4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For the most part all of my professors have been helpful and caring. Ive had very few who were not.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have campus police, which i believe play a big role in myself and my fellow students feeling safe.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, but i have been in the dorms before. The dorms are average.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not in a fraternity or sorority, therefore I am not able to speak on their activities.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not a huge sports fan, therefore I do not tend to keep up with the athletics at my school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall college experience so far has been great. I love how fun, friendly and free spirited evey person that ive met has been. Shepherdstown is such a great location for the University, although it is a small town I couldnt imagine a better place to be furthering my education. Shepherd University is great!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is something everyone should experience. You will be around people who will become your long life friends and also do things around the campus to bring everyone together!

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at my school are great! We are known for having great athletics and the whole school shows a lot of school spirit for them too.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Shepherd University is a great school to attend because it's a small school so your professors will actually know who you are and are willing to help you if you need help or simple have a problem

Greek Life: I have never been a part of Greek Life at Shepherd, but I did consider joining the sorority of Tri-Sigma. Shepherd's Greek Life has absolutely no hazing, and are very involved in volunteer and community service. I would love to be a member of a sorority, but I work two jobs, including being a Shepherd University history tutor, and couldn't find the time. As I adjust into being a college student, I'd probably reconsider joining a society and being a part of a bigger cause.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I work for a newspaper as a sports stringer. I report on a lot of sports at Shepherd University. All of the coaches and staff members, as well as the players, are extremely friendly and spirited. There always a lot of fans filling the stands and cheering on our Rams. I have written articles for soccer, basketball, lacrosse, softball and baseball. Through my experience covering these games have made me more appreciative of sports, and I am proud to be a Shepherd Ram.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Honestly, I love Shepherd University. I am a college sophomore as of the fall of 2016, and I have had the experience of a life time already. My school is small and easy to get around, yet comfortable and safe. I would never choose a different university to attend, because the professors are genuinely caring and effective at teaching the material. I have formed close knit bonds with most of professors, and the advisors have helped me get thirteen credits ahead of my peers as a sophomore, so I can graduate early. I changed my major from psychology to political science, and I have received emails about internships, scholarships, financial aid and other opportunities involved with my newly selected major. Many people always assume that West Virginia University is the best school in West Virginia, but I'd have to disagree because my school is the perfect choice for me. I'll stand by my opinion always as a Shepherd Ram!

Campus Housing: I lived on campus for one year and it was perfectly fine. Never had any problems while living in Shaw Hall. We had heat and air conditioning, carpet, large closet, and the bathrooms were very spacious and clean.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are like friends who get to know and understand you as an individual. I am an art student and while the art professors are the most amazing I have ever had, my general studies professors have been just as helpful. There is a lot of community involvement at Shepherd and everyone is like a family; students, faculty and staff, and residents.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Our football team is amazing and everyone gets involved in the games

Health & Safety: Personally I do not agree with the methods that Shepherd uses to handle sexual assault cases, people can easily be falsely accused of sexual assault and people have gotten away with sexual assault. Shepherd needs to find a new way to conduct these cases and always have a Title IX coordinator on staff. Although the police on campus do seem to do their jobs well.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Small class sizes are wonderful, it allows professors to know the students personally. The art buildings are new and have great equipment.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Shepherd offers a BFA for art students, which is a Bachelor of Fine Art, which are more highly regarded in the art world.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is good at Shepherd, although freshman dorms have no A/C but most students make do with fans. Other housing on campus is great the apartments are spacious and comfortable as are the suites.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Wellness center is great for anyone to go to, it is open to the community as well.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Shepherd is a small school, the art program has a very close group of students where most people know each other.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus crime happens not to often, but if they find out they make sure to email all students. Campus police is wonderful and friendly, and will protect us as much as they can. I feel pretty in day time but night time I wouldn't want to walk alone on campus, good thing I don't have to!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most professors are very helpful, great class sizes, and styles

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really much towards Greek Life
