4 College Freshman

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.

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.

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.

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

Campus Housing: When coming to live on campus I thought it would be much better than the reality of it. The rooms are in awful condition. Tight spacing, limited closet space, dirty carpet and walls, lighting, and how thin the walls are. For the place I am living in I believe the price is much too high. The bathrooms are also a major issue. They reek and are always dirty. The social atmosphere is okay, I'm almost never in my hall during the day so I don't interact with a lot of people in the building.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: As a member of Greek Life I can say that I think it is has been very beneficial for me. Greek life has given my many opportunities that have helped me grow as an individual. I have learned many aspects that will greatly assist me in my future. The attitude of non-Greeks to Greeks is mostly negative. The Greeks on campus are viewed as snobby, stuck up and only joining to have friends, but these are also thoughts that went through my mind before I joined greek life. These people will never know until they get the actual experience. Greek Housing is not allowed here.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Coming in I was very excited, but now some of that excitement has died down. I am realizing that my program of study has an enormous workload, that almost sounds impossible. The social aspect of the school is nice. The programs that are put on are always a nice way to meet new people and relax from stress.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy my time here. Classes aren't huge, so I feel I am not lost among other students and just a number. My professors are wonderful and so understanding about how real life can sometimes get in the way of school. My teachers have all really enjoyed what they are teaching and made me feel the love they express for the topic at hand.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are job fairs and the school puts out information about possible internships or jobs. My major requires an internship so I will have one no matter what, which could lead to job opportunities.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe most of the time on campus. There isn't usually a time I have felt in danger or unsafe. I do disagree with certain practices. I understand that if someone is being accused of sexual harassment, that they should be able to look into it without the victim's name being given away, right away. If you live in the same dorm with this person it could cause them to strike out at you or make things worse. There isn't any protection for the victim.
