Name: Emily Johnston
Major: Accounting and Finance
Hometown / High School: Potosi, MO / Potosi High School
Why you chose C-SC:
I decided to come to Culver-Stockton College because I felt that after my visit I would have a great education, a network of friends, faculty, and staff. Here at CS-C I believe that the professors care and want you to do well and in a small college like CS-C you get a very individualistic learning experience. Culver Stockton opens up so many opportunities in the Accounting and Finance field and I believe that I can't get that experience anywhere else.
What you like best about C-SC:
I like that here at Culver Stockton you have to ability to explore different perspectives and you are not restrained to one plan. You can be involved in a variety of organizations and still succeed.
What attracted you to your major?
I have always wanted to be an Accounting major. I am just good at that but adding the Finance was just an incentive because a lot of the financial courses are also required to finish your accounting major.
What are your career goals?
Eventually I would like to become a accountant for a corporation and be known for what I do and how well I do it.
What are you involved in on campus including business organizations?
I am involved in the Institute of Management Accountants and Tri Sigma sorority.
Have you participated in a community service project(s)? Which one(s)?
I have participated in the Girls Night Out program, cleaning up Canton, Thanksgiving Food drive, Jillian Bentley Benefit, and the Robby Paige Memorial.
Have you participated in any Business Division travel? Which event(s)?
Yes, I have participated in the Business Division travel.

Any additional comments?
I believe that you will know when you visit and are around people at this college you will fit in. You can be involved in all types of activities and I recommend that you do because it allows you to get to know the individuals on campus.
