  • What can I say: Charming, charming, and more charming. This college has just been updated to University status. The architecture is beautiful and everywhere are flowers and landscaped gardens. With an...  read more »
  • very quiet as the Spring semester was over, love the small town aura, seems like a cool place to attend college 
  • I stopped by the college to inquire of a certificate. The admissions staff was rather nice and I spoke to one student who said that all of his professors were friendly. Student population is around 40...  read more »
  • The advisors are so unhelpful. I will e-mail/call my advisor (Dr. Burke in the Education department) multiple times and never get a response. I had to register for classes several days later than I was supposed to because my advisor failed to give me the proper information at the proper times. I had to go to the registrar's office and have a lady there advise me instead of my actual advisor. The lady in the registrar's office was very helpful and gave me a lot of information, but still some of the information that she gave me was incorrect. I thought that going to a smaller school would give me more access to my professors, advisors, etc. and that the faculty would be more helpful and caring, but that is definitely not the case here at Shepherd University.
  • Here for the 2016 Appalachian Studies conference. Wonderful facilities, extremely kind and helpful staff, and good signage are making this a wonderful experience!
  • Terrible school. I have had multiple bad experiences here. I attended in the Fall of 2014 for two weeks and decided to leave. First of all, I decided to change my major from Nursing to undecided. My adviser failed to notice that my Chemistry course was only for Nursing majors. AFTER the add/drop date, she told me I could either drop the course or stick with it, but it won't work with any other majors (waste of time). If your child is being recruited by the softball coach, DON'T FALL FOR IT! I know of a few girls including myself who were recruited by Coach Lopez, told we would be on the team, and once we were already enrolled in the school, were told we had to try out and were cut. It has happened to multiple girls. With those two experiences, I decided to just leave. There was no point in me staying with unhelpful academic advisers and embarrassment (they also didn't offer the major I wanted to switch to). It doesn't stop there though! In the Spring of 2015, I applied to two colleges to transfer to. I still had to send in my transcript from Shepherd even though I didn't receive credit. Okay, whatever. I go to request a transcript and I have a hold on my account for EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS! I was there for two weeks and dropped out before the "90% refund" date and they wanted to charge me $7,000 for housing!!! I sent an appeal to Emily Sechler in Residence Life. She never sent me a follow up email saying she would review the appeal. I sent her another email to check up, called her phone and left my name and number, and it finally took my mother threatening with a lawyer to get her to answer me. Luckily, my appeal was approved and they removed my housing fee after three weeks of hassle. Nope, doesn't stop there, either. Once I finally was able to send my transcript in, I did. I sent it in a week ago and the school I applied to still hasn't received it yet. All of this hassle to send in a transcript has set my application back an entire month. Long story short, this school is terribly unorganized and has very rude staff. Please take your money elsewhere.
  • It was a fantastic experience. Graduated a little late but it was worth everything I put into it.
  • I didn't go there but every one get out of the Town 👻👻👻👻💀
