Success Stories


Bernard J. Dunn School of Pharmacy

“My time at Shenandoah showed me how to be a successful student-athlete while participating in organizations that I strongly believe in. Translating to the real world, my job requires me to multi task, while also being a quick thinker and worker, but still taking time to show compassion towards my patients and listen to and address their concerns. I feel that SU gave me the opportunity to learn these qualities and then apply these skills directly to my career.” – Alexis Hargbol, University Studies & Pharmacy Read More
