Overview

Culver-Stockton College

The goal of Culver-Stockton College is to create well-rounded students of life prepared for ever-changing job markets and an unpredictable future.

To do so, the College focuses on helping students develop their whole selves through an active and experiential education, both in and out of the classroom. Students learn differently than they used to, and at C-SC, it's all about the students. This philosophy applies to every area of campus, including the College's approach to the semester format.

Culver-Stockton College maintains a 13:1 student to faculty ratio, ensuring students have personalized attention while on campus. The close relationships students have with the faculty mentors are a point of pride at C-SC, and a specific benefit identified by the College's alumni. With Culver-Stockton's well-connected and supportive alumni-base, students have a step up on the competition after graduation. In fact, 97% of Culver-Stockton graduates are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation.

Plus, Culver-Stockton offers the 4-Year Graduation Guarantee, assuring students can to participate in life-changing travel studies, interesting extracurricular activities, and meaningful service projects, while knowing they can graduate in four years.

12/3 Semester Calendar

At Culver-Stockton, the typical 15-week semester is split into two terms: a 12-week term and a 3-week term. During the 12-week term, students take three or four courses, rather than the traditional five or six, because concentrating on fewer courses at once allows for more active learning experiences.

Then during the 3-week, students focus on a single experiential course. Taking a single course frees students to travel without worrying about other classes, complete full-time internships and become truly engaged in the curriculum.

Culver-Stockton is one of only two colleges in the nation with a 12/3 semester!

Research and Simulations

Research and simulations are a major component of C-SC's active and experiential education. Students engage in cutting edge research as early as their freshman year and simulations allow students to have memorable learning experiences in a controlled and safe environment.

Scientific Ingenuity

Research opportunities give students valuable skills for their careers and for graduate studies. Students conduct groundbreaking genomics research and have the freedom to design their own research projects. Small class sizes and close relationships with professors provide students with the assistance they need to develop their passions.

Accessible Resources

C-SC partners with Washington University and the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, allowing students to earn advanced health science degrees in less time. The College also partners with Blessing-Rieman College of Nursing, which hosts one of the most advanced nursing simulation labs in the country.

Creative Expression

C-SC emphasizes creative expression as a way for students to showcase their distinct skill sets. Fine Arts are central to the thriving campus atmosphere. Students in all majors participate in C-SC's bands, choirs, theatre performances, and visual art exhibitions.

From a state-of-the-art recording studio to versatile performance venues and a stunning art gallery, photography studio and design lab and more, there is space for all students to get creative and explore their interests.

C-SC has several longstanding traditions that enhance creativity on campus. Examples include the Guest Artist Production, where professional actors perform alongside students, and the Annual Music Tour, where the College's choirs and ensembles perform at amazing venues around the country. Along with all the unique Fine Art Travel Study courses, C-SC's opportunities for creative expression are unique and exciting.

Travel Study

With the 12/3 calendar, students have many options to study while traveling with their professors and entire class to locations around the country and world. The travel study courses include extensive preparation on campus and thoughtful debriefing upon return to create a meaningful and life changing experiences.

At Culver-Stockton, travel courses are offered in nearly every discipline, and often several disciplines pair up to offer multidisciplinary destinations. Recent Travel Study courses include a music and government course in Cuba, a history and athletic training course in Ireland, an education course in Finland, a business course in Costa Rica, and a Fine Arts course in Paris.

C-SC offers every student scholarships and experiential vouchers every semester to help cover the costs of travel courses!

Leadership and Professional Experience

Culver-Stockton students learn the skills to become influential leaders in their professional and personal lives. These opportunities extend well past the classroom; with more than 50 student groups, five national fraternities, three national sororities and 18 varsity athletic teams, any student can find their niche on "the Hill" while gaining the experience and confidence that is necessary in effective leadership. Students also begin to build their resumes early on by joining national honor societies, participating in the Student Government Association, and gaining on the job experiences through campus work-studies and internships.

Culver-Stockton College works with more than 700 corporate sponsors to provide internships opportunities. Students can choose from exploratory internships, where they get to test out different career fields, or professional internships, where they work on a job in their field. The 12/3 semester calendar allows students to complete 3-week, full-time internships, many with the College's well-connected and caring alumni.

Dedicated and knowledgeable faculty advisors help guide every student on campus to maximize each and every student's potential.

Service Learning

Part of the complete educational experience at Culver-Stockton is learning the importance of service work. Not only do service projects benefit those in need, they also help students earn practical leadership experience, become involved in their communities and gain perspective of the world.

Students become involved in service learning during their first days on campus. Annual service opportunities include the Spring Break Mission Trip, the Up 'til Dawn Letter writing party, Extreme Dome Makeover, and Food for Thought. Students are also encouraged to start projects that are close to their hearts.

Service Learning at C-SC starts the first week of school with the annual Extreme Dome Makeover. Over 400 volunteers complete service projects at homes, businesses, and public spaces throughout the town of Canton.

Attending Culver-Stockton College means becoming a lifelong learner who is prepared for anything.
