What Students Are Saying

Academically, Stephens College provides an environment for all to learn. The small class sizes and caring professors make students feel comfort in an academic environment
Kyla from Kansas City, MO
Since this is an art school - the classes are just that. Only a few general ed classes are necessary, and the rest are exactly what you are going into (which is much different than a regular university). Most of these classes are very hands on, and do deal with clients in the real world. It is difficult (like any other college) but if you are excited about your area of study you will have a good time!
Meredith from Leawood, KS
the course load and academics are most certainly rigorous. however, that is what makes it worth coming to stephens because we are learning things from the time we walk in the door most other programs don't begin learning until their junior year.

Just like any other college, you have to work hard for your grades. But one thing you can count on is one on one help from your professors. Thats something most bigger colleges and universities aren't able to do because of class size. Since Stephens classrooms on average have about 25 students per class, it is easy to receive help. Stephens really cares about success in the classroom so we have the Student Success Center which helps students who are struggling in classes to get back on their feet and raise those grades.

While classes are rigorous, staff is always ready to help in any way possible. The classes here are meant to push you not only academically but mentally and emotionally as well so that you will become a strong independent women. Using women's issues makes these classes more meaningful and rewarding not to mention interesting, for example take a chemistry class and you may learn how to make perfume!
Of course all of the teachers vary, but all are willing to work with you, and make sure each individual student succeeds. The classes range in difficulty, but if you're having issues Student Services are more than happy to help!
Savannah from Pinellas Park, FL
The courses here can be intense, but that it is to prepare you for the outside world. Though rigorous, you are sure to learn all that you need to know and have easy access to all of the help that you need to engrain this knowledge and these skills.
