C-SC enrollment at 20-year high

CANTON, Mo.¬–– For the third year in a row, Culver-Stockton College welcomed an incoming class of more than 300 students, bringing total enrollment to a 20-year high. C-SC welcomed 336 incoming students for the fall 2015, which includes freshmen, transfers and international students. The College is also experiencing high retention rates, which has led to an increase in the overall student population. As of Census Day count, enrollment at Culver-Stockton College is 1066 total students. The last time enrollment was at this level was in 1994. This is a nearly 9 percent of growth from last year, when enrollment reached 972 students.
“Our faculty, staff and administrators are so excited to welcome a two-decade-high number of students choosing to enroll at Culver-Stockton College. We work diligently year-round to continue to enhance the student experience and add to our beautiful campus,” said Dr. Kelly M. Thompson, president of Culver-Stockton College. “It is uplifting and encouraging when students from around the world take notice. And to see that students are not only opting to enroll but to stay the four years and graduate from Culver-Stockton gives us continued conviction in our mission.
The students in this incoming class come from a wide geographic range. Approximately 45 percent of this incoming class hails from Missouri. In addition, 28 other states are represented in this class, as well as 11 countries. The College welcomed just over 30 new international students to campus.
“Growth in diversity on ‘the Hill’ provides a broad spectrum of experiences from which our students can learn. It enhances the student experience in so many important ways,” said Dr. Thompson. “Not only do we make the world our classroom, we are bringing the world to campus.”
Nearly 94 percent of the incoming class has opted to live on campus. This is the second year in a row the College has reached residential capacity. The college once again renovated existing residential spaces to accommodate the increased number of students living on campus. The Offices of Student Life have moved from their previous location in Johnson Hall to a newly created space in the Gladys Crown Student Center.
