New administrator will live at Stephens College
COLUMBIA (AP) - An incoming school administrator at Stephens College will be living on the Missouri school's campus next semester.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that incoming Vice President for Academic Affairs Suzan Harkness plans to live in a Columbia Hall apartment.
Harkness plans to live on campus at the private women's college when she arrives in January, while her 13-year-old son finishes school in Washington, D.C. Harkness officially takes over the job on Jan. 12.
Harkness now serves as special assistant to the president at the University of the District of Columbia, a historically black university.
She says she's looking forward to getting to know students and staff at the Missouri college and plans on attending lectures, fashion shows and learning how to ride a horse at the Stephens College stables.
