Campus Champion

A challenging first semester led Brooke Stevens to embrace the college experience and help others with the stress of transitioning from high school to college. Three years later, Brooke is a resident assistant, a Career Services assistant, a youth mentor, a recent COR 101 teacher's assistant — and a natural candidate for a career in psychology. Just coming off the Residence Life and Housing Conference, where she was master of ceremonies to a group of 400 and led a talk on social media, you'll soon find her working the Career and Internship Fair on Wednesday, March 25, in the Corey Union Function Room.
