President Valentine named Lambda Chi Alpha Alumni of the Year
President Richard Valentine was honored recently at the Lambda Chi Alpha senior banquet as the Alumni of the Year. President Valentine was named president of Culver-Stockton on July 1, 2009 and is the first alumnus to be named president at C-SC. Along with the honor of the award, Valentine received an engraved pen holder set, as well as his name engraved on a plaque that will hang on the wall of the Lambda Chi house. Prior to the senior banquet the men of Lambda Chi were able to raise over $270 dollars for the Canton Christian Church food pantry by walking around Canton and singing for donations during their annual "Shirt Tail Parade."
Culver-Stockton College to present Annual "Pops" Concert
The Culver-Stockton College Fine Arts Division will present their annual "Pops" Concert on Friday, May 7, at 7 p.m. in the Alexander Campbell Auditorium. The concert will open with the C-SC Chamber Choir. Among their selections is a "unique" work entitled Jabberwocky-taken from the story Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. "Composed in the style of a Heroic Epic, Jabberwocky contains several interesting sound effects and is comprised mainly of non-sense syllables," said Dr. Kevin Baker, associate professor of music and director of choral activities. The Collegiate Choir will complete the first half of the concert by performing a 15-minute collection of songs from Les Miserables including "I Dreamed a Dream" and "Do you Hear the People Sing." Following a brief intermission, the Symphonic Band, under the direction of assistant professor of music and director of bands Trent A. Hollinger, will present Four Symphonic Dances from West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein. Dr. Thomas Polett, associate professor of music and chairperson of the Fine Arts Division, will lead the Jazz Ensemble in Big Mama Cass by Don Sebesky, Feels So Good by Chuck Mangione, Engine No. 9 by Les Hooper, and Hey Pachuco arranged by Shane Porter. Additionally, the Jazz Ensemble will be featuring graduating seniors Ben Abts on baritone saxophone, Tony Webb on alto saxophone, and Jamie "Sarge" Schloz on drums. This event is free and open to the public. For more information about this event, contact the C-SC Fine Arts Division at firstname.lastname@example.org or 573-288-6413.
"Social Problems" course takes a stand against violence
The sociology course "Social Problems" is focusing on family and violence as a part of this 3-week course. The class will enact a "cafeteria theatre" event this Friday, May 7 in the cafeteria at 12:15 p.m., the event should last approximately 3-5 minutes. This event is happening as a result of an on-campus survey determining the student body's awareness of and experience with different forms of domestic abuse. The project is intended to raise the awareness of the students to the presence of abuse in their own social network, among those they know well, and to present some general guidelines for defining abuse, planning for one's own and someone else's safety, and helping someone who is a victim. The event will include table toppers, including definitions and examples of abuse, safety planning guidelines, and advice on how to help someone who is in an abusive relationship. A collection station to request "change for change" will be right outside the dining area; the money will go to promote work in support and prevention activities aimed at student safety and survival. Stop by the cafeteria to help educate yourself and others about domestic violence.

If you are graduating, you are expected to check out before 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 15th. All other students, unless they are assisting with graduation or have been approved by Heather Keller to remain in residence, are expected to check out before 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 11th. Requests to remain in residence halls after your designated check out date/time will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the Director of Residential Life. All requests must be received no later than Friday, May 7th at 5 p.m. in order to be considered.
Students may choose from two ways to check out of their residential space:
· Express Check-Out: Students pick up an Express Check-Out envelope from the Student Life Office (Johnson 122). When the student has removed all of their personal items from their space and is ready to depart from campus, they complete the required information on the front of the envelope, deposit their bedroom and mail keys, and return the envelope to the Student Life Office. Improper check-out charges will be assessed for students who do not check out properly. Students who choose this option will automatically be charged for damages and extraneous cleaning needs, but may still appeal charges within 30 days after charges have been applied to the student's account.
· Traditional Check-Out: The student will schedule an appointment with their CA or Houseparent to do a walk-through of their space. Traditional check-outs will be available only from 1 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 11th and from 1 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 15th. Students departing at any other time should choose the Express Check-Out option. If the student is not on time or does not show for their traditional check-out appointment, they will be expected to check out using the Express option and may be assessed an improper check-out fee.
The staff in your hall will be able to answer your questions about check-out, but contact Heather Keller at email@example.com if you have specific questions or concerns about extensions or delayed departures.
