Have you lost touch with your classmates? Ever wonder what happened to someone after they left campus? 
Now's your chance to find out if you live in the St. Louis area! We are organizing an alumni club in the St. Louis metropolitan area. One of our missions is to provide professional/social networking for the estimated 800 Culver-Stockton alumni in the area. Presently, we have a core group that is building this club from scratch, developing our mission, by-laws, and initial events.

To stay up-to-date on our progress, you can find us on LinkedIn and Facebook. 
We are seeking your input as we forge through unchartered waters to develop this group. We are also looking for more people to help get the club running.
