The city is boring, the school provides nothing, none of the faculty see you as anything other than a big money printer. They will charge you for everything and when they screw up and overcharge you, you have to fight tooth and nail to get them to give you your money back. They flat out lie to you so deadlines pass and you have to pay them more money, they provide ZERO guidance. They trap you here by demanding courses that only they teach, therefore you cannot transfer hardly anything anywhere else when you do get fed up and want to escape this hell. DO NOT GO HERE. For the love of god go literally anywhere else but here, this has been a 4 year nightmare for me and SEMO has just sucked all of the life (and money) out of me.

On all outward appearances, it is an 'affordable' option to get a college degree. However, built in is a system of cruel bureaucracy, a perilous maze of fees and unnecessary required courses you must endure before you can get your sweet prize. Within my department - mass comm - there are some really ridiculously stupid pre reqs to be 'accepted' into it. You come out of highschool equipped already with this knowledge and capability, but before you can learn anything usable in your field, you're going to have to prove it all over again, paying at least 700 dollars to do so. And if you're transferring, just forget it. They don't want your dumb credits from another school. I transferred after a semester at one school and have now spent a semester at SEMO. During my one semester at the other school, I learned soooo much, and it was all very useful. All of that information and experience at that other school - Stephen's College (very worth it) - helped me get my internship this summer. I have learned nothing from SEMO and they were completely unwilling to work with me regarding the knowledge I already have through the classes I've already taken. SEMO has done nothing but intentionally held me back. They would not let me count my internship for credit. They made me completely start over in my degree. When I asked for help I got no reply. When I pleaded for someone to make my process go smoother seeing as I'm already qualified, I was met with rude inflexibility. I'm only here because my parents are willing to help me pay for it and apparently I'm not allowed to drop out. I would rather drop out however. This school is worthless. This is a school that will do anything for profit and offers no customer service or guarantee to compensate for their greed.

A few of the professors are disinterested or cannot speak English. The biggest negative is the Financial Services...should be called Financial DISservice. They seem to go out of their way to screw up you life and make it as unpleasant as possible. You ask the "experts" if you are doing it right or what you need to do for certain types of loans and you may get the right or wrong info you never know until they notify you that it was done wrong or you forgot something when in reality they advised you wrong or screwed you over. Of course they failed to tell you something or told you wrong but they never admit it. I am an older student and had never dealt with all this government money stuff but every year they managed to screw me up...three years running now but of course it's my fault not their wrong advise that is the problem. My advisor is GREAT but she admits she doesn't know the financial part so your stuck rolling the dice with Financial Disservice Department.

Most are from within 50 miles of campus or the STL area. Several good programs and if you put the time into it, you will learn. Meet some people and join an organization that interests you. The community is smallish (about 50K people). Tuition is low. Some folks do great in this environment, others don't.
