Life at Stevenson

Stevenson University considers student services and activities as important as the curriculum. Involvement in student activities is an integral part of the university experience. Activities help a student to grow socially, to foster friendships, to appreciate diversity, to develop management skills, and, in some instances, to benefit from leadership roles. Counseling, tutoring, and career placement services; programs of cultural enrichment; facilities for study, leisure, and refreshment; athletics, student clubs and organizations; and campus-wide special events are all part of the pervasive climate of learning that is Stevenson's principal service for students. With the addition of our first University-owned housing complex in 2004, students have had the opportunity to take part in many new events or to enjoy familiar activities in a new setting. The Student Affairs Office staff makes an extra effort to create a bridge between the resident and commuter communities through these activities. Special events, social and club activities, meetings, athletics, and other events are scheduled for afternoons, evenings, and weekends. Events such as the Welcome Picnic, Bonfire, Spring Formal Dance, and May Day Celebration are campus-wide traditions. A variety of clubs, two sororities, intramurals, lectures, art shows, plays and other entertainment events offer opportunities on campus during the week. The University also sponsors a number of athletic teams. Selected trips and other events are planned for weekends off campus. All students, full-time and part-time, are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities and university events.
