What Students Are Saying

3.85 Average Rating
Don't be scared to meet people and get involved. All the clubs and activities are really fun, and everyone wants more members. The leadership scholarship helps with that as well.

Make nice with your RA in case you have roommate troubles, because everyone is required to share a room unless you bring a pet. But roommates are usually pretty great!
Caitlin from Columbia, MO
To the future Stephens women;
Stephens College is an open environment where women are free to express themselves in almost any way possible. The Stephens staff and alumni make it possible for the current Stephens women to achieve far more than a degree
Kyla from Kansas City, MO
Incoming students should be made aware that this is an all girls college, and that housing on campus is necessary all four years: unless otherwise approved. This college has very small classes (anywhere from 5-20) and has a lot of hands on training in any field offered. This is a perfect college to help with networking and learning real world industry items.
Meredith from Leawood, KS
coming to stephens is one of the greatest decisions i have made, it is also an incredible investment i've made. when deciding to come to steve's know that the initial commitment is easy, staying committed through four years is difficult but it is definitely worth it in the end.
Nae from Kansas City, MO
Don't be afraid to stand out and be yourself. Stephens is all about being unique and diversity is valued incredibly here. Also since we are private and a little more expensive than our neighboring schools, going with the cheapest dorm isn't a bad idea. Community style bathrooms are easy to get used to (and a little better considering they are cleaned daily), so if you're tight on money, but love Stephens so much then Searcy or Prunty are the halls for you!
Suhey from Kansas City, MO
Don't dismiss this college before making a visit, its small size and personable, profession and caring staff make this feel more like home away from home rather than just a place where you are a number rather than a name. Everyone here is on a first name basis from students to staff (even the college President)!

Also remember, that even though this campus is a girls only campus, there is no reason to worry about not being able to meet boys if that is what you want to do, with Missouri University and Columbia College just 2 miles away in either direction there are males all around.

Come visit the campus, and try to sit in on some classes to make sure it's right for you.
Savannah from Pinellas Park, FL
Definitely look into taking AP courses and tests in high school as well as CLEP tests to see what liberal arts classes you can get out of paying for.
