Booth Space Still Available for Welcome Back Picnic


One of the great traditions of Southeast Missouri State University is the annual Welcome Back Picnic. Plans are well underway to launch another successful event on Sunday, Aug. 18, from 4-6 p.m. in the Show Me Center. New Student Programs is extending an invitation to University departments to welcome new and returning students to the Cape Girardeau and Southeast Missouri State University communities. The picnic is attended by approximately 3,300 Southeast students.

If promotion to University students would benefit your department, or if you would just like to let them know you’re glad they are back, consider signing up today. As a University department, there is no cost to sign up for a booth. To request a booth, click here. The deadline for booth registration is Friday, Aug. 9, but space is limited.

PLEASE NOTE: If a student organization within your area would like to participate, the organization should sign up through the same form. Space is extremely limited for student organizations. They should also register for the Student Involvement Fair on Saturday, Aug. 10, through Campus Life and Event Services. Questions regarding that event can be sent to

If your department or organization has additional questions, contact New Student Programs at (573) 651-5166 or
