Shenandoah University Reviews
I like that Shenandoah University has a beautiful campus and is in a very safe area in Winchester, Virginia. I like that the Shenandoah River is nearby and Abraham's creek flows right through campus. I am a part of the conservatory at Shenandoah University and I admire all the incredibly talented artists who attend this school to pursue their passion in the fine arts. I believe we have strong academics and through the extra domain of general education we are encouraged to become well-rounded, knowledgeable learners. I also love that Shenandoah University has Division 3 athletics. The sports are competitive but no where near as much as a Division 1 school. The school is very small and we are lucky to have athletics at all! I would like to see better facilities especially for the dance students. I am a dancer myself and I often get shin splints from unsprung floors. Also, with the amount of choreographing/composition we have to do, we should have facilities open to us at all times.
Shenandoah was a wonderful school to visit! Their conservatory program looked very competitive and prestigious, which is exactly what I am looking for! Their dorms were fabulous and so were their facilities. The students I encountered on campus were fantastic to meet and I cannot wait to go back again in February for my Conservatory audition!
I really enjoy my time at Shenandoah University. I not only graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications, but I also have chosen to pursue my graduate degree. The staff and faculty you interact with really do care about your well being and education. You can also always meet with your professor one on one and they will know who you are. I always stay in touch with former professors and they love to hear from me. It's a great family where you will feel welcome and it'll always outweigh the bad!
