Southeastern Louisiana University | Broadcast Education Association
Southeastern’s chapter of the Broadcast Education Association is a student organization that invites all Communication majors with an interest in television and radio broadcast to come explore the field of broadcasting. We hold weekly meetings where we hold discussions about our interest in the field, invite guest speakers to share their experiences, and do activities to build on our own experiences.
