What is your overall opinion of this school?

Shawnee State University is an amazing school to attend and very inclusive. We have security always reachable and always patrolling to make sure we stay safe. We have our own drag shows, and many groups to join on campus. There is a place for everyone to feel safe and welcome at Shawnee.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Shawnee State University is a quaint college on the border of Ohio and Kentucky right up next to the Ohio River. It’s the perfect size, because all of your classes are in walking distance. The bad thing about it’s location though, is that it’s in Portsmouth. I would not recommend anyone walk around town alone and to carry pepper spray with them when they leave campus. On a lighter note, the culture has a little bit of everything. There’s different religious groups, every kind of club imaginable, and easy access to social events. Most students are kind and highly sociable, and the professors are fairly accessible on the weekdays. One of the more important things to me is the library. It’s a large and well laid out structure with hundreds of books, but it may be hard to find many things published after 1995.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attended for one semester, and I absolutely loved it. I met amazing people, and it helped me grow as a person. I had to leave due to some unfortunate circumstances but the faculty helped me every step of the way. My dad had two strokes in a week period and my family and I thought he was going to pass away. By the end of the week I was free to leave with everything taken care of. Student or not, Shawnee is a great community full of friends everywhere you look.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion would be that it's a great campus. Since it's relatively small you're able to have more access to your professor and are able to talk one on one. Even though it's small, we still have campus security patrolling around the clock, so it makes me feel safe

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Shawnee State University is a great place to thrive artistically and academically in the major you wish to pursue if you put effort into it. There are areas open to improvement but its a small school with limited distractions and I prefer it that way. So far going there has benefitted me and the price is very affordable in comparison to other colleges.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There's both good and bag at this institution the questions failed to cover. Several LGBTQA+ persons voiced concerns over an improper counselor. Parking and communication between students and guests can be difficult. The professors are not held to a uniform standard of availability so you can just get screwed over. For someone like me, who rather wouldn't be forced into inclusion, that's 40% of the experience. Adverts for the in campus cafeteria and people posting about the same event eight times a day via the campus app. There are also some 'quality -of-life' policies that the university is going through now that might not end well. The good in this place was most of the professors I've had up to this point. Nearly all of them had been amazing, understanding people that not only helped me any chance I needed, but fostered my desire to excel more than any other professors or teachers in the nearly two decades I have lived.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Shawnee always feels safe despite the city that it is located in thanks to the security on campus. The professors that I have had always atleast gives an email address, sometimes personal ones for when their school email doesn't work, for students to use to contact them in case they do not have an office or cannot be reached any other way. Sometimes my professors do not use their blackboard because they cannot access them and so the only way to know your grade is to ask them for it, this also makes it more difficult to keep track of assignments when unable to attend class. Some professors seem to have a preference in assignments being printed and not just turned in digitally and has only stressed the over use of the printers on campus even more, the school is trying to make it so students will have to start paying to print things from the library which will be difficult when the professors that want paper copies are asking students to print out three essays that are each eight pages long for class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really love Shawnee State University. It’s a small, beautiful campus and makes me feel like I’m at a home away from home with the apartment style housing. The academics could be better, but they aren’t terrible. One of the down sides is that Shawnee is located in Portsmouth which is known to have a problem with drugs. On campus is usually fine, but leaving campus can be kind of scary, especially at night. I love the atmosphere of the school. Shawnee is really big on diversity and inclusion and always seems to have multiple events going on throughout the week each week. I can always find something to do and get involved in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is not huge, but it is just big enough to make you feel welcome. Lots of chances to make friends. The only problem i have had with the school is my program. If you are interested in education your better off to go early education or youll be in the boat most of us are which is finding answers for yourself.
