A Stevenson education is defined by exceptional experiences, connections to careers, and a welcoming, dynamic community where you’ll find the opportunities, mentoring, and support to define your vision of success.
You’ll enjoy living on campus, exploring Maryland and the region, being involved in University life, studying abroad, and cheering on our championship teams. But you’ll also enjoy the opportunities that only Stevenson can offer: small classes with faculty who care and experiences inside and outside the classroom that allow you to explore, create, lead, connect, and succeed throughout and beyond your years as a student at Stevenson.
A community centered on your success
You’ll learn from faculty who are active in their professional and academic fields and dedicated to teaching from experience. A 16:1 student-faculty ratio ensures that you can cultivate meaningful connections with your professors. Stevenson’s innovative, entrepreneurial spirit reflects the mindset you need for success in today’s world. We’re constantly seeking new opportunities and networks of support for our students, from new courses and degree programs to experiential learning, leadership, service, and internship experiences you can use to fulfill your life’s goals.
A connection to career
We prepare students for the workforce from day one. Whether you’re still deciding on a major or know what you want to study, we offer a distinctive approach to exploring new paths, changing destinations, and mapping your vision for the future. With the support of our career experts and committed faculty, the process helps students develop a personalized strategic plan based on their motivated strengths, interests, values, and individual goals.
There are a number of career preparation resources offered to students through Career Services: career advising, career fairs (major-, industry-, and veteran-specific events), on-campus interviews, networking events, graduate school workshops, service learning, and internships. It’s impossible to earn an education at Stevenson without being prepared for life after college.
At Stevenson, exceptional experiences aren’t bound by classroom walls. We encourage students to continue learning outside the traditional classroom setting. Our students have deployed reef balls in Chesapeake Bay, explored Berlin’s architecture through a camera lens, traveled to France to play ice hockey, and participated in national leadership programs.
Starting in your first year, with the support of our Center for Student Success and Office of Career Services, we’ll help you blend study abroad, service learning, research, internships, and other practical experiences that support your personal interests and career aspirations.
Your home away from home
Home to around 2,900 students, the residences at Stevenson University go above and beyond your housing expectations. We offer spacious apartments with full kitchens and roomy suites with two bedrooms and a private bathroom, combining the comforts of home with the excitement of independent living.
Residence life that feels like home and a vibrant culture and social life are important components of the SU experience. Within the heart of Maryland, Stevenson students appreciate the beauty of rural surroundings with the convenience and appeal of a nearby urban setting.
Stevenson opened the 200,000-sq. ft. Academic Center in 2016. The building offers state-of-the-art facilities for the School of the Sciences, School of Design, and School of Nursing and Health Professions. Stevenson recently completed renovations to the Owings Mills campus. A new quad serves as an attractive outdoor gathering space and walkable link between buildings. Garrison Hall is now home to the Student Commons, which features one of our four fitness centers, club meeting rooms, a gaming room, an eSports suite, a coffee shop, and a reading room.
