I really enjoy hearing my friends talk about the progress and help they gain while working with the professors at the shepherd and how willing the staff is to help you with all the things you might need to succeed.
Personally, I think the dorms could use a little deep cleaning but overall the good outweighs the bad.
I have had an amazing education experience so far, and cannot wait for the rest of my time here.
Some of the cooking staff do not take their job seriously and let food get burned more than once.
What I like the most about Shepherd University is just how integrated it is into the community. There are so many places you can visit downtown and there is a trail right off the bridge into Maryland giving you many chances to be out in nature. The people at the university are all very welcoming and are easy to get along with. Since this University is a community college, its environment isn't overwhelming since the campus is a decent size and the class sizes typically only range from to 20-30 people making it easier to create connections with others.
For the most part, I have enjoyed my life on campus, however, I do wish there was more variety when it comes to food. In the areas that I have eaten, it's typically a bit more on the range of fast food and there is really only one area that provides more of a healthier palette which is at the Wellness Center.
What I liked about Shepherd University was the history as well as the atmosphere. The classes are smaller so you get more 1 on 1 with the professors and instructors allows you to be able to succeed a lot more. They are very strong on community outreach
I didn't stay on campus by the dorms weren't the best. They've since added new apartments and a new dorm hall that is a state of the art.
