I traveled to Bhutan on the GCP trip! It was really eye-opening to see such an economically under-developed country be so prosperous in its inter-citizen community, and be more advanced than Western culture in teaching that you don't have to be monetarily wealthy to live a happy life."

With such a busy schedule, my professors and advisor have helped me become super organized and develop great time management skills. I have such a close relationship with all of them, the small class sizes make this easy! They realize my potential even when I don't, and they have taken me to multiple conferences in different states, so that I can network with others in the Sport Management field."
Kelani Bailey | Sport Management, ’16
Shenandoah offers me a fantastic opportunity to work with some of the best teachers and musicians in the nation. Because of my time at Shenandoah, I have become exactly who I wanted to be when I first picked up the trumpet 13 years ago. I have traveled the nation performing with different groups and have made extremely important contacts because of the faculty of Shenandoah."

It All Leads Here | Shenandoah Commencement
Dear White Coat, when we first met on the stage of that white coat ceremony, I felt that I had no right to bear such a symbol of honor, of responsibility. When I took an oath to do everything in my power to protect my patients, I still felt a little intimidated and that I may be too small to be the man who's destined to wear such a prestigious coat like you. As the semesters rolled on, putting you on felt less like a burden and more like a symbol of confidence and intellect. I knew this day would come, when we would take our last ride. I'll never forget the lives we changed, the differences we made. Now as you claim your rightful place alongside graduation robes and you stand as a testament of hard work, grit, but most importantly, faith."
