Thanks to our generous donors including alumni, parents, faculty, staff, friends and current students, The Shenandoah Fund raised over $1 million last year! Annual gifts to Shenandoah create extraordinary experiences for our students to become global citizens and leaders in their fields. A gift to The Shenandoah Fund of any amount is used immediately to help students pursue their passions. Annual gifts are the most direct way to create a positive impact on the educational experience that touches the entire SU community.
Being able to get so involved with different organizations at Shenandoah has given me leadership experience that will benefit me tremendously in my career as a pediatric nurse.

- Competitive Athletic Programs
- New Facilities, like the Health & Life Sciences Building
- Global Citizen Project (GCP)/ International Opportunities
- Green Spaces

I received a great education. I like the feeling of paying back or even paying it forward!
