The 4th Annual Spring Spectacular was held on the north campus last week on a beautiful spring day. This year the science and math demonstrations were joined by the psychology department who held some virtual reality activities.  Among the highlights were the liquid nitrogen ice cream, cool soap bubbles, the air cannon and the ping pong ball fountain! This event was made possible with help from all the student volunteers. More more photos, visit the SOS Facebook page

Members of Phi Sigma Sigma

Stevenson recently announced the invitation extended to two Greek social fraternities on campus, Phi Mu Delta and Phi Beta Sigma, to colonize on campus. They will complement the university’s two existing sororities, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., and Phi Sigma Sigma.  Pictured above are three members of Phi Sig who are chemistry/biochemistry majors, L-R Kayla Tuner (biochem) Shelbie Baird (biochem) and Nicole Kibler (chemistry)

Stevenson has a very active athletic program, with 27 NCAA division III sports. Just in the School of the Sciences, more than 15% of students play a sport, and more than a third of the 2017 incoming class was an NCAA recruit! Students athletes are required to maintain a minimum GPA in order to participate in sports and receive mandatory extra help through the Office of Student Success if their GPA starts to slip.  Understandably, chemistry and biochemistry majors often have one or more laboratory sessions a week which are extremely important to attend. The department works with athletes' competition schedule so that students can attend alternate sections of their laboratory or arrange an alternate time to complete laboratory work. In chemistry, we have had students in every athletic program who have succeeded in their course work as well as on the field. Pictured is Morgan McLuskey-Wirtz, a biochemistry senior who is headed to Virginia Commonwealth University school of Pharmacy this fall. Morgan has played golf her entire SU career while maintaining high academic standards.  Follow Mustang Athletics gomustangsports.com or on their Facebook pagephoto credit: gomustangsports.

The chemistry department kicked off the school year with games and cookies last week to bring students and faculty together. There was fun and laughter as majors from all years came for a little down time. It's a great opportunity to meet and get to know your faculty on a more personal level. Cookies with Chemists meets every other Wednesday at 2 PM in Solve Center D. The next event is on September 13th. Hope to see you there! 

Incoming class of 2021 freshmen are converging on campus this June for Mustang Days to complete orientation to Stevenson University. Students will learn how to register for classes and complete their Fall 2017 semester class schedule, as well as meet their Student Success Coach who will work with them their entire first year at Stevenson. Freshmen also take placement tests, meet faculty in their major, learn about campus resources, obtain their Stevenson student ID and meet fellow incoming students.
