Culver-Stockton College staff to develop and implement opportunities for

students. Wilson will serve as director of residential life and

intramural athletics, and Hickenbottom will serve as director of Greek

life and student activities. Both men joined the college July 1.

"Our goal at Culver-Stockton is to create a living/learning community

through the students’ residential experience whether they are living

in one of our residence halls or in a fraternity or sorority," said

Paul Rittof, dean of Student Life. "Unlike many colleges and

universities, we are fortunate to have a majority of students living in

our residential facilities for all four years of their college

experience. This expands our opportunities to work closely with the

students, to help build their academic success, and to help develop them

as leaders through our student activities. We also have some students

who commute to campus for class, and we are working to increase

opportunities for them to become more involved in the college."

years in the Office of Residence Life at Luther College, Decorah, Iowa.

He also served as a vocation mentor and an assistant soccer coach at
