Success Starts Here

Rachel Stalker

“I knew after meeting such welcoming staff and faculty at Shenandoah during my first few visits, that this was a place I could call home for the next four years. The people here truly care and want you to succeed. I’ve connected with professors I know will encourage, support and guide me...not just for these four years, but for my professional years after college. I’ve had so many diverse experiences and opportunities that I don't think could have happened anywhere else.”
