    Wasn't super happy with my time here. It could have been muxh worse, but I had professors who seemed dismayed to be there, didn't really seem to care, financial aid office was doing the minimum it seemed. But other than that it was pretty great.

    Shepherd University is not only the cheapest university option near me, but also my top choice. The university doesn't have too many majors, and in academics clearly music, nursing and education are top priority, which is unfortunate. Overall I would rate the school as above average, but not extremely exceptional.

    This school has quite the good student to teacher ratio, which makes it easier to get questions answered. The students I've met will attending are pretty friendly, even to someone who is often considered anti-social. This place is can be very inviting to anyone.

    Shepherd is a solid, very budget-friendly school which provides some very good programs (nursing, medstep, art) you will have trouble finding at other places, and definitely not for the same affordable price. The class sizes are small and it is definitely possible to have a relationship with your professor, and the campus is located in the heart of the charming, historical Shepherdstown. Obviously, Shepherd is not the number one school in the nation, but it offers opportunities that, along with hard work, can offer a great education and college experience.

    This college offers a phenomenal learning experience due to it being a small college. It is located next to the Potomac river and there are many extra-curricular activites available. It has a beautiful campus in a polite town with professors that care about your education as much as you do.

    Shepherd University is dull, depressing, and underdeveloped. I often hear students of all majors complaining about the buildings, professors, and classes. The only reason I go there is because I can't afford to go anywhere else--however, I wish I could.

    The people here are great, i have met a life time friend and have had many interactions with nice people. My professors i have had so far, however, are not the best. I wish the professors here would care more about the actual student and education rather than the tests and GPA's.

    Shepherd University is a perfectly diverse community. It's in a great location if you're into small towns and great outdoors. As long as you look for it, opportunity is everywhere.

    The campus is very pretty, especially in the winter when there is lots of snow blanketing the ground. The campus is also very diverse. If you live on campus, you have to watch out for the mold in the dorms.
