Student of the Week: Stegman Thompson


For the most part, students you’ll see here can be seen frequently throughout campus. Every now and then, however, you’ll meet someone who loves Le Moyne just as much as the next person, but who would rather stay home than live on-campus.

Junior communications major and commuter Stegman Thompson is such a person.  Thompson absolutely loves Le Moyne, a school that was always his No. 1 choice when applying for college.

“I like the small-school feel,” Thompson said. “It’s easier to navigate around campus and it feels cozier.”

That being said, Thompson is more than a little wary about on-campus living spaces.

“The downside of commuting is that it’s a pain to travel from my house to the school, especially in bad weather, and I’m sometimes cut off from on-campus events,” Thompson said. “But I also don’t have to pay room and board, I don’t have to deal with a roommate and I get my own bathroom. So I’d say I like commuting more.”

Even though Thompson isn’t on campus as much as his peers, he still tries to make the most out of his Le Moyne experience. He is especially fond of the faculty.

“I like the professors,” Thompson said. “They’re easy to talk to and they make themselves accessible if you need help. I’ve yet to encounter a bad professor.”

Thompson insists his life is boring, but his outside interests suggest otherwise. Thompson is particularly interested in the broadcasting aspect of communications and hopes to get an internship next summer at News 10 Now, admitting he is willing to try anything, whether it be PR or behind-the-scenes work. Additionally, Thompson enjoys comic books and film, and appears to get a thrill out of writing.

“I like to write a lot of fiction,” Thompson said. “Any story that pops into my head, I jot it down.”

Thompson has even had a story of his published, albeit as part of an anthology in grade school.

“When I was 10, we wrote short stories in class and the teacher published all of them,” Thompson said. “Mine was called ‘The Adventures of Supercat.’”

No matter where you can find him, on- or off-campus, you can bet that Thompson will have something to say (or write).
