On Thursday, November 13, Southeastern University’s board of trustees unanimously approved phase two of the university’s campus expansion, a construction project including three new buildings, a track and field facility, and a parking garage. As enrollment continues to soar – with student numbers expected to hit 4,200 next year — these new facilities will answer the need for additional housing, parking and classroom space, as well as bring new varsity sports to SEU, including wrestling, tumbling, track and field, and lacrosse.
“The expansion is part of a master plan we have been working on for the last four years,” said Executive Vice President Brian Carroll.
Phase one of construction included a football stadium and Chick-fil-A Express that were completed in fall 2014 and a Health Sciences Building that is well underway and is expected to be completed by spring.
Details of the plan include:
“This is a momentous day in the history of the Athletic Department at Southeastern University. We have continually emphasized a ‘next level’ mentality with the coaching staff. To see the administration make this kind of investment in giving us the tools to win championships is incredibly exciting,” said Director of Athletics Drew Watson.
“Adding new programs is one thing, but committing to those additions at a level where you’re doing it right and giving those programs a chance to compete out of the gate is what sets Southeastern apart from other institutions in how they approach athletics,” said Watson.
