Culver-Stockton College Ranked #5
2014 Best Value Schools in Midwest-U.S. News & World Report
U.S. News and World Report has awarded Culver-Stockton College a fifth place rank on the 2014 Best Value Schools list, in the Midwest Regional Colleges category. This ranking is based on the College's overall rank by USNWR, as well as the 2012-2013 net cost of attendance for a student who receives the average level of need-based financial aid. USNWR ranked Culver-Stockton as the 34th Best Regional College in the Midwest in September 2013. Only 15 colleges in the Midwest were ranked in the Best Value report.


"The student experience is our number one focus at Culver-Stockton, and the cost of attendance is a major factor in this," said Richard Valentine, president of Culver-Stockton. "Many of the efforts of the administration, like our focus on raising money for the Annual Fund for Student Scholarships, are geared toward helping students cover the cost of education."

Alumni on Campus - C-SC LEADS
Scott Cisel '75

Scott Cisel '75 was on campus Jan. 31 as the keynote speaker for the inaugural C-SC LEADS Leadership Conference.  This conference is offered on campus to further the development of current and emerging student leaders. C-SC is placing an emphasis on the importance and values of leadership through this program.   


Scott, the senior advisor to Accenture, an energy company that employs approximately 270,000 people, shared experiences on leadership and engaged students by encouraging them to believe in themselves to realize their ability to accomplish their goals.  Further, he emphasized the importance of personal goal setting for future success.     

Recreation and Wellness Center Campaign in Final Stretch

Accept the Double-Challenge!
We need your help! The cost of a new recreation center at C-SC is $3.5 million. 
If the College can raise an additional $350,000 by April 9, 2014, the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation of Tulsa, Okla., will donate the remaining $700,000 to complete the project. Donate now!

GREAT NEWS: A Trustee has issued a new challenge, now matching the next $100,000 in gifts, to help meet the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation's project completion challenge. That means your gift will now be double-matched, first by the Mabee Foundation and then through the generosity of a Trustee. Accept the challenge!
