School Highlights

Personal Attention

Small classes mean individual attention. When you question a concept, when you're ready to stretch yourself, when you're tackling something new, it's important to have faculty ready (and available) to help. Small classes also mean more leadership and research opportunities. It's the kind of environment where you can really explore what inspires you and grow as a student and (future) professional. 

Culture of Advisement 

Stephens College is known for its emphasis on one-on-one advising. Our advisors take the time to understand your goals and strengths and help you tailor a career path and course load that’s right for you. These are experienced professors with years of experience helping to guide students.
