An excellent place to learn and live

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 2016 the University opened its newest and largest academic building, which houses the Beverly K. Fine School of the Sciences and Sandra R. Berman School of Nursing and Health Professions, and provides more space for the School of Design. At 200,000 square feet, the new Kevin J. Manning Academic Center contains plenty of space for state-of-the-art laboratories, studios, and more.
A great time to be a Mustang
With 27 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 six years.
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.
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, service learning, and study abroad.
