Q.E…what?

17 Nov

Last week in chapel, Southeastern University finally unveiled what students have been wondering about all semester –

Watch out SEU. The Critics are Coming!

what is “it?” For months, a handful of university staff, faculty, and students worked on the details of “it.” However, even though they mentioned “it” was extremely important to the school, they refused to describe what “it” was. My advanced grammar professor  even joked around with students in class, saying that he had been working on “it” all night, and that “it” made him really tired. But he had to keep working on “it” for hours through the night because “it” was very, very important. Students were not only mind-boggled by what “it” meant, but they also because frustrated, wondering why “it” was kept such a secret.

But now, “it” has been revealed. It’s the Q.E.P. or Quality Enhancement Plan. Ok, so it might not sound that interesting, but it truly is vital to the success of Southeastern University. The Q.E.P. will prove that Southeastern is taking the necessary steps to improve the campus, ensuring accreditation for the next ten years.

I believe the public unveiling of the Q.E.P. was a great idea by the campus. Because it was discussed at chapel, the school reached a large number of students. In addition, it encouraged students to engage in discussion about the new plan with students who may have missed the announcement. Even though it’s been hard for students to remember the taglines (Think it, Link it, Live it), at least students recognize that SEU is actually taking steps toward improvement, something that the accreditation board likes to see. In my opinion, good job Southeastern!

P.S. The tagline “Think It, Link It, Live It” should not be confused with “Like It, Love It, Gotta Have It.” We’re not at Coldstone Creamery. Seriously, I heard a student say that was the tagline.

    Accreditation is crucial for any school, without it many of our credits would not count, and government funds who most likely disappear. It is great that Southeastern realizes how important this is to the students, and themselves. Their model idea was very creative and easy to remember. It is a good mindset to have in any situation when following your passions. I hope this school keeps trying to grow as a community by thinking, linking, and living together for Christ. We can accomplish so much through our student body, we just need to connect more and share our God dreams.

    You have a great voice throughout your writing. I was able to read this entire post without stopping because your tone and “voice” within your text sounded so conversational, yet still very professional. Were you in any AP english classes or creative writing classes in high school or here at SEU?

    “Like it, love it, gotta have it” <– that made me laugh. A lot.
