For the ninth consecutive year, Southeastern Louisiana University has been named a Military Friendly® School for 2021-2022.
Viqtory Media, publisher of “G.I. Jobs,” states the listing honors the top colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace the nation’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and to ensure their success on campus. Southeastern enrolls 557 veteran and military service members. The university maintains a Veterans Upward Bound program; has an Office of Military and Veteran Success that assists students in obtaining benefits and with other issues; provides academic and other counseling services; offers scholarships specifically for military students and veterans; and maintains a wide range of online and distance learning programs that provide students with flexibility in scheduling. Southeastern’s ROTC program, which is a subunit of the Southern University Army ROTC program, returned to Hammond in 2016 after more than a 20-year hiatus. Fifty-five students now participate in the program.
