Jason - 12/24/2021

It is a very nice and prestigious school where I feel like the world is at my figure tips and I don't have to worry about unexpected visitors coming to interrupt my school.Also, my family feels very comfortable about me being on my own in a secure environment.

ALEXANDREA - 04/28/2021

I love the modern feel and look to the campus. Has a feel of a small town complex with everything in walking distance. The administrators are wonderful and informative to talk with. Housing is large enough and comfortable. The food choice are many .

Brianne

Commuter school everyone lives no more than 1hr away and goes home on the weekends. Super boring school with nothing to do on the weekends. No school spirit

Michael

Stevenson University is a great school. Class size doesn't exceed past 24 students normally and the professors are accessible majority of the time. The cafeteria food is ok, but we do have other on campus food providers that are much better. Our school is really sports based. Which is a great thing for things to go to on the weekend. But not very good for people who desire friends/family and don't play sports. We have clubs as well and a great amount ranging from MILE,ASU,BSU,Anime, Video Game Club, PAWS , and etc. Stevenson is more of a commuter school because you tend to have more people leave on the weekend rather than stay on campus. College is really what you make it. Stevenson is definitely striving hard to bring the home feeling to it's students and for that i will forever be grateful for. Because I have made some life long friends.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    Hello seventeen year old John, you are about to start the most important semester of high school; junior year. This is where you need to start truly finding yourself, and what your interests are. You will start applying for colleges, financial aid, many scholarships, and possibly even making a decision on where you want to go, and what you want to study. What you need to know right now however is that you need to make sure you are passionate about what you want to study, and love what you do. Start trying out new things, join new clubs, explore new possibilities. You never know what you will end up liking, and the more diverse you are, the better you will look to colleges, and scholarship opportunities. Another tip I want to give you, is if you plan to go to community college first, make sure the credits you take will transfer to the university you plan to attend after community college, don’t waste money on credits that will not transfer. Good luck, and enjoy your last two years of high school, and keep working hard in college; it will pay off in the end.

  14. What are the most popular student activities/groups?

    As a commuter I cannot speak on dorm life and campus life, but there's something for everyone at Stevenson. Stevenson University is a "dry" campus and there aren't too many places to drink around Owings Mills, so you usually have to make your own fun. No matter, you can see people lounging about and diggin' the scene on the Owings Mills campus at the dorms. Basketball, volleyball, water gun fights...the only limit is your imagination.

  15. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    The stereotype about Stevenson University students fall into three categories; jocks, rich kids, or art kids. Stevenson University has a robust sports program with an insanely good D3 Lacrosse team. Stevenson University also has a Film and Theatre program, which is a major attraction to kids who ride fixed-gear bicycles and wear scarves. Lastly, the tuition for Stevenson University is rather pricey, so many get the impression that if you go to Stevenson you come from a family of means. If Montgomery County, Annapolis and the 83 Corridor mean anything to you, then you know what I'm talking about. However, many students at Stevenson University are very relaxed and laid back and there aren't many "cliques" at the school. It's college after all. Hang out with who you want!

  16. What are the academics like at your school?

    The academics at Stevenson University are well...wonderful. Many teachers knew me by first name, only because I liked them so much I took their course the following year. My favorite class had to be Creative Writing Poetry with Katherine McCord. Writing is my thing, and in Poetry all we did was (wait for it) write poems and discuss them. The caliber of students you meet at Stevenson is astounding. If you're into Philosophy, Theater, Rhetoric or even basket weaving, there's someone at Stevenson you could talk to. Stevenson University's business model is based around "designing your career", and they supplement that with Career Services and courses that get you in the "professional" mind state. But, many instructors at Stevenson University cherish knowledge for the sake of knowledge and encourage students to learn as much as they can. Though one of the smallest departments, the English department at Stevenson University is comprised of some of the smartest people I've ever met. Dr. Tamer, Dr. Brown, Dr. Marshall and Dr. Van Aken are only a few of the instructors I've had contact with at Stevenson University, and all have left a lasting impression. How many instructors do you know had you read Fight Club and American Psycho?

  17. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    My overall opinion of Stevenson University is a good one. As a transfer student the first day of class I felt like I was being challenged, and my instructors actually knew what they were teaching. Nine times out of ten my instructors held doctorates in their field, and the ones who didn't were just as knowledgeable. With very small classes (my Spanish class Junior year had seven people or so) the one on one time you can have with an instructor is virtually limitless. The Greenspring campus is beautiful and its design is very open; a park comes to mind when walking through the campus. The Owings Mills campus is new and fresh, and the Business school is positively luxurious with polished wood and that new Library smell. Computer labs (both Mac and PC) can service your electronic needs, a wonderful Library at the Greenspring campus, and a general feeling of academia await those who seek education at Stevenson University.
