SU is Home During
Homecoming + Family Week
Alumni Support Athletics
On Friday, October 20, alumni, parents, students, and
friends of the university kicked off Homecoming + Family
Week at the 2017 Stevenson University Golf Open,
sponsored by Ruff Roofers. For the first time, Alumni
Relations and Athletics joined together to combine the
annual SU Golf Open, traditionally held in the spring,
and the Varsity Golf Alumni Homecoming Tournament.
Piney Branch Golf Club, one of the most beautiful
facilities in the region and home course of the current
Stevenson golf teams, served as the location of this year’s
tournament. Volunteers from the current golf teams
connected with participants on the course and during the
luncheon that followed, while coaches caught up with
alumni and friends of the institution.
Proceeds from this event will benefit Stevenson
University Athletics. Since our acceptance into the NCAA
in 1994, Stevenson has grown our athletic programs from
11 to 27, with the most recent additions of men’s ice
hockey and women’s beach volleyball. The men’s lacrosse
team won the NCAA Division III national championship
in 2013, while the women’s lacrosse team earned its
highest national ranking in the program’s history. Each
year we strive to compete among the best teams in
Division III athletics.
If you were unable to participate and would like to
make a gift in support of a team or the general athletics
fund, you may do so by visiting stevenson.edu/givetosu.
Actively engaging in the life of the University and
supporting the areas and programs about which you
are most passionate helps advance the institution and
provide our students with opportunities for success.
Alumni Welcome Mustang Families
Mustang families joined President Elliot Hirshman,
Ph.D., for coffee and conversation on Oct. 21, just
prior to the Homecoming tailgate and football game
against Albright (SU won, 26 to 23). The reception
featured a dynamic panel of alumni, students, parents,
and employers who shared their Stevenson experience
as students and illuminated how that experience and
preparation led to opportunity and career.
