Find Out Where You Can Learn

See what makes Southeast's River Campus unique

Southeast Missouri State University is committed to protecting the health and well-being of our campus community and are able to provide a quality academic experience as well as personal support for our students. The River Campus is home to the Earl and Margie Holland College of Arts and Media, a world-class entertainment venue for student and touring performances.  The River Campus is the only campus dedicated solely to art, dance, music and theatre in Missouri. Unlike many universities that house these disciplines in facilities across campus, Southeast provides a unique opportunity for artists of all talents to spend time and work together safely.  

The River Campus opened in 2007 and houses the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall, the Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Southeast Missouri Regional Museum, the Wendy Kurka Rust Flexible Theatre and the Robert F. and Gertrude L. Shuck Music Recital Hall as well as the historic Seminary Building.  In Fall 2014, in order to meet growing demand, the Kenneth & Jeanine Dobbins River Campus Center opened. 

Whether it’s perfecting that instrumental performance in one of the practice rooms, finishing a masterpiece in one of our art studios or rehearsing for the big performance,  we are here to guide you to your very next best.  River Campus is a vibrant community of gifted artists, musicians, actors, performers and dancers. Combine that with international touring groups, guest speakers and master classes and you will discover unlimited opportunities. Come and be a part of what we do next
