    Student services has some free stuff going on sometimes . The arts department has some good things to see. I think there is a shuttle to St. Louis. I drive up there to shop the outlet malls.

    If you want a Bachelor's for next to nothing, you should experience the 'success' of SEMO. If you are interested in private voice, they have an exceptional faculty -- If you are interested in vocal music education, please look elsewhere. Trust me.

    The cost of SEMO is cheaper than most, but it is not the cheapest by far. You must also make sure to stay on top of the financial aid people and ALWAYS ask for a receipt.

    Southeast is one of the more cheaper universities in Missouri. For 13,000-15,000, you get awesome teachers, comfortable dorm, lots of food, sports teams, tons of extra curricular activities to choose from, a best of all, a solid education. Southeast is the place to go!
