I am a Communication Sciences and Disorders major at Southeastern Louisiana University. I completed my Bachelor's Degree here and now I am working on my Master's Degree. The program is truly outstanding. I have learned so much from the teachers, the clinicals, the supervisors, the lectures, and my peers. Everyone is helpful. The teachers are so knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. They often provide extra help outside of the classroom. I am currently doing clinicals at Children's Hospital and it is a great experience. I am working with children who have language delays, language disorders, articulation disorders, Autism, Down's Syndrome, fluency disorders, and much more. I have had experience and guidance administering standardized tests and using appropriate individualized materials with each client. The program also has an In- House clinic which provides undergraduate students and new graduate students with the opportunity to interact with clients on campus at the Southeastern's Speech and Language Clinic, which also has lots of materials, tests, and helpful teachers and supervisors. I absolutely love everything I have experienced and I can't wait to learn more!

I absolutely love Southeastern! From the moment I set foot on campus for orientation I knew it was the place for me. It is not too big and not too small, it is just perfect in size. The faculty that I have had the pleasure to study under so far have been amazing. Everyone is helpful and there is an overall spirit of unity on campus. There are plenty of on campus activities to provide some fun and recreation time when you need a break. Also, for people of faith, there are several campus ministries available to participate in to help keep you spiritually focused and meet others of like faith. The atmosphere there is one that promotes friendships, strength, and academic greatness. But like with many things, it is what you make it. There is an abundance of resources, people, activities, support groups etc, but you must take advantage of them in order to benefit from them and experience all the school has to offer. I plan on getting all I can and would choose Southeastern all over again if given a chance to redo!

The dorms and apartments on campus have very active Resident assistants and lots of activities for the people in their buildings to learn about others and to give opportunity to bond. There is one building Pride hall that is all girls but the rest are co ed, we also have some that are honors dorms. Tangipahoa Hall for some reason has most of the crazy stories and people but is the closest to everything on campus. Village M is on north campus but they have a bus for you that drives you to campus and bus stops all around. Village M also has a nice first floor lobby, a basketball and volleball court backyard and while you are sharing a room, there's a wall that seperates half the room so it's private as well, plus it's in greek village!
