Stephens’ Theatre program named #6 in the nation by The Princeton Review

August 30, 2016

Stephens College is one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The annual guide just announced that Stephens is featured in the new 2017 edition of the guide, “The Best 381 Colleges.”

This year the Theatre program at Stephens achieved a ranking of #6 in the nation.

“Stephens has a rich history in the performing arts, and we value the significance of truly robust arts training. We think that shows in the ranking we received today,” said Dr. Gail Humphries Mardirosian, dean of the School of Performing Arts. “With more than 30 performance opportunities a year, more than 30 guest artists across all disciplines, and a thoughtful experiential curriculum, we develop students who are well prepared to make a contribution to the arts and the world upon graduation.”

“This recognition is especially significant to us because the feedback of our own students helps determine our rankings,” she said. The Theatre program has consistently been recognized in the Top 20 nationwide. 

This year Stephens was also recognized at #6 for “Most Active Student Government.”

“Stephens’ outstanding academics are the chief reason we chose it for this book and we strongly recommend it to applicants,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s Senior VP-Publisher and author of the guide.
