Stephens College Reviews
I have had a very good experience within my first year. Great activities and student involvement. Classes are also small and allow you to learn what you need. Some teachers may be unwilling to help as much as they could, but most of the time it is just right. As a student apart of the design program, I would of liked to see an easier way to obtain the fabrics and materials I need. Sometimes, I just dont have the money, and wish I could use my school money. The meal plan is amazing! The food is delicious! I could not ask for a better cafeteria. They do such fun things like midnight breakfast too. I know it is an old school, but I wish the rooms were a little more up to date. Everything is close by and near on campus. Getting to a Walmart of Joan's, however, is difficult without a car or bike unless you are willing to wait until Sunday when the school bus takes you. I absolutely love my school! GO STARS!
Stephens College is a gem tucked away in the heart of downtown Columbia. It’s accessible but private, the best of all worlds. Stephens’ students are smart, diverse, driven, and hopeful. It is a great place. Great students, great staff, great School, great value, and great food too!
Teachers in the Biology department are amazing, they truly want to help you succeed. Student success center is an excellent resource. Cafeteria has excellent food, lots of variety. The campus is small and quiet. Easy to find places. Dorms need work! They need to update several of the buildings. Scenry outside is beautiful, in walking distance of downtown. I was a transfer student and there was several problems that have come up throughout the year.
