It’s Celebrate Stephens Alumnae Reunion Weekend on campus, and I’ve had a chance to meet a couple of amazing Stephens women.
What’s been most interesting is how alike they are—not in career or appearance or anything like that, but that they’re so driven and successful and confident. And clever. Stephens women are very, very clever.
Actually, I’ll just show you. So yesterday, at the W.O.W. dinner, which lets graduating seniors dine with alumnae, the Senior Class President, Megan Tongue, with the help of her fellow senior officers offered up a little rap about graduating from Stephens.*
It was to the tune of “Thrift Shop” by a rapper named Macklemore (yes, I had to look it up, but hopefully you’re more in tune with what the cool kids are listening to).
Regardless, here’s what our clever seniors came up with:
Hey Seniors, can we go graduate?
Nah, walk up to the stage
like what up gettin’ a diploma
I’m so pumped about my degree from the steve
cap on my head, I’m so [darn] classy
People like woah, I like a chick that’s sassy
Rollin’ in high heels
headed down 9th bein’ led
dressed in all black
cept’ my prezzy shoes, those are red
draped in chords, all girls standin’ next to me.
Should’ve worn flats
those look like bumpy streets
But shoot! they were clearance and cute!
cappin’ it gownin’ it
bout to go and get some compliments
Passin’ through Stephens
Turnin’ in my documents
All these awesome teachers
and a great president
spendin’ my money
some knowledge and investment
I’ma get a real job
I’ma get a real job
No, for real, ask HR, can I have a real job?
some tailored blazers
nice business attire
Guess I’ll need some razors.
Steve has a great degree
I’m getting’ that degree.
Hannah, Liz, and Mags?
Mizzou ain’t got nothin’ on my degree game
I could take Global Ethics, cross my fingers, hope I pass
Everyone that meets us be like Stephens, they got class.
