Each month, we profile one of the amazing Phonathon students working in SU's call center. This month, we sat down with student caller, Billie '19, an elementary education major from Delmar, Delaware.

Why did you choose to come to Stevenson?

Everybody was so welcoming! I loved the close knit community aspect of Stevenson and I wanted to be a part of it. They also have an amazing Education department and great faculty.

What do you like best about SU now that you're here?

I love that Stevenson is a small school filled with people who really care about each other. Everywhere I go on campus I see somebody I know; it's such a great feeling to be surrounded by friends instead of strangers.

What activities do you enjoy outside of class?

I am in the Stevenson University Marching Band so that takes up a lot of my free time. I also enjoy going to the different events that MAP (Mustang Activities & Programs) puts on; they are always so fun!

What do you like best about being a student caller?

I love getting to talk to the alumni about their experiences at Stevenson/VJC. I get to hear some amazing stories that I will never forget!

What are your plans after graduation?

I plan on becoming an elementary school teacher in Maryland or Delaware soon after I graduate. I know that Stevenson will prepare me well for my career!

Tuesday, November 29 was #GivingTuesday, or as we call it at Stevenson, #Giving2SUDay. Sandwiched between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, the day was established five years ago to encourage us to return to the thanks and giving spirit of the season. It affords us the opportunity to support the organizations and efforts that mean the most to us and is fueled by the power of our connections to each other.#Giving2SUDay#Giving2SUDay was a great success! The total number of donors doubled from 2015 and over $4,000 in matching funds was contributed by Marc Bunting '91, to support Community Service and Service Learning at SU. Stevenson's success is a direct result of the generosity of our alumni, parents, faculty, staff, current students, and friends.

We send a huge "thank you" out to our #Giving2SUDay supporters and we hope that you enjoyed the givingest day of the year!

On #Giving2SUDay, a tremendous amount of support was shown for Mission: I'm Home, a Special Interest Group at Stevenson focused on rehabilitating damaged or destroyed houses - enabling displaced families to return home.
