About Culver-Stockton College

Founded in 1853 by members of the Disciples of Christ church, Culver-Stockton College has more than 160 years of educational and historical experience - surviving the Civil War and Great Depression, promoting social equality and incorporating technological advances - always striving to reach new levels of excellence. We pride ourselves on the experiential advantages we provide our students like our the 12/3 semester calendar, implemented in the fall of 2008, which includes a 12-week semester of classes with a 3-week time frame for a single class, internship or Travel Study program. Culver-Stockton-s 140-acre campus overlooking the Mississippi River is home to 1100 students who choose from more than 60 majors and minors. Students can also create their own major, truly making their options limitless. On average, for every 15 students, C-SC has one faculty member, with 71 percent holding the highest degree in their field. Wildcat athletes have exceptional leadership, including a three-time volleyball Olympian and professional soccer player. Students are involved with community service, the student-run newspaper and radio station, mock trial, Greek life, fine art productions and more than 50 other student groups. Attending C-SC means you join a network of students, faculty and alumni who care about you because you are now a Wildcat.
