Roll up your sleeves, and get to work. Learning at Southeast is about doing, so here you’ll take that lecture and put it to practice. And with a plethora of student activities, organizations, leadership opportunities, intramural sports and the rec center, you can do all that you like.
My team has become my family away from home. When we aren't practicing, you'll find us studying together, volunteering, or just chilling.
