I am writing today on behalf of the 15,000 students who have chosen Southeastern Louisiana University to achieve their higher education goals.

We want to thank members of the Legislature for their efforts thus far. We truly appreciate those who have chosen to make the difficult votes that will hopefully provide a means for Southeastern to continue helping us reach those goals. After all, attainment of those goals will enable us to become productive and conscientious members of society.

We realize there will be more tough votes before the session ends. Please know that Southeastern’s student body stands with you when you make those choices that will allow Southeastern to prepare us with the experience and knowledge necessary for our success.
