CANTON, MO — Friday was the day students moved in to dorms at Culver-Stockton College.
Executive Director of Admissions Misty Cate says the university is welcoming many new international students.
She says a new program has been helpful in recruiting students.
“This upcoming year is our first year of our inaugural collegiate E-Sports program. We have over 15 students in that program as well as our returning students from our club team, so we are very excited about that,” said Cate. “That has helped draw new students that might not have considered Culver-Stockton College if we didn't have that program."
Jordan McKay is an incoming freshman to the private college.
She says she picked Culver-Stockton because it resembles her hometown in Knox County,
"I like that the classes are small because that's what I am used to coming from Knox county were a small school over there,” said McKay. “I know a lot of people over here and it is close to home."
McKay says she also chose C-SC because of its nursing program and the relationship the school has built with Blessing Reimann College of Nursing.
