| If you are an immigrant or international student, stay away from this university and try some other college/university in a metropolitan city where generally people & faculty is open to accept immigrants respectfully. |

Seriously consider going somewhere else. This univ. has really gone down recently. There are serious admin. problems. They drop programs and change degree requirements at any time (see other reviews on this site). They changed my degree, but I just managed to get through in time. A friend of mine was not so fortunate (he has 1/2 a degree, and no prospects to finish). There are some good professors in performance and theory, but like most colleges, the majority of the professors haven't accomplished anything (worthwhile) in the last 20 years. It's usually the adjuncts who keep up their skills and knowledge. |
The campus is in a beautiful area of Va, and it's easy to work with the business office. But the area is about as dull and culturally backward as can be. There is absolutely nothing to do. If you like fun, festivals, and concerts, this is NOT the place for you.
Good Luck and study hard.

What is in the catalog does not matter. They can change requirements and make up whatever they want to at any time. You can go to the admin. and complain, but they just cover each other. |
The area is excruciatingly dull. There is absolutely nothing to do unless you want to go to a Pancake Breakfast or a farm market.
This area is also culturally dead. All the cultural activities revolve around the campus. They do present some good artists, but most of the performances are by students.
There are two museums. One is mostly about apple growing and the other is some kind of remodeled warehouse featuring the works of unknown artists.
On the positive:
It is a beautiful campus that is well maintained.

| The problem with Shenandoah University's pharmacy school is that the administration is overly chummy with the faculty members, so that when a dispute occurs (i.e. grading errors, inappropriate behaviors or comments) they are quick to turn a blind eye. This problem may be inherent to small private colleges in general, but it seems excessively bad here due to good ole' boy politics and a lack of accountability demonstrated by at least one key administrator. Here, you will find that the culture he and others have created is not conducive to the fostering of intellectual/professional growth, but instead promotes the false ideal that "itâ€™s not WHAT you know, but WHO you know." My advice is that if you get accepted to another school, do not be taken in by SU's charm and Virginia's countryside. Choose the other program if the integrity of your education is most important to you. |
