings. Recent graduates also shared their experiences while at Southeastern, and encouraged the future students to become involved in campus life as a way to fully appreciate the university experience.
