Shepherd University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
It was an "Easy" school to get into, but the classes lacked creativity, and lessons were often lengthy periods of an instructor reading from a slide show. I often felt that the endeavors relating to Therapeutic Recreation that I sought individually were far more beneficial then what was provided/offered from the university.
I attended Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, WV. My major was Sociology, Psychology, and Criminal Justice. Dr. Howard-Bostic was the greatest help with advising me on which classes to take. She want my college experience excellent. Being a black older women going to a mostly white college was not easy.
Always keep yourself informed about your schedule and progress in your major. Do not relay on staff members to watch you. Plus go somewhere and stay on campus. Definitely a different college experience
The 4 years I spent at Shepherd University were the best of my life! Shepherd is a great campus for academics and getting involved with community service!
Shepherd University has very high quality instructors; however, the courses offered are limited. Most graduate programs in the medical field require additional courses not included in the biology curriculum such as anatomy and physiology. Also, many of the courses are only offered one semester and others are offered every few years. If there is a schedule conflict, such limitations are hard to overcome without having to stay longer than the 4 years intended. The instruction is very personalized which makes it much easier to succeed in the major, though, as long as you supply the effort. It is not an easy major.
