In terms of academics, this school is top-notch. In four years, I received a top-of-the-line educational experience, with professors and faculty who I have fostered relationships that extend beyond the classroom and into professional development. However, regarding the social aspect of the "college experience," I found it to be rather lacking. Stevenson University is not located in the typical college town and there is not too much around in the area to enjoy when you are not doing homework.
Stevenson offers a vast array of programs to study and a multitude of placement experiences in your field of study to ensure your success in the program, as well as potential employment following completion of your program.
Dorm living is spacious and allows you to make friends very quickly. Apartment living allows you to stay on campus but gives you more freedom, a kitchen to cook, a living room to decorate, and your own individual room!

I attended Stevenson 2012-2013. Although I did not complete my education there, Stevenson was a great school. I enjoyed the campus and the staff. The small class sizes allowed for you to develop more personal relationships with your professors so they could better help you throughout the semester. I liked the dual campus option. Living on the Owings Mills campus but being able to attend classes on both the Owings Mills campus or the Green Spring campus allowed for a more intimate campus style. Buildings were fairly close together and easily accessible. The only down fall to me was the on campus food options. Jazzmans was a nice touch but you grow tired of Pandini's or the Cafe. The dorms were nice. I had the luxury of moving into one of the on campus apartments after dealing with a difficult roommate situation which was even better. Overall, If I could have, I would have finished my education at Stevenson. It's a great school.
Stevenson University is a great institution and provides students with a lot of resources and opportunities that allow them to excel. People on campus, whether it is another student or staff, are always willing to help each other. The campus has a great atmosphere. Since it is a smaller school you will always recognize people when walking to class. The housing is great since the dorms are suite style and each suite has its own bathroom. The only thing that I would change about Stevenson is the meal plans and food selection. The meal plan is overpriced for what you get and the quality of food. The hours of operation of the dining options are strange and sometimes inconvenient if you have late classes.
