CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - It's back to school time at Southeast Missouri State University.
Students started moving into their dorms on campus today in Cape Girardeau. The university set up an opening week of activities to welcome new students to campus.
"In terms of the residence halls, we're going to have right under 3,000 students," said Bruce Skinner, SEMO's director of residence life.  "Last year we had about 2,800.  So 200 more students living on campus."

Classes for the fall semester at SEMO start at 8 a.m. on Monday. Welcome back tents will be located throughout campus Aug. 23 and 24 to help students find their way around campus.
