A lame University outside of Baltimore, MD. It consists of about 2,000 Students, broken down as such: 1,200 commuters (99% of which are girls who have had the same boyfriend since 1st grade) who are rarely seen outside of class, 250 Lax Bros, 250 ninja-like nursing majors who are never seen outside of class, 50 middle-class, horse riding, preppy-boy seeking douchey girls, and 50 other people, most of which hail from Pennsylvania or New Jersey. Stevenson seeks to become a legitimate university by adding a football team, since its basketball program has failed to do this. Has a stellar lacrosse team featuring about 15 all-americans and about 70 scrubs who believe being on a team with all-americans makes them all americans. Its school activities, school pride, and intramural athletics are anemic.
You go to Stevenson University? That sucks.

Stevenson University is located in Central Maryland in the Greenspring Valley area. The University has two campuses, one in Stevenson and one in Owings Mills. Stevenson is a private, independent, coeducational, liberal arts college with approximately 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students. When describing it, it is best to mention it used to be called Villa Julie College, in order to avoid confusion.
"I've decided enroll at Stevenson University."
"Where's that? I've never heard of it before"
"It was formerly Villa Julie College"
"Oh, I know where that is."

The real SU; a school filled with massive school pride and academics that are often overlooked by snobby kids who think you're only getting a good education if you're paying out your butthole for it. They give financial aid to almost everyone and are one of the only schools on the east coast to offer a specific career driven education. SU also has one of the highest job placement percentages within 6 months of graduation: around 97%, or 100% for medical technology majors.
A: I went to Stevenson University for my first two years but then I transferred to Johns Hopkins. I ended up transferring back for my last year.

B: Hopkins is a great University, pretentious or not.

A: It is on paper but the education and career focus here was way better, trust me.
