Golden Silence Memorial

Southeastern has always been known for fostering a strong family atmosphere among our students, faculty, and staff. It is what sets us apart from many other institutions. Once a Lion, always a Lion.

Each spring, the Southeastern Alumni Association hosts the Golden Silence Ceremony. The annual event brings the campus community together for a remembrance ceremony in honor of members of the Southeastern family – students, faculty, alumni, staff, and friends of the University – who passed away the previous year.
