Southeast Campuses on Delayed Start Nov. 15

Due to inclement winter weather conditions, Southeast Missouri State University’s main campus, River Campus and regional campuses in Sikeston and Kennett are operating on a delayed start today, Nov. 15, and classes will begin and the campuses will open at 9:30 a.m. For more information, visit


/// From the Dean

I'm proud to say Southeast held that value long before the internet made it a reality.
