Could use far more parking for the amount of student they have. Also many of the buildings need improvements, structurally. Needs more accessibility improvements to buildings. Food is generally okay but it is never consistent, nothing will taste the same as it did last time. Next year they will be putting most of what's in the UC on Flex instead of meal swipes, and there will be a block plan for meals, which sucks actually.
I transferred here and love it so far. I feel like the University has done really well with COVID and keeping us all safe. There are a lot of resources on campus and people are nice and helpful. There aren't as many opportunities for scholarships as I would have hoped.
I love SEMO. The atmosphere and the people are truly amazing. There are so many great professors and I really enjoy going to classes and learning again, like I did as a child. Also, by searching the SEMO website, I found a lot of useful resources that helped me choose my major.
SEMO was my last choice school and I honestly only applied because my mom made me. I ended up picking it because of its affordability. Having said that I love going to SEMO! This school completely defied all my expectations. The campus is great and there is always something to do. There are lots of sports games to attend and intramural sports are very popular. Greek life has service as well as social fraternities and sororities. An abundance of leadership programs and academic groups exist. The River Campus is a hub for the arts and cultivates creativity. SEMO is affordable and diverse. People of all backgrounds attend and loads of scholarship opportunities exist. Cape Girardeau is a smaller city, but still has loads of stores and restaurants. The main street strip is filled with family owned establishments.

dont be afraid to ask questions. All upperclassmen have been in the same situation you are now, and most had the same questions. No one is going to judge you for not knowing everything about college right away, that would be weird if you didnt have any questions. So ask questions.
I like the atmoshpere, people bash the school who attend here but it's all in fun. It's a good school to attend and the programs are fairly tailored to your individual fields.
My classmates are a diverse group of students; each is their own person with their own goals and ideas in mind.
My college has mostly small sized classes, low end tuition, and a broad range of majors. There is also much diversity in the people.
How much I would enjoy going back to school. I believe I would have gone back sooner had I known how compassionate and encouraging the professors where here. They have really inspired me to challenge myself and to accept the talents that I already have.
I attend a off campus site, sometimes you can't get all the classes that you need.
The most frustrating thing about my school is dining services. most students go home on the weekends, but i stay here. it is very hard to eat when i want to on the weekends, things are not open all the time. I have to plan my day according to when the dining halls are open, somethimes my job doesnt allow me to eat on campus when thigs are open because they are only open for a few hours a day.
The best thing about the school is the small class sizes. Every class is capped at a maximum 25 students. Often there are far fewer than that number, and sometimes more if the professor allows it. It really does promote much more interaction with the professors in class and has a more personal feel.
People who are wanting to attend a large school should not attend this school.
I mostly brag about the professors I have had. I have always had good professors or, if they are difficult, I have leanred to become more focused and, in turn, a well rounded person. I enjoy the campus and I feel it is a great place to go.
SEMO is best known for their education/teaching degree.
I think Southeast Missouri University is a great University for any kind of person. There are organizations and classes for outgoing people, extroverts, social butterflies, humble hermits, smartie pants, and creative critters. There are so many opportunities for anyone and everyone to get involved and enjoy their experience here.
