Mustang Days

  • Getting started

    Our summer orientation program is designed to prepare you for a successful college experience. Reach out, make connections, and get to know SU.

    RSVP Online

Mustang Days is Stevenson's summer orientation program designed to help all new incoming (freshmen and transfer) students make a smooth transition to college. Students will have the opportunity to connect with other new students, meet faculty within their major, and become familiar with important campus resources.

In June, students and their families will attend one of the Mustang Day programs. 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 Campus or the Owings Mills Campus. Questions regarding the Mustang Days Orientation Program can be directed to .

  • Welcome

    Welcome

    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 (online or download), which provides information on Mustang Days and your first year at Stevenson. I hope that you will find this website helpful.

    At your Mustang Day you will hear from faculty, learn the course requirements to earn your degree, meet fellow incoming students, register for classes, get your Stevenson ID, and more. Invitations with RSVP information are mailed in May to all freshmen students who have deposited to attend in the fall, as well as all accepted transfer students. The program runs from 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Each school/major is assigned to a particular date as listed below. While we expect all new students to make every attempt to attend their assigned program, we do provide make-up options. If you are unable to attend on your scheduled day, please indicate this on the online RSVP form and we will be in touch with you regarding a make-up day.
