    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.

    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.
