A campus and community that can't wait to meet you. 


About Student Life at Stephens 

Our students are happy with life at Stephens.

That’s what they told The Princeton Review, which ranks Stephens as #17 in Best Quality of Life. 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 that's not all there is to like about life at Stephens. Our hometown of Columbia, Missouri, is frequently ranked as one of the best college towns in America. Here, there's always something happening, thanks to three colleges and 30,000+ college students. Columbia really has it all: big-time college sports; film, music and arts festivals; amazing recreation; and a great downtown with lots of places to eat, shop and check out the latest bands.

While Stephens is only steps away from downtown, our historic campus is also worlds apart. Here, you’ll find a culture of respect and support — and a network of friends eager to take on life’s amazing adventures with you. Our residence halls are truly a home away from home (you can even bring a pet, just like home). We can't wait to welcome you here.
