It’s hard to explain to outsiders just how awesome Stephens is. I wish I had considered it during my own college search a gazillion years ago.
Actually, I’m not sure I did much of a college search. I decided to stay home my first year, so I went to what was then UMR in Rolla. When that didn’t work out, I had one college brochure left—to what was then Northeast Missouri State—so that’s where I went.
Truman was a great school but I really should have put more thought into that decision.
Anyway, I was telling my mom (hi Mom!) this weekend that Stephens is really a college for uber-creative women. The creativity on this campus—from our graphic design to fashion to theatre and dance and marketing—is nothing short of amazing.
Today is Junior Day at Stephens, where young women much smarter than I was at that age are exploring their campus options (I can’t imagine anyone visiting Stephens and not wanting to go here!).
Anyway, our visitors are seeing first hand just how creative our campus is.
See? “Creativity” is even stamped on our sidewalk!
So yesterday I called my friend, Heather, a mom of three girls, to tell her more about Stephens. Her daughters are all amazing, and the oldest, Olivia, is such a talented artist.
The conversation went something like this:
Me: I’m not telling you how to raise your kid, but Olivia should really consider Stephens College.
Heather: She’s in seventh gr…
Me: Stephens is for really creative women and we have such a great graphic design program! Olivia is so creative and would be a great fit!
Heather: Ummmm. She’s 13.
But, seriously, it’s not too early to start thinking about it!
