    This completely depends on what you make of it. Shenandoah offers so many opportunities for students, both on campus, off, and abroad, that are often free and if not at a discounted price. For example, on some Thursday nights students get a discount on bowling. There are trips that students can take, such as tubing, horse back riding, and hiking that you only have to sign up for. Getting your money's worth also applies to classes. SU is private, so it's tuition is much more than that of a public university. However, if you really invest your time and efforts into the classes, get to know the professors, and build relationships with them, I believe it will pay off in the future. The connections you can make just through one person and that relationship you have are incredibly vast.

    Shenandoah is a great school but it is costly. It does provide free tutoring and MacBook Pros to use to make education process easier while in school. Even if you already have a computer you still pay for the computer given at part of the tuition there is no way around it. Depending on your major the teachers are great as well. Even though it is expensive they do provide opportunities and help to pay for school.

    Shenandoah University is however, a private Division III school and very expensive to go to. Yes, this means no athletic scholarships, BUT this also means that there are plenty of opportunities for grants, academic scholarships, and loans students can receive. There are also opportunities for Work Study where students can work on-campus doing things like swipe cards at the cafeteria for minimum wage, just like a real job. Most of the students at SU are involved in Work Study
