Eclipse Activities at the River Campus

Aug 9, 2017
Southeast Missouri State University

A shadow moves across the landscape. Birds stop singing. Crickets start chirping. The temperature falls. That’s what scientists and astronomers tell us we have to look forward to experiencing in a few weeks during the Great American Eclipse.

On August 21, Cape Girardeau will see a total solar eclipse, experiencing one minute and forty-one seconds of the moon moving in front of the sun blocking its light. You can experience this fascinating event at the River Campus with some eclipsed-themed entertainment all for free! 

Don't Miss "Broadway's Next Hit Musical"

Aug 1, 2017
Southeast Missouri State University

Imagine buying tickets to a show that hasn’t even had its script written yet … that’s just what’s happening with the upcoming performance of "Broadway’s Next Hit Musical."

This touring production will take the Bedell stage on August 26. The comedy takes place during an awards show where master improvisers gather made up hit song suggestions from the audience and then create a spontaneous evening of music, humor, and laughter. Assistant Director of the River Campus Bob Cerchio says while it may be a new show to the River Campus, it’s an old concept.

Professor of Double Reeds to Showcase New Technique

Southeast Missouri State University

At the River Campus, our faculty don’t just teach. You can find them on stage and in studio performing themselves and in some cases alongside students.

This fall marks Jacqueline Wilson’s third year at Southeast, an environment she says is unlike any other. Wilson is professor of double reeds and says she enjoys the mentorship opportunity she has with her students. In addition to teaching, Wilson can also be found on stage at the River Campus as a performer. She also believes in continuing to learn and has spent her summer learning a new technique she’ll debut this year. 

"An American Hero" is coming to the River Campus

Last week, I told you about students collaborating with a professor on a sculpture. This week, we head to the stage. Two and half years ago, Southeast student Cody Cole had an idea. As we’ll hear from chair of Southeast’s Conservatory of Theatre and Dance, Kenn Stilson, the rest is making history.

If college is about learning … college at Southeast Missouri State University is learning by doing.

Southeast students in the Department of Art are working on a unique project that’s giving them knowledge about public sculptures, design and installation. The project will also be bringing a little beauty into their own environment on full display in the roundabout near the River Campus at Fountain and Morgan Oak Streets. It’s a project Professor Chris Wubbena says has long been in the works at least in theory.
