"I chose Shenandoah mainly for the family feel. As soon as I did my interview here on site, it was evident that the faculty were very close with their students, they knew them all by name. And even the students, my first day of school here, I swear that some of the upperclassmen knew me by name already. There was a lot of one-on-one where you could talk to the faculty and really pick their brains on a topic. It was a great learning atmosphere."
