I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and beginning to get mentally prepared to start learning (and retaining) information again! I want everyone’s first year at Stevenson to be smooth, easy breezy, and educationally beneficial, so I have complied a few tips and tricks in order to help you master your college courses and activities. These tips have truly helped me to successfully progress to my senior year in the Nursing program (shout out to my fellow Nursing majors), but these tips can do wonders for students of any major....Click here to read more.

     Everyone says college is the best four years of your life: it’s when you receive an education, build lifelong friendships, countless shenanigans that make the best memories, but most importantly you are supposed to find yourself.  However, none of this is just handed to you with your room key during freshman orientation.  One of the most important pieces of advice I could give to the incoming freshmen would be to get involved in everything Stevenson has to offer.  No one but you can build the memories or friendships or career that everyone wants from college and not many of those things are going to happen if you are sitting in your room waiting for exciting things to happen to you.  You have to pursue what sparks interest inside of you to find the incredible experience everyone talks about in college. ...Click here to read more.

I love my job here as an OWL and I wouldn’t want to spend my summer anywhere else! Every day as an OWL has been special and filled with excitement, but my favorite days by far were Mustang Days. From beginning to end, these days were filled with great emotions and of course so many smiles!  You know what? Let me  give you an inside look into our side of the Mustangs Days....Click here to read more.

One of my biggest fears coming into college was that I didn’t know how to make friends. I had the same friend group throughout high school and all of a sudden, I am starting fresh. Luckily, Stevenson has the summer registration program, Mustang Days, which allows new students to meet their future classmates and friends.  I realized on this day that meeting people, carrying conversations, and making friends is simple. The environment at Stevenson is so friendly, I can’t even walk outside without seeing someone I know and can have a conversation with.  If you are worried about meeting people trust me, it’s not hard and having people to depend on will make your college experience a better and stronger one....Click here to read more.

OWLs

The 2016 Orientation & Welcome Leaders.

Hooty hoot and hi there! I’m Emilee Thursby, one of the Senior Orientation & Welcome Leaders this summer. If you think you’re in the wrong place because I just called myself an OWL, fret not. You are correct when thinking that Stevenson is home of the Mustangs. Over the summer, when most students are home, a group of sixteen dedicated students stick around campus to help make the transition smoother for new students arriving to Stevenson University!

We are known as OWLs which is short for Orientation & Welcome Leaders. We come from all over campus to serve one purpose – be friend students enrolling this fall and make sure they are having the best experience possible! Over the summer you can find us nesting in the Office of Admissions, Office of Student Success, and the Office of Student Activities....Click here to read more.
