Engage in 8

Welcome to Southeast

The University community enthusiastically welcomes you to Southeast Missouri State University! To assist in your transition to campus, the “Engage in 8!” program is designed to engage you in a wide array of opportunities. Whether it’s attending a theatre production, playing intramurals, going to worship, or joining a student organization, take time to explore the variety of programs and events created with you in mind. “Engage in 8!” events have appeal for all students from first year to graduate, domestic and international, traditional and non-traditional. We want you to feel comfortable attending any event as you get to know and become a part of the Southeast community.

The schedule is updated on a regular basis. Check back often for updates.

Responsible Redhawks

Southeast is committed to promoting a community of Responsible Redhawks – a community that encourages a holistic, healthy environment. Programs that support this initiative are denoted throughout the publication. As with all events, we encourage you to try new experiences, meet new people, and become involved in your University. We look forward to seeing you on campus and participating in the opportunities it has to offer!

To help Protect the Nest and prevent the spread of COVID-19 to our campus and the surrounding community, all event participants are asked to bring and wear a face covering to all events and meetings, as well as observe and adhere to venue capacity limits with physical distancing in mind. Sponsoring groups are also expected to provide a safe environment for participants  - make hand sanitizer available, role-model proper mask-wearing throughout the event, utilize an appropriately-sized venue, and provide a possible virtual alternative.
