Your brain needs room to grow-—how’s 200,000 square feet sound?
Our newest and largest academic building, which opened in fall 2016, houses the Beverly K. Fine School of the Sciences and the Sandra R. Ber
man School of Nursing and Health Professions. The new Kevin J. Manning Academic Center (MAC) triples the amount of space available for these growing programs. With dozens of state-of-the-art science laboratories equipped with industry-standard technology, four nursing simulation and skills labs, a terrarium/aquaria room, and much more, the MAC provides the space and equipment necessary to prepare students for professional careers.

Stevenson University, located in the heart of Maryland just north of Baltimore, offers an innovative education that combines a traditional liberal arts education with extensive career preparation. Our exciting approach to education quickly responds to real employer and student needs—with challenging programs and experiences that will prepare you for a real future. Stevenson combines the best features of a liberal arts college—small classes, a broad perspective, and a thorough grounding in writing, analytical, and technology skills—with specialized, real-world professionalism that translates to an above-average job placement rate. During the past year, 93% of Stevenson graduates were employed or went on to attend graduate school within six months of graduation.

Over the past five years, Stevenson graduates have maintained an 87% acceptance rate into postgraduate health professions programs for competitive applicants. Meanwhile, students seeking further education in Physical Therapy and Veterinary Medicine have achieved a 100% acceptance rate.

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 important, 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.

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 lives’ 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.
