HAMMOND – To provide greater convenience for current students, Southeastern Louisiana
University is opening an additional location on its main campus to assist students
with their admissions, financial aid, records and registration needs. Enrollment Services
Express, the new multi-faceted office, is located in the Student Union, room 1301
and will officially open on Jan. 24 at 11:30 a.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony for
the campus and community.
The new space will be occupied by staff representatives from Southeastern’s offices of Admissions, Financial Aid, and Records and Registration, all of which currently reside exclusively on North Campus. According to Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Management Kay Maurin, the centrally-located Enrollment Services Express will allow current students to stop in for basic registration and enrollment assistance, as well as financial aid, without having to travel to North Campus.
“While not all issues can be addressed in this space, many can. The additional location eliminates the need for students to travel to various North Campus locations,” she said. “The goal is to make it easy and convenient for our current students.”
New students will also be important clients in the satellite location, Maurin added. All campus tours will originate in the space, and staff will be able to provide assistance with admissions applications and answer questions related to financial aid.
The office will also serve as the hub for the university’s orientation program, where orientation leaders and staff will train.
“We are thrilled to bring these services to the Student Union and continue with our mission of providing outstanding service to our new and current students,” Maurin said.
Southeastern President John L. Crain, Student Government Association Chief Justice Ali LeBlanc, Roomie the Lion and the 2018 Orientation Leader Team will all be in attendance at the ribbon cutting ceremony, which will include refreshments, Maurin added.
