Nationally syndicated talk show to feature Culver-Stockton College
Monday, September 13, 2010
CANTON, Mo. – Officials with Culver-Stockton College are excited to announce that the college will be featured in an upcoming episode of “Today in America” with Terry Bradshaw. The program will focus on the topics, trends and issues related to “The Value of a Liberal Arts Education in Today’s Challenging Times” as part of the show’s “American Education” series.
The segment will take an in-depth look at how liberal arts institutions, like Culver-Stockton, are preparing students for the careers and job fields of the future by exposing them to a wide-range of subject matter, experiences and opportunities. “At Culver-Stockton we teach students how to think, not what to think,” said C-SC President Richard Valentine. “That philosophy is the cornerstone of the liberal arts education, and we believe it is that approach to learning that gives our students the confidence, knowledge and ability they need to become the leaders of tomorrow,” he added.
“Today in America” will also profile Culver-Stockton’s unique 12/3 week academic calendar, called EXP@CSC, and the many opportunities it offers students. Through EXP@CSC, students pursue several courses in the 12-week portion of the semester. In the 3-week term, most students focus primarily on one course. This allows students to immerse themselves in a subject of extreme interest, conduct research, take part in an internship or study abroad for coursework.
“We are excited to welcome ‘Today in America,’” said Valentine. “Gaining the attention of a nationally syndicated television series further solidifies our belief that through EXP@CSC we are offering students the best possible education. This unique curriculum and the dedication of our faculty and staff truly set us apart from other institutions, and I am extremely proud that our small, liberal arts college is being recognized on a national level.”
Producers with “Today in America” will be recording on the campus of Culver-Stockton College Tuesday, Sept. 28. Several faculty, staff and students will be interviewed for the segment.
Founded in 1853, Culver-Stockton is a private, liberal arts college and one of only two schools in the nation to adopt this immersive method of higher learning.
