    Stephens is a highly respected college known throughout the US. The list of alumni who have gone on to great things is quite large and will only continue to grow with each graduating class. This group of alumni is also a great source for internships and employment after graduation. While tuition is higher than some other institutions, the benefits and perks of a private college are quite nice.

    I am very happy at Stephens. Even though I wasn't really warm and fuzzy about the all girls part, I feel like it's been a great experience that I wouldn't trade for any other. The only thing about Stephens that I haven't been a hundred percent happy about is the fact that the school practically makes you live in the dorms. I have done the math, and for the price that I pay to share a bedroom with another girl and a kitchen with an entire building is the same as I would pay to have an apartment to have a bedroom and bathroom to myself, and a kitchen shared only by three others.
