About Shepherd University

Shepherd. Unexpected.

Picture an active, outspoken community of individuals from all backgrounds.  Focus more closely and you’ll see budding financiers and FBI agents.  Social workers and science teachers in the making.  Future museum curators and concert musicians.  You’ll also see that nearly everyone engages in a sport or recreational activity.

Now imagine the variety of student organizations and athletic activies in a community like that.  And you just might start to get an idea of why as a Shepherd student you should expect more. 

At this premier public liberal arts university you’ll come to expect the attention of a small liberal arts college and the resources and programs of a full-scale university at the cost of an affordable public education.  At Shepherd University, you’ll know all of your professors, often working side by side with them on research and professional activities.  With an average class size of 20-25 students, there’ll be plenty of discussion, presentations, and group projects. 

Imagine living on a beautiful, 323-acre campus perched high above the Potomac River, nestled amid the history and culture of Shepherdstown, West Virginia…only about an hour’s drive from Washington, D.C., and Baltimore.  Step right out your door for hiking, fishing, and kayaking, as well as arts festivals, entertainment, and Civil War sites.  Just beyond are the resources of four states and two major cities.
