What Students Are Saying

4.06 Average Rating
I think Southeastern is an amazing school. The campus is really big, but it is worth the walk. I can see myself excelling and being one of the top students in my class.
Elizabeth from Westwego, LA
I like Southeastern a lot, it has many benefits. One benefit is the school is smaller and very homey feeling. Another benefit is that the school always has something going on, or something to do. It is a very nice school and I love going there.
