HAMMOND, La. (WAFB) - Wednesday, Aug. 17 marks day one of the school year for the Lions at Southeastern. Students, faculty and staff will be making their way to campus in the hours to come.

Activities have already begun and will continue throughout the first few weeks of the fall semester.

Campus leaders are keeping safety in mind and want students, teachers and the community to know about the Lion Safe APP. It’s a safety app that allows users to connect live with UPD 24/7 to do virtual safety walks, virtual blue phones, report a tip, campus map, and Lion Traxx tracker and support resources. You can get it for free in the Google Play and Apple stores. You can also check out the UPD TikTok page for how-to videos on each of the features of the app.

Southeastern is welcoming students with “The Mane Experience.” They’re kicking off the new year with programming and activities for new and returning students. Activities have already begun and will continue throughout the first few weeks of the fall semester.
