All About Student Activities
Two-time alumnus Stephanie Box considers the Island University her second home. The assistant director of the University Center and Student Activities Department has seen the campus flourish and is proud of its history and future plans. So it’s no surprise that Box has become part of the driving force shaping the institution. She’s fostered many new student activities which include the Aloha Days freshman camp, the TIDE Peer mentoring program and the Alternative Spring Break. As Student Affairs Homecoming Committee chair, she has helped plan a week-long celebration of events which include a picnic, a parade, casino night and Homecoming Court activities. As part of the first freshman class in 1994, Box earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in 1998 and 2002 and she was the first in her family to receive a master’s degree. Her volunteerism includes serving as the Crescent Circle chairwoman and past advisor for the Gamma Phi Beta International Sorority and public relations advisor for the Beta Theta Pi fraternity. Box is active on several committees including Waves of Welcome, the Islanders Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Team, the First-Year Experience and Islander Lights. The Sacramento, Calif., native is a member of the Association of College Unions International and the Association of Fraternity Advisors and has presented on topics ranging from “Characteristics of Effective Leaders” to “Roles of a Mentor.” She has received numerous honors including the January 2009 University Center and Student Activities’ Director’s Award and is a past recipient of the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Young Alumni Award.
