4,000 Enrollment Milestone
Fall 2020 enrollment numbers show that Shenandoah has 4,033 degree-seeking students — shattering last year’s fall enrollment number of 3,752 and recording the first time in school history that the university has more than 4,000 degree-seeking students.
Response to COVID-19
Shenandoah was the first private school in Virginia to go online in the spring to 2020. We continued to pivot as we designed our own symptom tracking app, outdoor learning spaces, and SU Pledge. We safely hosted in-person Summer Orientations, Convocation, and Commencement while many other schools were fully online.
ShenFlex is our plan that allows learning to occur both in-person and online, simultaneously, if needed. If it is necessary for a student or an instructor to learn or teach remotely, they can easily do so. ShenFlex allowed the University to stay in-person while many other schools remained online during the COVID pandemic.
South Campus Commons
In an effort to create a safe living environment and make our residence halls and cafeterias less densely populated during the COVID-19 Pandemic, Shenandoah added South Campus Commons in Fall 2020. SCC offers 139 single rooms for our students, as well as a 24/7 fitness room, pool, quarantine areas, and dining hall.
The Village is now complete! The final 2 houses Q & Dove’s Nest II opened in August 2019. 120 upperclassmen students now live in this beautiful, new community.
Bachelor Of Education
Shenandoah is now proud to offer 7 Bachelor Of Education Programs and 7 Special Education Add-On Endorsements—More than any other private university in Virginia!
While most other universities offer a Bachelor of Arts or Science, Shenandoah’s program is now a Bachelor in Education — putting the focus on the expertise being developed and the career field graduates will pursue.

The College Of Arts And Sciences (CAS) Honors Program is a multidisciplinary honors program for students who are curious, creative, self-motivated, and eager to engage in their education and community.
Not only do Honors Program students partake in honors courses that emphasize collaboration, service, and communication, but they will also have the opportunity to develop aspects of the program based on their own interests and goals.
The Pre-Health Program is designed to help guide students develop as competitive applicants to graduate schools that match their desired profession and their academic and pre-professional profile.
The Pre-Health Program provides students with opportunities in three different areas: Curriculum & Coursework, Pre-Health Advising, and Pathways to the Graduate Health Professions.
