    Shenandoah University is everything anyone could want in a school. Though it is expensive, every penny is worth it. I have never felt so accepted and happy in my life. I love my school, and anyone looking to go here, would too.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Discouraged by the tuition price, the only reason I haven't signed on as of yet is that we are trying to figure out how to finance my education.

    Depending on your major, it's pretty bangin'. For performing art students Shenandoah will always be the right choice. The list of experienced teachers goes on an on. Science and medical majors are in for something special, too. Brand new facilities and teachers are making Shenandoah much more than a school for the performing arts.

    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.
