Southeast Missouri State University is a campus dedicated to wellness. The goal of the My Student Body (MSB) Essentials Course is to increase knowledge, decrease harmful behaviors, and provide information to help you and all our students make positive and responsible choices.

Completion of the MSB Essentials course may take up to three hours. It is possible to break this time up and complete the course in segments if you wish. 

All responses are completely confidential and will not be viewed by university personnel. The university will be notified of your course status (i.e. not started, in progress, completed) and the status date. 

Important Information about Your Health and Safety 

Alcohol and Drug Use is Strictly Prohibited 

  • Southeast is a dry campus – no alcohol is allowed in any campus buildings, including the residence halls. 
  • Possession or use of any illegal drug or use of prescription drugs without a valid prescription is illegal. 
  • Students found in violation of these policies will be fined and required to complete substance abuse prevention and education counseling. 

Avoid High-Risk Drinking Behavior 

Despite what you may think, national data shows that most college students choose to drink moderately or not at all. 

Report Incidents of Sexual Assault or Harassment 

The University encourages the reporting of all incidents of sexual assault or harassment. Deciding whether to report an incident is a personal and often difficult decision. Reporting sexual assault is often the beginning of a process by which victims regain control over their lives. Your report may also help in preventing future incidents. The following options are available to you: 

  • Report the Incident to Campus Police. Call (573) 651-2911 (24-hour reporting line) 
  • Report the Incident to Equity Initiatives: Call (573) 651-2524 


There may be times when you need to stop being an observer and act/react in some way. You have the power to protect your peers and to assist them when they are in need. Intervene when you can do so safely and notify a university official immediately.
