HAMMOND---Southeastern Louisiana University turns 91 on September 14. Lions everywhere are encouraged to join in celebration of all things Green and Gold!

 

Students, faculty, and staff are invited to enjoy cupcakes at a birthday celebration on Sept. 14 starting at 10 am in the Student Union, under the covered breezeway near the bookstore. This event is sponsored by the Campus Activities Board.

 

Southeastern Louisiana University began as a grass-roots movement by the people of Hammond and the surrounding area, who recognized the need for an institution of higher education in order to further the educational, economic and cultural development of southeast Louisiana.

 

President Linus A. Sims opened our doors on September 14, 1925 with a faculty of three women, two men and forty students. What began as a junior college supported by local taxes has developed into a major university as Southeastern has grown to meet the evolving needs of southeast Louisiana.
