Senior Mahajan Sampling Much Of What Stevenson Has To Offer

Variety truly seems to be “the spice of life” for Stevenson senior Sanya Mahajan.

“Salted caramel, turtle, blondies,” said Mahajan, rattling off just a few of her favorite brownie flavors to bake. “I love to bake and brownies are my favorite just because I can make so many variations of them.”

Mahajan’s interests and activities at Stevenson include a healthy sampling as well. She’s involved in seven different clubs and organizations on campus.

A four-year member of Catalyst Club, Mahajan is also the club’s current president. She is a three-year member of Model United NationsPeer Tutors and the Indian Student Association, of which she is Vice President. And she is in her second year of the Freshman Mentor Program and National Honor Society.

Lately, Mahajan has been most busy with Wellness Week, as she is also a three-year member and the current president of Peer Helpers, which organized and ran last week’s Wellness Week. Mahajan is thrilled with how the week turned out and how much enthusiasm there was for activities that coordinated with Wellness Week’s Four Pillars Of Wellness: Mindset, Sleep, Nutrition and Movement.

“My favorite lunch time activity was the Friday “Show Us Your Moves” for Movement,” Mahajan said with a laugh. “I saw a line of people outside the Student Lounge doing random yoga poses and they got a freeze pop for showing us their moves. That was fun! We just wanted to try to get people super passionate and enthusiastic about what we were doing.”

Mahajan says that two of her biggest passions ~ which get fed by all of her club involvements ~ are public speaking and wellness. She combined those two passions to start her own podcast, “Bamble Ramble,” available on SpotifyAnchor and Apple Podcasts.

Ready, Set…Clue! Curtain Rises Tonight On Fall Play “Clue!”

After months of preparation, and a full rehearsal that the Communications Department photographed on Wednesday night, the cast and crew of “Clue: High School Edition” is ready to hit the stage in their first of four performances over the next three days at Stevenson’s Black Box Theater.  

The production runs tonight (7 p.m.), tomorrow (7 p.m.) and Saturday (2 p.m. and 7 p.m.) and is SOLD OUT!

“Clue: High School Edition” is based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game. It is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party. When their host turns up dead, the guests all become suspects.

**As an interesting twist for this particular production, the audience will be on three sides of what is known as a “thrust stage” and the cast will go through the aisles and around audience members frequently, making them feel like they are right in the middle of the action and stuck in the mansion with the characters!
