3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Our dorms are okay. The freshman dorms have no A/C, but have adequate space. They are a bit pricey, but they're very safe and the RA's are all kind and helpful

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Every one is very involved when it comes to student life. There are many student directed events thanks to our A-team. We have welcome week, pb and j days, and lots of movie night activities.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: The amount of diversity is abundant. You encounter all kinds of people on campus, and n one is shunned for their race, religion, or beliefs. It's a very accepting community.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is excellent. There is always an officer on duty and in the security office. They are always reachable by the call boxes scattered across campus. They take drinking, drugs, and violence very seriously. The environment feels very safe and secure.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We have a few good chinese places right around the corner from campus. WE also have a pretty good sub/ pizza place, but for most food options you have to go 20 minutes out to martinsburg

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have not searched for off campus living, but there are not alot to choice from besides two different places.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It is extremely difficult to get a scholarship through the school which is why im on outside websites.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Its not WVU but it can be fun if you know the right people

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health center is very convenient, for flu, cold, and asthma related issues. They also help with strains, sprains, and birth control. Our campus police ive only known to nust parties and parking tickets, but i do not feel unsafe on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: West Virginia weather is unpredictable. one day its raining, the next its freezing, the next your ready to wear some shorts. Campus is always quieter during rain or cold days but thats to be expected on any campus.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not a part of greek life so i can not speak on how great or bad it is. TKE an Phi Kappa throw nice parties though.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I love my school athletics! WE are a D2 school and we play to win. Our football team is amazing!

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Shepherd does not accept drug use on campus, of course. I have never heard of any heavy drug users on campus though. Ive also never heard of any drug overdose or anything

3 College Sophomore

Computers: the computers are there for when you need them. WE have a few macs in the library otherwise windows everywhere, but they are dependable

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I love that my program is small. My advisor's and professors all know me by name and can work personally with me.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: There are horrible professors, but there are professors that will change your life. The curriculum depends on what program you're in. The engineering department is horrible, while the business and art departments are fantastic. Registration is simple. The workload depends on your department. If you're an accounting major, don't plan on having any free time.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The nightlife is decent. It's a small town, so there are only a few bars.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The healthy center is nice. They are always there if you need them. There are multiple reports of sexual assault each year, and that is unacceptable.

3 College Sophomore

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I did not enjoy my experience. I felt like I had no privacy, and I didn't have much in common with my floor mates. The rooms were small, and most of the halls did not have air conditioning.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Shepherdstown has a wonderful variety of restaurants. I know most of the workers, and they're all kind people. The quality is top notch, but it does get expensive. There is a serious lack of student discounts.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Not really a club scene. Just frats

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Enjoy West Virginia. It's beautiful

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Small town. But nice local feel
