School Information
“A lot of universities like to talk about what they are — and that's cool — but we're going to do something different and tell you what we're not. Which means most importantly we're not big — we're perfectly sized for you and your ambitions. We're not in the big city, but we're right by it. We don't preach, but we do teach, mentor and listen. We don't focus on the past — we're busy making the future. We don't just master technology; we create, debate and explore our relationship with it. Most of all, we're not just a degree. We're your first steps toward that dream job and your pathway toward leading the future. So now that we've told you what we're not we hope that also tells you a lot about what we are — and all that you can become — at Stevens” (Source: https://www.stevens.edu/). Stevens was founded in 1870. Furthermore, “We offer a challenging, tech-infused curriculum in more than 300 areas of study for our 8,000 students” (Source: https://www.stevens.edu/discover-stevens/stevens-by-the-numbers).
