Welcome to our dynamic academic community. Shenandoah, a university AND you.

Opportunities Await

Shenandoah is a creatively charged campus where ideas and connections meet cultures and perspectives. Located in Winchester, Va., Shenandoah University is located in close proximity to Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, Md., allowing students to explore diverse metropolitan regions. Students often take advantage of the four-season recreational opportunities of the Shenandoah Valley’s scenic beauty to explore rivers, caves, rural vistas, and hiking and biking trails.

Mission, service, and special international programs expose students to a world of opportunities, allowing them to travel to foreign destinations, make a difference in the lives of others or study abroad. They can also volunteer locally in rewarding community service initiatives.

Join In

Join a campus community that brings high energy to learning and activities on or off campus. With 21 men’s and women’s athletics teams and more than 50 clubs and campus life organizations, students can jump in to an active social life on campus. No matter their interests, students enjoy plenty of opportunities to get involved and make lasting friendships through exciting on- and off-campus activities.

Become immersed in the spirit of sound and experience the excitement of innovative exploration. Participate in 30 music, theatre or dance ensembles through Shenandoah Conservatory or take in one of nearly 300 annual concerts or performances.

Make A Difference

A Shenandoah University education blends the best of the liberal arts with professional studies. Make a difference in business, performing arts, humanities, natural or social sciences or health sciences. Students leave Shenandoah as principled, professional leaders, and their talents and expertise help them improve the human condition wherever they go.

Clinicals and internships give students exciting ways to practice what they’ve learned in professional settings, allowing them to immediately make difference in the lives of others.
