Here at Southeast Missouri State University, we know academic success comes from your mental and physical well-being.
To support you as you pursue your degree, your dreams, and more, we’ve implemented a network of support services designed specifically to aid you during your time at SEMO. Learn more about the services you should take advantage of in 2020.
Counseling and Disability Services
College can be stressful, but you don’t have to face it alone. In fact, we don’t want you to. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or otherwise, schedule an appointment with Counseling Services. With a staff comprised of licensed counselors and social workers, someone will be able to work with you during personal or social needs, as well as respond to crisis intervention when needed. Appointments are at no additional cost to students. Counseling Services also offers mental illness screenings, educational resources for students and families, and external referrals when needed.
SEMO is committed to eliminating barriers on campus for students with disabilities by providing equal access and opportunities for success. Oftentimes, however, accommodations are needed in the classroom. That’s where Disability Services steps in to provide you with the tools needed to excel in your classes. All you need to do is register with their office, and they’ll guide you from there.
University Tutorial Services
For academic assistance, seek out University Tutorial Services on campus. Make an appointment that fits the needs of your schedule, and work to make sure you don’t fall behind in your classes. Don’t wait until you’re falling behind to get tutoring! Start early and stay ahead of your material. The closer you are to mastering it, the better you’ll perform in this class and in your upper-level courses.
Center for Writing Excellence
If writing a paper isn’t your strong suit, stop by the Center for Writing Excellence, where writing tutors will work with you to understand the ways you can improve your writing and become a stronger writer in the future. You can submit your paper through Moodle as well, and you’ll be able to receive the feedback needed to compose a strong paper.
Mathematics Learning Center
There’s even a Mathematics Learning Center on campus for those who need assistance in their math classes. You don’t have to be a math major to take advantage of this service. Faculty, graduate assistants, and other students are there to help you and no appointments are necessary.
Redhawk Food Pantry
Created to supplement existing access to food, hygiene products, and school supplies, the Redhawk Food Pantry is here to ensure you’re well-fed and taken care of. There are plenty of things on your mind as a college student, but food insecurity shouldn’t be included in that list. Accessing the pantry is completely anonymous.
We want to see you achieve great things in life, even after your time at SEMO has come to an end. To assist you in your professional endeavors, Career Services provides many tools for you to utilize. Throughout the year, take advantage of career workshops, the Career Expo, mock interviews, resume help, and more. You can also seek guidance on how to land internships, jobs, or prepare for graduate school.
Don’t forget to utilize one of their premier resources, RedhawkJobs, a platform of job and internship listings exclusively for SEMO students and alumni.
LGBTQ+ Resource Center
The LGBTQ+ Resource Center is designed to be a safe, comfortable, and confidential environment for LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and allies to discuss different topics. The Center implements programs and additional resources on campus to raise awareness and promote inclusivity.
Military and Veterans Services
Consisting of a military-affiliated staff, the center for Military and Veterans Services is dedicated to providing resources, information, and other forms of support to veterans, military personnel, and their dependents during their time at Southeast. This includes everything from financing your education to understanding how the G.I. Bill works, and more.
Don’t forget all students have access to the Student Recreation Center (SRC) on campus with their Redhawk ID. Here, you can use the weight room, a variety of cardio machines, take group fitness classes, join in on intramural sports clubs, swim laps, or just play a pick-up basketball game with your friends. Taking care of your physical health helps to care for your mental wellness and the programs at the SRC are endless.
