International Orientation Resources

Welcome future Lions!

On behalf of the Office for Student Engagement and the  Office of Multicultural and International Student Affairs, we are excited to have you join our Southeastern family.  International Student Orientation is a program that gives new international students the opportunity to become comfortable at Southeastern providing information regarding services, policies, advising requirements, immigration counseling, and registration procedures. 

This year's International Orientation Program will be hosted on Southeastern’s campus in the Student Union, Room # 2207 (303 Union Ave, Hammond, LA 70402, Floor 2) on Thursday, August 11th 2022. Orientation will be held from 8 am to 6 pm CST.  The Wesley Center will be hosting an optional welcome dinner and tour of the food pantry.
