Student Handbook

The International Student Handbook includes information for current students including important dates, courses, student resources, and more.

Conversation Partners

The Conversation Partners Program offers current students and the local community an opportunity to learn about a different culture while helping an international student to learn about the local culture and practice their conversational skills.

  • Conversation Partners are English-speaking volunteers, often University students, who meet with one or more IEP students 2-4 hours each week for informal conversation.
  • Meetings may be conducted one-on-one or in a group. The partners or group may choose to meet fewer or a greater number of hours each week, depending on their particular schedules and interests.
  • Conversations are informal, and there is no predetermined “curriculum.” However, the Office of Intensive English Programs provides partners with a handbook of tips and ideas, suggested conversation topics, pronunciation practice sheets, and other resources that they often find useful.

Upon request, the Intensive English Program at Southeast will recruit and assign conversation partners to program students who can benefit from structured conversational practice.

For further details on this program, you may contact the Intensive English Programs at (573) 986-6894 or

Coffee Hour

During Coffee Hour, we invite students from every IEP level to talk, play games, and have fun. You can stop by for a few minutes or the whole hour.

Coffee Hour is a great way to:

  • Make new friends
  • Learn about different cultures
  • Improve your English skills
  • Enjoy free coffee and snacks!

We have Coffee Hour every Tuesday (except the first weeks of classes and finals weeks) from 3-4 p.m. in International Village Multipurpose Room (the Great Hall).
