I am currently a freshman here. The campus live is great, the food is great and the administration/professors are also great and helpful. The dorms are comfy and reminds me of home. It is very spacey as well as the bathroom. NOW money. This school is very expensive and that is why I have to transfer and I am a FRESHMAN. The scholarships do cover most of the bill but I was still left with an 11,000 bill that needed to be paid and I have three scholarships! this is only the campus fee must I remind you, so that means whatever your scholarship cannot cover you must pay that same amount every semester. That means im paying 11,000 every semester. So therefore, I have to transfer because that is a lot of money unless you just have money like that. But please take advantage of these scholarships especially my TRANSFERS there is a scholarship that pays FULL TUTION so please take advantage of that. I hope this review helps!

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!
Stevenson University, while overpriced, is a great private college. I enjoy the smaller student to teacher ratio and the many clubs and opportunities to get involved on campus. Due to the smaller size of the college you get to know pretty much everyone very quickly, meaning your almost guaranteed to have a friend in every class!
