Students at Culver-Stockton College learn the importance of improving the world around them through service learning. Service learning at C-SC starts the first week of school with the annual Extreme Dome Makeover and continues on through many other significant projects. Students leave an impact on Canton through their service learning and enter the world beyond the College as adults, ready to get involved in their communities. When students of Culver-Stockton College leave “the Hill,” they continue to make a difference wherever their futures lead them. At larger institutions, it may be more difficult to gauge results from a service project. Within C-SCs system of Service Learning however, every individual’s contribution counts, and makes for a more meaningful experience.
Madison Lawless ’21 is a nursing major from Silex, Missouri, who is heavily involved on campus. During her countless hours in the nursing program, she formed personal relationships with her professors who were easily accessible and willing to help her with whatever she needed. Through the opportunities provided to her through Culver-Stockton College’s First Year Experience (FYE) course, Lawless, a member of the Chi Omega Sorority, was able to use her time and talents to help others. Lawless was inspired to take part in assisting the Lewis County Food Pantry, volunteer at the Lewis Street Playhouse and participate in other service projects around Canton. Lawless has strong ties with the Rotary club, as her mother is a long-time member and volunteer. “The service learning I have done at Culver-Stockton helped broaden my horizons to try new things and really be involved in a community,” Lawless explained. “Service is something I will enjoy doing my whole life.”
