History and Traditions
Stephens College was founded in 1833 to meet the educational needs of the young women growing up in the newly settled frontier of the Western United States. Since then, Stephens College has evolved into a nationally known educator of women, recognized for its innovative, experience-based approach to education.

As a historic institution, Stephens College has many unique and cherished traditions that foster a community spirit among students, faculty and alumnae as they enrich the overall college experience.

Perhaps the most meaningful of these traditions is that of the Ten Ideals, which originated in 1921 to represent the overall ideals of Stephens College. Each year, 10 students are selected as personifications of individual Ideals. The Ten Ideals (as revised in 1983) are Respect, Courage, Independence, Support, Sensitivity, Responsibility, Belief, Creativity, Intelligence and Leadership.
