Culver-Stockton has a counseling and wellness service on campus that includes individual counseling, relationship counseling, roommate mediation, crisis intervention, education programming and referral to other agencies if necessary.
Founded by members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we continue that relationship and have a full-time chaplain on staff that will meet with students individually, sponsors several organizations, and offers service projects.
Students also work with other students through such programs as Health Outreach Peer Educators (HOPE).
Counseling and Wellness Services will be available as a resource for student organizations. Presentations may include class lectures, ACE events, residence halls and Greek houses, as well as other campus organizations.
If you would like to schedule a presentation, workshop and/or brown bag event, please call the Counseling Office at 288-6441.) and Alcohol Drug Abuse and Prevention Team. Drug and alcohol use is not permitted on campus, and there are other policies in place to help ensure the health and safety of students.
Culver-Stockton encourages students to have health insurance when they arrive on campus. Athletes are required to have health insurance. There are physicians in Canton, Quincy, and Hannibal. Hospitals are located in Quincy and Hannibal. For more information, contact Student Life at 573-288-6421.
We want to be sure that your student adjusts happily to life on campus. After being admitted, you'll be invited to come with your student to an orientation program to set up the first semester academic schedule, finalize financial aid, and find out more about campus life. Just before school starts, we'll invite your student to Wildcat Welcome Weekend.
In addition to learning more about the Culver-Stockton experience and academic expectations, we'll help you move your student into the residence halls and offer opportunities for him/her to build relationships with other first-year students as well as meet and mingle with upperclassmen. The weekend is capped off with the Matriculation Ceremony, when new students literally sign the book that makes them a Culver-Stockton student. Then they'll join students, faculty and staff at the President's home for the opening barbecue.
Throughout the year, your student can become involved in student life activities – on campus, in Canton, and in other area communities. And there are numerous organizations that offer opportunities for involvement and leaderships. If we don't have what your student wants, then he or she can probably start up an organization.
There can always be potholes. But we'll be there to help smooth those over, too. We have programs specifically designed to help promote student success, not just for first-year students, but all four years to help focus your student on personal growth and academic success. If your student needs some academic help, the Tutorial and Academic Support Center is available. And if your student gets off track, our P.A.S.S. Committee will help spot the trouble and work to help guide your student to success. If you have questions contact Holly Andress-Martin, Director of Advising, Retention, and First Year Experience .
Throughout your student's years at Culver-Stockton, we'll offer opportunities for resume-building practical experience. Career Services will work closely with your student to sharpen their cover letter, perfect their interviewing skills, and help them land their first job.
