Freshmen Mixer Was Out-Of-This-World!

Playing to the space and astronaut theme used during Freshmen Orientation Day, the Freshmen Mixer on Friday at the Pool Deck Patio was certainly an “out-of-this-world” experience that served as a great social introduction to Stevenson (and “Planet Stevenson”) for the Class of 2026!

Thanks to help from the FMP mentors, who organized and facilitated the event, there was plenty of music, dancing, snacks…and all kinds of great memories made! For more photos, check out our Instagram page.
