Welcome to Stephens!
On Thursday, new Stephens freshmen and transfer students moved into their new home away from home thanks to the help of many staff, faculty and fellow students.
Today marks the start of fall classes for 608 residential students (including 207 freshmen and transfers) and 415 Graduate and Continuing Studies students. Good luck to everyone this year!

Public Relations Student Society of America Informational Meeting
6 p.m., Aug. 30; Walter 206
Join us for our introductory informational meeting to see how PRSSA can enhance your education, broaden your network and launch your career! Leadership points available!
The Public Relations Student Society of America is a pre-professional organization that gives students the tools and knowledge they need to be prepared for a career in communications or any other career path they choose. We offer internship resources, chances to enhance your portfolio, great networking opportunities, and job search tools.
Digital Film & Media:
An open house will be held on Friday, Aug. 26 from 4-5:30 in HCC, Room 27 for all new and returning film/media students and anyone else who wants to drop by. It's a meet-and-greet for the department; there will be snacks and ping-pong!
All students in the fashion program who plan to major in Fashion Design and Product Development, Fashion Marketing and Management, Fashion Communication or will be a candidate for the Apparel Studies concentration as part of a Liberal Studies major, MUST have a current copy of the Fashion Department Handbook. Handbooks will be given out to students in some selected fashion courses, but we know this will not get a book into the hands of each student. If you have not been given a fashion handbook by Thursday, Sept. 1, you will need to get your own copy from the Fashion Department office. Please read over the entire booklet and note the facts page at the end of the booklet. Each fashion student is responsible for having her own copy of this book. If you have questions, please call 876-7233 for more information.
