    Campus Safety

    Sometimes they're the party police for sure, but they patrol campus 24-7 to make sure everyone is safe and happy. There have been a couple instances of vandalism and theft, but the overall crime rate on campus is super low, which is really comforting. I like being able to know that I can walk from a fraternity house back to my dorm completely safely and calmly.

    Greek Life

    Not a part of it. The sororities on campus are all too clique-ish for my taste. You've got the plastic stuck up snobs in one, the sporty girls in another, and the artsy/lesbians in another. If you're not Greek, the majority of the girls won't talk to you. Fraternity guys are a little different, but very clique-ish as well. Entitled rich kids in one house, gay/theatre guys in another house, a hodge podge house, and the party party party let's all get wasted guys in another. With the fraternities there isn't a big sense of brotherhood in a couple of the houses. There's definitely a sense of sisterhood with the sororities though.

    Clubs and Activities

    I'm personally in psychology club and it feels like we really don't do a whole lot at all, and from what I've heard from friends and other students, all the clubs are pretty much like that.

    Great for these types of students

    If you're friendly and get along with people easily you'll definitely love it here. I'm a student from the suburbs of a big city, so the change to a small town was definitely a little bit of a culture shock, which other city kids couldn't hack, and they left. So if you're not one for the small town life or mindset, it might be a good idea to steer clear.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The pool in Henderson Hall is supposedly haunted by a girl who died on campus fifty years ago. I've never been, but people swear they've seen or heard her when they go there late at night. I think it's just because there aren't any lights in the pool room and it freaks people out and makes them hear things that aren't there. There are events called ACE (Academic Cultural Events) events. Yes, it sounds redundant, it's just what they're called. Students are required to attend 28 ACE events before they graduate. They help broaden horizons and expose students to cultures and things outside of their comfort zones.

    Bang for the buck

    I mean, I haven't really attended any other colleges, so I can't really say too much about it. My boyfriend is cynical about it, saying that it doesn't matter where you go; if you have a general major, anywhere will be just fine, especially a place that costs a little less. Culver is a private college, so it's on the pricey side, but they offer a decent amount of scholarships and grants to make up for a bit of it. I do love the 12 and 3 week terms. Instead of having all your classes during the traditional 15 weeks, you'll have most of your classes during the 12 week term and only one (maybe two) during the three week term. It's one of two schools in the country currently participating in the style. The only downer is that the 3 week classes don't really transfer to any other institutions.

    What to do for fun

    Go to Quincy for shopping, movies, most fast food places, and a little nicer caliber of restaurants. Going down to the river (Mississippi River) with friends is always a pretty fun time too. Of course the fraternity houses always throw good parties on weekends (Homecoming and call down are two of the biggest parties of the year and insanely crazy) and during the week as well.

    Food and Dining

    Specialty Mac and Cheese nights are the nights when the cafe is absolutely packed! Those and the kids bar nights are the most popular by far on campus. They'll change things up and have specialty meals like steaks, stuffed mushrooms, and sushi, too. The Cat's Pause (more commonly referred to as the CP) is a great place for hot off the grill foods.

    Dorm Life

    The walls are paper thin. So if your neighbors get in at two in the morning from the bar, you might just get woken up unless you sleep like the dead. The two person rooms are tiny and pretty claustrophobic if they're not arranged a certain way. The school does an alright job of pairing you with a decent roommate, but they do fail every once in a while and give you the roommate from hell.

    Academic Rigor

    I'm sure it's the same with most schools, but there are easy teachers and there are teachers who have classes that it's nearly impossible to get an 'A' in. As long as you apply yourself to the best of your ability and keep a good open communication with you professors, you should be just fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    It's a great school, but when you get bored, there's not a lot to do in town, so most students will go to Quincy, the nearest big city, to go shopping, eat out, etc. If you're not used to small town life, this school will definitely immerse you in it.

    In three sentences

    Small-town college. Very involved teachers. Unique 12 and 3 week term split as opposed to traditional 15 week term.

    Great for these types of students

    Culver-Stockton is a great college for all types of students. There is a music program for everyone to get involved in, even if you are not a major or minor. There are sports for all the students. If you are not playing a sport for a scholarship, then there are always Inter-mural sports that people can get involved with. Many of the students are involved in more than one of these activities. There are majors and minors for many fields. Many people at Culver are nursing majors, education majors, criminal justice majors, and many more.

    Tips for prospective students

    An important thing to remember while at Culver is that there is always something for everyone. There are dozens of different types of majors and minors to choose from and there are many different clubs and organizations that a student can get involved with. There is always something to do, you just have to get out there and do it.

    Bang for the buck

    I feel like I have gotten my money's worth while spending my time at Culver-Stockton. The quality of the education and experiences the school offers should be able to speak for themselves. The classes are small enough that the students are able to establish a personal relationship with their professors. This allows a chance for students to be able to understand the class's material better and helps set up an easy learning environment. So, I feel that anyone who goes to Culver can get their money's worth.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love being here! I find Culver to be safe and a home away from home, which to me, is an important feature in a college. I feel like I am learning so much and experiencing so many opportunities that are necessary for a good college experience. The rest of the students and faculty are easy to get along with and are all pleasant people that make up for a friendly environment.

    Am learning a lot

    I have learned a lot from being at Culver. Not only have I learned many life experiences, but I am also learning a lot on my decided major. I have learned many things both inside and outside the classroom walls.

    Dorm Life

    the dorm life at culver stockton (when i lived in the dorms) was an experience like no other. it was like living in a house with your best friends.
