Why does not a college/university put a campus in Portageville, so that the surrounding towns in the Bootheel can have a chance to get a jump start on higher education, right out of high school, or as an older student - finally getting a chance to go to school while having a busy work schedule, etc. and the proximity to them would work for their benefit of obtaining the higher degree in education?

Hint: MU already has an Extension Center in Portageville.

And, the campus be aimed toward a complete degree plan for enrolled students, not just satellite classes. A lot of college/university classes have virtual degree plans that can be taken online in courses, so it would not be too hard to establish a campus in Portageville that would interact virtual classroom lectures with participation and exam taking. Only a small team would need be sent out to counsel, test or keep track of students in progress. Eh?

In the past 22 years, SEMO created campuses in Malden, Kennett and Sikeston in an effort to teach primarily freshmen and sophomore level classes. With one exception, you can't go to any of these campuses -- "Centers" is what the University sometimes calls them -- and earn an entire degree (the exception is a four-year agribusiness degree program specializing in row-crop production that Southeast introduced in May). You can just work on the course work towards a BA or BS that can then be applied to a degree finished at the main campus in Cape Girardeau.
