"SU is really home! The atmosphere in SU is that of peace and community. I always feel safe and know that I belong here. There is always that feeling of home and togetherness when I walk around campus."
“I absolutely love being a nursing student at Shenandoah. I would describe the Shenandoah atmosphere as a very open and welcoming environment where students are encouraged to think beyond what they can imagine. The professors at Shenandoah care about you and want to help you achieve success. ”
"I loved the Chemistry program! Shenandoah's faculty and staff does an amazing job providing their students with the tools they need to succeed during undergrad, and even after you graduate. The list of resources that are available to students here are unmatched. I couldn't have chosen a better school to prepare me for what lies ahead!"
“What stuck out to me about my major was its diversity. It doesn't stay in one genre or one brand of music technology, rather it takes all disciplines and career lines into consideration. It's a great feeling that I'm not signing my life away to one path of music, and have the diversity to consider and explore any option I please."
"My favorite thing about the education program is how much field work we get to do! Every education course has a field placement component, which can range from observing to teaching lessons or conducting research projects. I've had many opportunities to apply what I learn to real students in real schools, all while making great connections with local teachers and administrators. Because of these practicum placements, I have made amazing colleagues and even lined up a job offer!”
