River Campus would ensure cultural diversity
To the editor:
My husband and I left Cape Girardeau last June for Philadelphia, but we like to keep up with the goings-on in Cape by reading the Southeast Missourian online. Imagine my surprise this morning when, cup of morning coffee in hand, I went to the semissourian.com Web site and was greeted with the headline, "Drury files third River Campus suit."
After reading the article, I felt compelled to write. My message is simple and straightforward: enough of this nonsense. I hope the city does counter-sue Jim Drury for damages.
My husband and I reside in the culturally diverse, arts-rich city of Philadelphia. Cape Girardeau and Southeast Missouri State University will only benefit from what the River Campus will bring: tourism, increased enrollment at Southeast and a new reputation for Cape as a fantastic destination for those seeking a satisfying cultural experience.
