With 2017 nearly finished, it’s time to get a glimpse of what’s to come in 2018. Stevenson University has pledged to offer students an exceptional college experience, a connection to their career, and a community focused on their success. The university is entering the new year with several programs and initiatives to further meet that promise. EXCEPTIONAL COLLEGE EXPERIENCE Renovations in Garrison Hall Arts Initiative To further support students, the university is reno- vating the first floor of Garrison Hall North, located on the Owings Mills campus, to serve as a student club and activities center. Among other exciting new features, the center will include clubs sports offices, three meeting rooms, a fitness center, and a console game room. The center will also serve as the home for Stevenson’s eSports team, which will have its own eSports room. The team will be covered in the next issue of Ventures, but in the meantime, take a sneak peek at their goings-on at stevenson.edu/esports The arts are alive at Stevenson University! From guest speakers, film screenings, and theatre productions to music performances and exhibitions, SU’s cultural events inspire creativity, learning, and discovery. Additionally, beginning this fall, Stevenson began to supplement the Cultural Programs and Exhibitions schedule with a series of Pop-Up arts experiences, creating a robust, arts- rich campus community. Pop-Ups include hands-on design workshops, impromptu musical and theatrical performances, creative conversations, and more. These arts experiences will be hosted outside of the University’s traditional venues at a variety of campus locations at the heart of student engagement and activity.   To learn about cultural events during the upcoming spring semester, visit stevenson.edu/arts.
