20 Signs You Go To SELU

Southeastern Louisiana University has many unique attributes that you can’t get at other schools in the state. Here are 20 signs you go to SELU.

1. You dread going up to the 3rd floor in D. Vickers.

2. You know the fourth floor of the library is the best place to study.

This area of the library is the quietest and many students utilize this space for studying, especially during finals!

3. You own a lot of green and gold.

To showcase our school spirit, every student has a plethora of green and gold, from shirts to jewelry to car flags.

4. If you go here, you most likely commute.

5. And if you live on campus, you’re not there on the weekends.

Everyone knows the campus becomes a ghost town on the weekends and if you’re there, you either live far from home or are actually doing something school related.

6. You utilize the best of New Orleans.

The weekends are for exploring the best of this exciting city.

7. You have a collection of free t-shirts.

Whenever there’s some type of event going on, you can bet there’s a free shirt involved.

8. You look forward to Gumbo Ya Ya in the fall.

9. And Strawberry Jubilee in the spring.

10. It takes forever to find a parking spot.

Then you end up parking in the stadium parking lot.

11. You know the story behind friendship oak.

And if you don’t, look it up!
