Southeast is a great place to learn. The instructors and all staff are very professional and courteous. The services, such as Learning Assistance Programs, including tutoring, College Success Seminar, Educational Access Programs, Management and Student success are so accomodating. All students are given every opportunity to take advantage of the programs available designed to foster a learning and earning a degree. I absolutely love it!
Review Southeast Missouri State University
I have had a pretty great experience so far on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University! I love the classes, professors, and my classmates! I've made a lot of new friends and hope to make more! My classes have been pretty easygoing with the perfect amount of challenge! The professors here will take their time to help you if you need it! The food on campus is also pretty good with many different options to choose from! If I could change anything on campus I would make less smoking areas or a non smoking campus! I would like to see more campus police out and about more instead of parked in front of the DPS building! Overall the campus and everything around it has been pretty awesome!
Southeast Missouri State University is a wonderful four-year university that offers small class sizes amongst a small but spacious campus, that is located right next to the Mississippi River. When I chose to return to college as a non-traditional student turning twenty three years old, I knew that Southeast was the college for me. It is not only an affordable higher education option but also caters to helping students achieve degrees through various programs intended to help students excel.
