DURANT, Okla. – Southeastern Oklahoma State University hosted SE Live Open House and Native American Visitation Day Wednesday with approximately 150 prospective students, their families and high school teachers on the Durant campus.

There was something for everyone on the agenda. Students had the opportunity to explore the campus, attend class and learn more about how to access the resources they need to become successful in higher education.

The day started with a welcome session in Montgomery Auditorium.

The students then joined rotating sessions with small groups. Sessions included “Breaking Out of Your Comfort Zone,” “Money Matters,” and a College Success Class.”

A parent session was held from 10-11 a.m. in the Glen D. Johnson Student Union, followed by campus tours.

Noon to 1 p.m. featured Lunch in the Ballroom, plus the Academic Department and Student Life Fair in the Magnolia Room for both students and parents. Lunch was sponsored by Durant’s First United Bank.

Chorale, band, athletics and the aviation program hosted open houses from 1-1:50 p.m.

Optional sessions starting at 2 p.m. included band and choral auditions, and additional campus tours.

SE Live and Native American Visitation Day is held twice a year to better acquaint high school students with Southeastern and the college experience.
