5 College Freshman

Academics: Stevenson University is dedicated into having their students become professionals in whatever their career field is. Advisers are extremely helpful, they want what is best for you. You only need to be in classes that are related to your career path, even if you are designing your own path. Coursework/ curriculum is related to students majors and is manageable if you learn and know how to be organized and manage your time well. Registration process is essay if you plan ahead of time. Stevenson University academics are great.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Until recently, Stevenson University was just a small liberal arts college. The school upgraded to University status, and it's kept its primary programs up to par. While most degrees have a liberal arts foundation, the academics here are well-rounded, diverse, and strong. Stevenson's strongest areas of study are education, nursing, and paralegal studies. In fact, the paralegal studies program was the first in the state accepted by the American Bar Association. No matter what the subject or major, Stevenson University faculty is always available to help the students. Most teachers respond to emails within hours and some even give out their cell phone numbers. As a result, the professors are extremely accessible and personable.

Stevenson University's courses are an appropriate level of difficulty for college. Teachers often say that for every hour of class time students should spend one hour studying and doing homework. If the workload becomes too difficult, tutors are available. Some courses also have upper level students assisting with study and tutoring sessions. There is also an online, 24/7 homework-help program for students to use that includes a live chat interface with certified tutors. With so many opportunities for success, even a huge workload from procrastination can be conquered with a little help from the school.
