  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Free laundry. Free use of the bus on weekends (if you're unable to drive somewhere). Plenty of food to eat with the amount of money you're given.

    Like I said I am a Pre-med student and so the advising department is not helping very much, but fro any other majors SEMO is a great campus and very affordable.

    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.
