Honoring Those Who Served

Veterans Plaza Dedication

Southeast dedicated a new Veterans Plaza on campus near Academic Hall to celebrate the service of Southeast alumni, friends, family members and others.

The plaza consists of a central stone and plaque honoring past, present and future military members, and commemorative engraved bricks honoring individual military service. The U.S. flag, POW/MIA flag, the Missouri state flag and flags representing the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Space Force are displayed.

The Veterans Plaza project currently includes 217 bricks commemorating the military service of individuals. Bricks will be added each fall to continue this new Southeast tradition in honor of veterans.

To purchase a brick or donate to the Veterans Plaza project, visit semo.edu/veteransplaza.

The Veterans Plaza is a reminder to all students and alumni that this is a veteran friendly campus, one to be proud of.
