Mustang Days is Stevenson University's summer orientation program designed to help all new incoming (freshman and transfer) students make a smooth transition into college. Students will have the opportunity to connect with other new students, meet faculty within their major, register for Fall 2016 classes, and become familiar with important resources available on campus.
Students will attend one of the Mustang Day programs, which take place in June. The scheduled day for students is determined by their selected major. As we want to help our new students become acquainted with their "new home," the location of your Mustang Day will be determined by where your selected major is housed (either the Greenspring or Owings Mills Campus). Questions regarding the Mustang Days Orientation Program can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Stevenson University community. As the Director of First Year Experience, I look forward to assisting you in your transition. Whether you are a first-time-in-college student or are transferring from another college or university, I am here to help you become acclimated to the SU community and in accomplishing your academic and personal goals. Please take time to review Mustang 101 (download), which provides information on Mustang Days and your first year at Stevenson. I hope that you will find this website helpful.
If you have questions or concerns of any kind, please contact me at email@example.com.
All the best to you for a positive and productive first year!

Director of First Year Experience
