Students Inject Over $60 Million Into Southeast Missouri

Students at Southeast Missouri State University are spending more than $63.6 million annually at local businesses, according to a new study released Friday by the university.

Adding the money spent by family members when they visit Cape Girardeau brings the total to almost $64.7 million being pumped into Cape Girardeau’s economy.

Researchers, including professors and students at Southeast, looked at spending in 48 categories from rent to tattoos during the fall of 2011. Read more on Southeast Missourian.
