  Sarah McCammon, NPR’s lead reporter for Trump’s campaign for presidency, provided an analysis of the nation’s political climate during the 2016 presidential and midterm elections at KRCU’s “It’s All Politics” event on Nov. 13 in the Wehking Alumni Building.

McCammon stressed the role of journalism in society and the importance in objective and nonprofit journalism that is here to “serve the public, not to push an agenda.”

Overlooking the Mississippi River, neighboring the River Campus, is a piece of history unknown to many. The grand stature of the Glenn House whispers tales of prestige, wealth and opulence of the past, but inside, those whispers turn into groans, footsteps and shadowy figures.

Built in 1883, the Glenn House is a Victorian-style home constructed by Edwin Deane, an architect from Kentucky and father of Lula Deane. Deane built the house and gave it to Lula and her new husband David Glenn, as a wedding gift.

Sikeston native David Robinson spent 17 years and 9 months incarcerated for a crime he did not commit. Five months and one day after his release he spoke publicly for the first time, addressing family and supporters in Rose Theatre on Southeast’s campus following a preview screening of a documentary detailing his journey.

“I was supposed to die in prison,” Robinson told the audience, with tears in his eyes. “But we overcame that.”

To enhance professional development, Southeast faculty members are taking time out of their schedules to meet for book studies.

Groups of approximately 15 faculty members from multiple departments meet every Tuesday or Wednesday for five to six weeks to discuss ideas mentioned in books and how to apply those ideas at Southeast. Themes include anti-racism, balancing life and work and the importance of a well-rounded education.

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.
