Ways to Connect

At the conclusion of Missouri's Regular 2021 Legislative Session, the General Assembly approved several bills which directly affect Southeast Missouri State University.

HB 297, sponsored by Rep. Wayne Wallingford, from Cape Girardeau, modifies provisions in previous house bills related to higher education.

Alyssa Phares, with Visit Cape, spoke with KRCU Public Radio about two events which will be held in Downtown Cape, on Sat. May 1st. 

The first, and inaugural event is the Muddy River Marathon, which begins with the first group of runners at 7 a.m. on Mainstreet and runs throughout the city.

Updated 04/11/21: The Precautionary Boil Advisory affecting 14,000 customers has been lifted. The water was tested on Sat. Apr. 10, after a pipe was broken by a contractor, and found clean and safe. Customers may now drink and use water normally.  

Late Friday afternoon, a 12 inch water line was breached at William and Lorimier streets in Cape Girardeau.
