Business, education and law attracts out of state students

Only twenty minutes from the Illinois border, Culver-Stockton College hosted their business, education and law days to preview those fields of study for possible incoming freshmen Tuesday.

The state of Illinois is among the states leading the nation in the number of college freshmen pursuing higher education in other states.

The state budget impasse has now accelerated the exodus of graduating high school seniors leaving the state.

What is bad for Illinois is proving to be a good thing for colleges and universities in neighboring states.

Only twenty minutes from the Illinois border, Culver-Stockton College hosted their business, education and law days to preview those fields of study for possible incoming freshmen Tuesday.

Over 225 students toured the campus of C-SC including students from three Illinois high schools.

Culver-Stockton says their programs offer something unique to the incoming freshmen in these fields.

"Our Educational focus, hands on learning and getting student the experience they need, so that when they graduate they can go out in the world and do what we train them to do," said Melody Schroer with Culver-Stockton.

Students from Ilini West, Camp Point Central and Unity High Schools were joined by students from Keokuk High School and six local Missouri high schools.
