Student Support

Our mission is to help create equitable access to education, and one of the ways we embody that is by making sure our students have every support they need, from mental health to financial aid, including campus safety, accessibility, career services, and even a clothing closet for professional clothing. We are here with one purpose: To serve you.

How to Engage

We wouldn’t thrive today without the ongoing support and connections with regional, statewide, and national business and industry. Our relationships mean business leaders can connect with our students for internship and hiring opportunities, provide demonstrations in the classrooms, lead field trips for hands-on experience in the workplace, and support our curriculum development and classroom lab equipment. We are fortunate to have such a network to support our students – if you’d like to connect with us, we are ready anytime!

With a name like Thaddeus Stevens, the College has been living up to an impactful legacy for more than a century. Founded by a bequest in the will of statesman and philanthropist Thaddeus Stevens, the College began in 1905 as a school for orphans, teaching them valuable trades. Thaddeus Stevens had one major requirement: Equity for those in attendance. Everyone would eat from the same table and experience the same atmosphere and support regardless of background or status. We continue to fulfill that legacy today.
