Southeast Missouri State University plans to spend about $30,000 to rent a temporary air conditioner for students in an aging dormitory.

The trailer-mounted equipment will be in place for the first month of the semester, blowing cool air into the Dearmont hall through flexible ducts.

About 1,200 freshmen are expected to move into campus housing today (Thursday). Dearmont is the only dorm without air conditioning.

Temperatures in Cape Girardeau are expected to reach around 100 degrees yet again. The temporary air conditioner is expected to be up and running by Friday.
