“There’s a lot of great things that I like about Stevens-Henager. One is the student-to-teacher ratio. At a lot of big colleges, you’re one of hundreds of students in one class, and you’ve got one teacher. Here at Steven-Henager, you can get one-on-one time with the teacher. It’s a really great setup. The classes are generally fairly small, sometimes from six to ten people in a class. Very easy to work with.”

- Jason Stott
Graphic Arts (AAS), Web Design & Development (BS)

“The ‘one-on-one’ atmosphere and a smaller classroom setting more closely fit my learning style. I wanted to graduate ready for a career in a specific field as soon as possible. I wanted to be more marketable than the person next to me. Stevens-Henager was the answer for me.”

- Tiffany Donoho
Medical Specialties (AOS)

“Pretty much every instructor I had had hands-on experience. Either they had worked in the computer science field previously or they currently work there.”

- Roger Hall
Computer Technology & Networking (AAS)

“After receiving my degree in 2003, I was better qualified for higher-level positions including supervisory positions. I was able to network with other students at school to help me find a good job. I went from making $12.50 an hour before college, to over $22.00 an hour after college.”

- Adam Wisden
Computer Science with a Networking & Information Systems Security emphasis (BS)

“I knew where I wanted to go, and I wanted to get there as fast as I could, so I really enjoyed the accelerated learning program. The atmosphere was fantastic, and the comradery and support system between the students and the instructors were very helpful.”

- Greg Egbert
Business Administration with a Human Resources emphasis (BS)

“The main thing I liked was the flexibility and the career-focused learning. I have a very busy life, so it was nice being able to get my schoolwork done on my own schedule. Instead of having to take lots of generals, I was able to learn about the things I was interested in, such as business, finance, and marketing.”

- Chris Bitton
Business Management & Accounting (AAS)

“I liked Stevens-Henager because it was flexible. It worked with my schedule, being a working mother. The instructors were all very knowledgeable and helpful. It was a great atmosphere between the students and the instructors.”

- Heather Norman
Business Management & Accounting with an Event Planning & Management emphasis (AAS)

“My grandma attended Stevens-Henager in the 1950s, so I guess you could say the college is something of a family legacy for me. I liked how every class was directly applicable to my career path. The instructors were flexible, understanding, and willing to work with me if any issues came up.”
