CampRedhawk is a summer leadership camp designed for new students preparing to enter their first semester at Southeast Missouri State University. It will offer an introduction to campus life and traditions, immerse you in school spirit, and introduce you to other new Redhawks. You will become more familiar with campus and the community where you will spend the next four years. Registration to open in Spring 2019.

*This session is encouraged for students who would like to attend the late June 2019 First STEP Orientation date. This session would be excellent for students coming from farther away who would like to have both experiences and only make one trip to Cape Girardeau this summer. Housing is available for these students, upon request.
