Southeast president Carlos Vargas emailed a campus-wide apology Sept. 21 in regard to accepting an offer to drink from a beer bong six days earlier at the Southern Illinois University-Carbondale tailgate, and his message has drawn attention well beyond the campus through social media.

 

In the statement Vargas said that a beer bong is a device that is normally associated with binge drinking and something he does not condone.

Due to budget reductions for higher education across the state, Southeast Missouri State University has announced the future closing of their Child Development Center in Sikeston. The center operates as a full-time child care program open to families of students, faculty, and staff of the Sikeston regional campus, as well as community members.

 

Southeast provost Karl Kunkel says after an analysis on their academic affairs, decisions were made in pursuit of reducing costs, and prioritizing the base of Southeast.
