The place to play.
By its very nature, athletics is goal-oriented. Here at Stevenson University our goal is to win national championships. That's why we build first-class facilities, hire experienced coaches, and compete in the nation's best NCAA Division III conferences. The men's lacrosse team won the NCAA Division III national championship in 2013 while the women's lacrosse team earned their highest national ranking in the program's history. Following the success of these programs, our athletic department strives to be among the best in Division III.
Our Department of Athletics supports the institutional mission by providing a distinctive, career-focused, and personalized environment for all Stevenson students. Challenging academic courses are complemented by an invitation to explore the world outside of the classroom, in the community as well as on the field of athletic competition.
The Stevenson University Marching Band's debut in 2012 bolstered the vibrant game day experience, bringing a rush of school pride across campus. Students head-to-toe green and white, some even painted on, cheer on the Mustangs and sing the fight song.
We will soon offer additional club teams to complement the varsity programs and intramural leagues. All of this and more make Stevenson University the place to pursue both athletic and academic excellence.
Our athletic facilities are among the best in Division III. In 2006, we acquired the former headquarters and practice facility of the Baltimore Ravens. The grounds are now home to Mustang Stadium, a 3,500-seat facility for the football, men's and women's soccer, field hockey and men's and women's lacrosse teams, and Owings Mills Gymnasium, a 38,000 square foot complex for the men's and women's basketball, and men's and women's volleyball teams. Caves Sports and Wellness Center is the primary training facility for more than 800 Mustang student-athletes.
The Stevenson University Marching Band is a contemporary style university marching band. Membership is open to all SU students, including non-music majors. Led by Director of Bands Mark Lortz, the band plays at events throughout the academic year, from football games to the University's Convocation to pep rallies. To support the students for enhancing Mustang school spirit, all band members receive a $500 participation grant for their dedication during the fall semester.
Beyond the varsity sports, we invite students with an itch for competition to participate in club or intramural sports. Club sports teams include baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's lacrosse, softball, and women's volleyball. Club teams practice throughout the week and compete against teams from other universities on weekends. Intramural leagues pit Stevenson students against one another in flag football and basketball as athletes battle for campus bragging rights.
In addition to organized competition, Campus Recreation presents fitness and workout programming throughout the year to support students to keep fit while at school.
A Proud Tradition
In 2014, Stevenson inducted its first Hall of Fame class, celebrating a collection of individuals and teams that embody the commitment to excellence for which Mustang Athletics have demonstrated throughout its history.
Stevenson has built on a proud tradition of gifted student-athletes to reach its status as a national leader in NCAA Division III athletics. Visitors interested in learning more about the Hall of Fame can visit the displays and trophy cases in the lobby of the Owings Mills Gymnasium.
