SE Live/Native American Visitation Day scheduled for February 5

DURANT, Okla. – Southeastern Oklahoma State University has scheduled the SE Live Open House and Native American Visitation Day for Wednesday, February 5, on the Durant campus.

Registration begins at 8:15 a.m., with the Welcome Session beginning at 9 a.m. in Montgomery Auditorium.

Native American Visitation Day allows students the opportunity to learn about Native American benefits, attend a class on Native American studies, and play a traditional game of stickball.

High school seniors and juniors, along with their parents and families, are

invited to experience life as a student at Southeastern during SE Live Open House.

More than 250 students attended the event this past fall.

“Students who come to SE Live will get the chance to attend college classes, meet current students, and really experience what life is like as a Southeastern student,” said Southeastern recruiter Hope Zachary.

Highlights include programs on Scholarships and Financial Aid, Southeastern Traditions, Residence Life, and Life as a Student Athlete. Campus tours will be offered throughout the day.

In the afternoon, students will have the opportunity to visit Eaker Field, home of the award-winning Southeastern Aviation Program.

Choir and band students will have a chance to rehearse with those programs and audition for music scholarships in the fall.

Entertainment throughout the day will be provided by performing groups from Southeastern, including the Sparks Dance Team, Cheer Squad, Emalea Hudgens, and the True Blue Ambassadors.

All students attending the event will receive an SE Sackpack and one free lunch ticket. Lunch is sponsored by Durant’s First United Bank.
