CCCanals Steven

Campus Champion

If freshmen year was a CD track, Steven Canals would hear it every day on repeat. For six years, the residence hall director of Shea Hall has helped students deal with the anxiety that comes with the first-year college experience. Whether it’s homesickness or uncertainty about a major, Steven has been one of his residents’ greatest resources. He prompts them to act with care and consideration, something that he has done as a program coordinator in the Multicultural Life Office and the advisor of the student group, Spectrum. A thoughtful champion, Steven is always listening, even if it’s a song he has heard before.
