Shepherd University-Shepherdstown Top Questions

What are the most popular student activities/groups?


I believe the football and cheer leading teams are the most popular activity at Shepherd, because many people come from everywhere to watch us or them compete.


There are parties, there are student activities. They have a pool and a field for just about everything. There's an active student ministry semi-off campus. For the faithfully inclined there's no shortage of support. When there is a football game everyone is on campus, if you're not a sports goer than keep away from the stadium, the dining hall and the parking lots for the day. Students are encouraged to leave their doors open, though some of the dorms are automated and you can't prop them. There's a theater on campus and a small one in town that has some good events. Facebook is your friend here, it's one of the best ways to meet people on campus. Drug use and drinking is there is you want it, but it's very easy to keep away from it if it's not your thing. Independent music is HUGE on campus, and by independent I mean they're making their own and they are pretty good.
