Where academic excellence meets career success
With academic advising, a mentoring program for first-year students, free tutoring, and a sophisticated Office of Career Services, personal attention is there at every turn. Just as importantly, professors will take the time to help you individually. Stevenson offers more than 70 majors, minors, and tracks in six undergraduate schools, all designed to prepare students for success that will last a lifetime.

An excellent place to learn and live
Your home away from home at Stevenson sets the stage for both personal and intellectual growth. Getting involved is easy with more than 50 student organizations, opportunities in the performing and visual arts, a full schedule of campus activities and entertainment, and chances to volunteer in the community.

Stevenson students enjoy living in fully furnished, safe, and comfortable suites and apartments that have gained a reputation for being among the best in college housing. Rockland Marketplace, Stevenson’s main dining hall, is just steps away, and our meal plans are accepted at many local restaurants.

Stevenson’s campus resources continue to expand. In 2013 the University opened a 28-acre addition to its campus, boasting a new School of Design building. The University’s newest and largest academic building will include an expansive new home for the School of the Sciences and is scheduled to open in 2016.

A great time to be a Mustang
With men’s and women’s NCAA Division III Mustang athletic teams competing against the best teams in the region, there is a lot to cheer for at SU. Stevenson’s athletic program continues to grow, with new facilities to match. In addition to the former training center of the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens, student-athletes enjoy use of a 60,000-sq. ft. gym and an impressive 3,500-seat stadium, both of which opened during the past four years.

Be ready to take on the world
Things are a little different at Stevenson, and it’s all done by design. Starting in the first year, through the process of Career ArchitectureSM, students at SU are already thinking about what their life’s successes will look like and charting a course of study that helps them get there. Each major combines strong academic course work with practical experiences so that students are prepared to become leaders in their fields sooner rather than later.

What is Career Architecture?
Career Architecture helps prepare students for the workforce from day one. With the support of our career experts and committed faculty, the process helps you develop a personalized strategic plan based on your motivated strengths, interests, values, and individual goals. Through the Career Architecture process, you will begin to align your personal values and strengths with professional interests and ambitions while learning inside and outside the classroom.

Experiential learning
College is a time to explore the world and discover your values, interests, skills, and abilities. At Stevenson classroom experiences will provide you with knowledge and skills, while experiential learning will allow you to apply what you’ve learned in the outside world with the assistance of Career Services. Experiential learning opportunities include campus-based research, internships, the one-credit option, service learning, study abroad, and the Washington Center.
