Improving the World

Students at Culver-Stockton learn the importance of improving the world through service learning, which starts during the first week of school with the annual Everyone Doing More project and continues throughout the year. Students leave Canton and are ready to get involved in their communities as adults. It may be more difficult to gauge results from a service project at larger institutions, but within C-SC’s system of service learning, every individual’s contribution counts, and makes for a more meaningful experience.

Madison Lawless ’21

Madison Lawless ’21, a nursing major from Silex, Mo., is heavily involved on campus. Through opportunities provided by Culver-Stockton’s First Year Experience course, Lawless assisted at the Lewis County Food Pantry, volunteered at the Lewis Street Playhouse and participated in other service projects around Canton. She is a member of the Chi Omega sorority and has ties with the Rotary Club, where her mother is a long-time member. “The service learning I have done at Culver-Stockton helped broaden my horizons to try new things and really be involved in a community,” Lawless said.
