It was fall semester of my sophomore year. My friend (and MAP president at the time) Kris finally convinced me to come a MAP meeting after weeks of persuading. I told him I would give it a try, but I thought it was going to be one of those clubs where I go for one meeting and never show up again. I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect since I’ve never been part of a club like MAP, so I was kind of walking in blind. When I got there, the first thing we did was an icebreaker. I don’t remember the exact activity that we did, but I do remember that I liked it a lot. The actual meeting intrigued me as well because I was finally able to see what happens behind the scenes of how MAP events are organized, and I also got insight of other events I probably wouldn’t have known about if I hadn’t attended that meeting. A year and a half later, I have no regrets. I have made some friends and made even more memories, and I have nothing else but MAP to thank for that.

Last year, MAP did a Mystery Bus trip to the Baltimore Zoo, so this year we decided to continue that tradition. This year's Mystery Bus Trip will be held on Sunday, February 25 and tickets are already sold out! Clues for this trip were posted on the Rockland staircase and also on MAP's social media. If you have not heard or seen the clues, here they are!
The three clues that I have given were...
"Steel and Steed"
"You will be attending a dinner and a tournament."
"You will have a good knight!"
I hope to see you there and I hope you enjoy the surprise!
When I first arrived at Stevenson, I had no idea what to club to join since every club on campus was fighting you to join theirs. There was one organization that caught my eye the most, and that was MAP. MAP was one of the first organizations that I was exposed to and I’m glad it was! It is a group of students who just loved to bring activities to the campus to allow everyone a chance to have fun, meet new people, and to be inspired from it. Overall, MAP has been my favorite organization thanks to the great first impressions and overall atmosphere it can provide anyone. There were many events that occurred so far throughout this year but the ones that I personally loved the most was PaintU during orientation, 70th birthday bash, and the talent show. These were the first college activities where it brought everyone together for music, amusement, and for socializing. It was through these events that I got to meet so many new people and was able to kick off the beginning of college excited for whatever was next to come. I believe that many people should join MAP for a variety of reasons. MAP gives everyone the opportunity to come together and put together events that the whole campus can enjoy along with meeting new people and seeing people come out of their shells to have a great time. It also made myself want to meet new people and I was always happy to do what I could. MAP became home to me and I hope it can become other’s homes as well!

I joined MAP my first spring semester at Stevenson. I really enjoy participating and helping out with the various events held on campus. I decided to join MAP because I saw it as a great opportunity to make new friends. Some of the events I volunteered for were Rockland Blowout, Stevenson 70th Birthday Bash, karaoke and many more.
As an anniversary celebration of the opening of Rockland we are hosting Rockland Blowout! Every year MAP has sprinkled new themes to bring a new taste to the marketplace. This years’ theme is Around the World, which means a glimpse of all 200 countries packaged into one. At this years Rockland Blowout we are bringing exotic Hawaiian Belly dance & African step dance lessons. Aside from the Zumba like fun, we also have different cultural catered foods, bingo, crafts and giveaways. To add creativity to the mix, were having a customizable t-shirt station to get a design stamped on, from a select list of choices. As well as customizable street signs, rain sticks, and free cookbooks. Were also having a challenge for all students to try to make their way through all the activities to receive stamps on their “passports” to receive bubble tea! Come travel the work with MAP!
