we have adequate scrubbers for coal, the problem is the anthropogenic global warming nuts insist we remove life giving, plant fertilizer CO2 from the emissions. And the US is like the Saudi Arabia of coal, and little known fact ... Illinois is very coal rich. Meredosia was going to do some new experimental CO2 sequester thing, which is insane. We need MORE Carbon Dioxide. But of course they…

That's ok. Medicaid will pay for patches, wellbutrin, Chantix, whatever the patient wants. Better yet, Medicaid will pay over and over and over again for the same recipient. Best of all, some of these Medicaid recipients will pick up the patches, free of course, then go to Customer Service and want a refund saying "I got the wrong strength. I don't have my receipt." How long do tax payers…

How many of these same criminals carried a FOID card or a CC card or had the gun registered…

Total enrollment up 14% from 2013

With over 70 percent of colleges and universities across the nation reporting declining enrollment, Culver-Stockton’s incoming fall 2014 class is defying the odds. Not only did C-SC see an increase in enrollment, this year’s class was the largest incoming class since 1991.The College welcomed 380 new students for this class, with 259 freshmen. Total enrollment is estimated at 972, which marks a 14 percent increase from last year.

C-SC has seen increases in class sizes for the last several years, and overall retention is up seven percent. One of the most dramatic increases seen on campus is the rise in the number of students choosing to live on campus. Currently, 89 percent of incoming students will live on campus. To accommodate the increase in students living on campus, the College worked all summer constructing new living spaces out of underutilized locations on campus.

“We could not be more pleased about our record-setting enrollment this year,” said Dr. Kelly Thompson, president of C-SC. “Our growing student body also means growth in diversity and providing a broad spectrum of experiences is a valuable asset to our students.”

Another significant increase was seen in international student enrollment. Over 9 percent of this year’s class came from outside of the country, with the College welcoming 35 international students. Ten different countries are represented, including Australia, Korea, Argentina and Saudi Arabia. This was the largest-ever international cohort welcomed at the College.

“The fact that students from all over the world have chosen to attend Culver-Stockton speaks volumes,” said Misty McBee, director of admission. “Our international students enrich the overall student experience by adding different perspectives to the conversation. And our small student body and tight-knit community really help our international students adjust to the transition of living in a different country.”

The remaining 91 percent of the class hails from 26 other states, with half of the students coming from Missouri. Other highly represented states include Illinios (25 percent of the class), California and Michigan. The single most represented high school in this class was Quincy Senior High School, with 13 students enrolling from there. In addition, 26 students are legacies, having either a parent, sibling or grandparent who had attended C-SC.
