Hello Stevenson! My name is Mackenzie Wieder, I am a senior Business Communication major and a programmer for MAP this year. I transferred to Stevenson last year and wanted to immerse myself in campus activities, and joining MAP is the best way to do that. I’ve learned so much about Stevenson, the student body, and myself, plus I met some really amazing friends in MAP. This year my plan is to hone my leadership skills, create a fun environment for Mappies, and make new memories that will last a lifetime. A fun fact about me is that during the summer I work and live at a Girl Scout camp.
Hi everyone! My name is Jenna and I’m the new Assistant Director of Student Activities and the new advisor to MAP. My passion for student programming came from my own involvement in student activities while I was an undergraduate student at Nazareth College in Rochester, New York (a small, liberal arts school similar to Stevenson). While I was in college, I became involved with student government and other organizations that planned events for the students. It was in my junior year that I discovered that I could do things like this as a career and decided to go to graduate school for Higher Ed Administration.So far, working with MAP has been really enjoyable. I sincerely love working with students to plan fun, engaging, and enjoyable activities for college students.I look forward to getting to know many of you and I want to encourage you to stop by my office (Rockland 2nd floor) and say ‘’hi!"
