On behalf of all of us who work in Student Affairs – Residence Life & Housing, Student Life & Leadership, the Wellness Center, Diversity and Inclusion, and Student Conduct – it is my great pleasure to welcome you to Stevenson University. My hope is that you will take full advantage of all that Stevenson has to offer, both in and out of the classroom. You will find a dedicated, committed, and talented faculty that will both challenge and support you as you pursue your academic goals. I can also assure you that we have a devoted group in the Office of Student Affairs who are equally committed to your success.
We truly value the sense of community here and students frequently talk about this when you ask them what they like most about Stevenson. I encourage you to become an active member of the Stevenson University community – join a club or an organization, become a leader in Student Government, play a sport, join the marching band, or get involved in our Theatre program. And, take the time to support your fellow Stevenson students by attending their plays, sporting events, or other campus activities. Also, don’t lose sight of the fact that much of what you will learn at Stevenson will take place outside the classroom. So many opportunities will be available to you and I urge you to take advantage of them – attend presentations that are offered by guest speakers, go to cultural events such as art exhibits and theatre performances, and learn from your fellow students as they emerge as young leaders.
This is an exciting time at Stevenson. But, in order to appreciate what a great place Stevenson is, I think it is important that you choose to become an engaged, active member of our community. If you do, I am confident that you will find that Stevenson is not only a great place to be, but, when you graduate, you will find that Stevenson is also a great place to be from.
Dean of Students
