Our students love life at Stephens because we're committed to the student experience.

That’s what they told The Princeton Review. Our students say they feel at home here. They think our campus is beautiful, easy to navigate, and an ideal place to make friends. They also appreciate the College’s close relationship with the local community and value the interaction of different types of students on campus. 

And thats not all there is to love about life at Stephens. Our hometown of Columbia, Missouri, is frequently ranked one of the best college towns in America. There’s always something happening here, thanks to three colleges and 30,000+ college students. Columbia has it all: big-time college sports, film, music, and arts festivals, fantastic recreation, and a great downtown with lots of places to eat, shop, and check out the latest bands.

Stephens’ historic campus is just steps away from downtown Columbia, so you get the best of both worlds ... brick and ivy charm and the buzz of a happening college town. You’ll find a culture of respect and support and a network of friends eager to take on life’s extraordinary adventures with you. Our residence halls are genuinely a home away from home (you can even bring a pet from home!). We cant wait to welcome you here.
