3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Everyone has to live on campus because there's enough housing for everyone. There's a lot of different options, but I feel like there's only 3 residence halls that people actually want to live in. The ones in the James Madison Wood quad could definitely use some renovations and beautifying and getting rid of the cockroach problem in Tower Hall. The pet friendly halls sometimes smell really bad and the interiors of the buildings just don't look very attractive and the kitchens aren't the greatest. But I enjoy Tower Hall and I like that there's an on campus apartment option.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of good food places but they are pretty pricey. Hardly any of them have student discounts which is shocking.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus but from what I have heard it's not bad. I have heard rumors about it not being very safe.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: There is a lot to do if you have money. Many concerts and festivals are held in the warm seasons. There is always fun places to go downtown and around columbia. Lots of shopping and boutiques. It can be unsafe if you are wandering around downtown alone so just make sure you have a friend with you.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The security is high. Cameras are all over campus and we are alerted if there is ever a problem. Emergency poles are all around campus so if you need help they can come to you immediately. Lastly they are on call 24/7 and can pick you up if you need a ride. I love our security staff!

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Although stephens is a wet campus, there are no parties. There are limits to how many people you can have in your room and if you go over the limit you will get penalized. There is also quiet hours every weekend so it's impossible to talk or play loud music. If you want to find parties they will be in the bars and restaurants down town or in the frat houses affiliated with Mizzou.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: There is a lot of access to internships and many counsellors willing to help you find one. I plan to get an internship this summer and I don't think I will have much trouble finding one.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is definitely very expensive but the dorms are spacious and the heating and cooling works well. Community bathrooms can get gross at times but more often they are very clean. We have a lot of problems with the wifi and it's very frustrating. But you can always go to the computer labs or library which is only a 5 minute walk. The best part about Stephens is that we are allowed pets in our dorms and I don't know what I would do without my puppy with me.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We have a good basketball team

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It is a safe campus

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's a small city so all there is are parties

5 College Freshman

Majors: The Nursing program at SFA is one of the best out there

4 College Freshman

Academics: Some classes are hard, some classes are ok. Not everything is going to be easy. You have to work for it.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Stephens being a small all womens college, its already has a sense of community but the girls in the sorority seem to be beyond in love with their sorority and sisters and they do have a lot of events.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus, the security is amazing. Now Health??? Ive heard students hypothesize that the doctor on campus is a myth because she is never in her office.

1 College Junior

Campus Food: As I write this my hands are shaking due to the lack of quality food provided to me on this campus. I am currently living off of the quesadillas and carrots, which is the only good food provided at the god-forsaken place that they call stamper. The people of fresh ideas are rude, and usually on drugs. There is no one on campus that likes fresh ideas food. The Stars cafe has pretty good coffee though that gives me energy despite the lack of nutrition provided by Stamper.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Stephens is known for having very poor records in the athletic programs but they are slowly becoming stronger and rebuilt. They have a few years to be recognized as respectable programs, which is expected with new coaches and brand new programs.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of restaurants downtown and bars.

1 College Junior

Majors: Unless your a fashion major, the majors here are pretty awful. The professors here have great personalities and are nice, but sometimes they are not qualified for the subject they are teaching or the curriculum is awful. The course program is very general compared to other colleges.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Stephens is next to downtown so there is plenty of shops and restaurants to visit, and The Blue Note has worthy concerts. But Night Life is sketchy since Mizzou students dominate the town.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Stephens has a lot off money to give and it's pretty easy to get an activity based scholarship.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: There's not really a party scene on Stephens Campus but most just go down the street to Mizzou's frat parties which go on all the time.

3 College Junior

Administration: Although campus security is amazing and is probably one the best attributes to Stephens, the campus is still pretty dangerous. Stephens is across from Brookside Apartments which is known for sexual assault cases and because campus is downtown there is a lot of nightlife that goes on around campus. On campus rules are VERY lenient. There is underage alcohol and drugs on campus, and staff will know about it and do nothing. Even though it is an all womens' college the school is pretty liberal and allows male over night visitors. There are no consequences or punishment at Stephens College.

Campus Housing: Stephens does everything in their power to convince you that their dorm life is the very best when you are a prospective student. They show you the very best of the best and will only show you one room, a single room on the bottom floor. They do not show the bathroom, and there are reasons why. Stephens' dorm life is the worst. The rooms are small and normally awkward dimensions. The bathrooms have twenty layers of white paint covering everything, as if that will make it look any better. Hint: it doesn't. The sink in our current room is not even connected to the countertop. It is cheaply done. Everything is. The kitchen is in the basement and has probably not been cleaned since it was put in. Cockroaches are everywhere, especially at the beginning of the year. And the worst part? This happens in the more expensive dorm on pet quad. AND even if you ask to be put in cheaper housing, expect to not have your wishes granted.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Bars and frats are close by, depending on what you're into, and their are many different dance clubs and a comedy club. There aren't really parties on campus very often but they can definitely be found close.
