CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - Southeast Missouri State University is moving forward with a new building at its River Campus in Cape Girardeau.
Bids for site work will go out in February, with the $23.6 million building expected to open in fall 2014.
The new facility will combine academic space and housing in a three-story building near the Seminary Building on the River Campus' northeast corner. The first floor will include academic space for fine arts programs, along with residence hall dining. The two upper floors will house 188 students.
The River Campus also includes a cultural arts center and regional museum. The school says bonds will be issued to pay for the project.
