Welcome !

Welcome to Shepherd University--West Virginia's premier public liberal arts university.

I encourage you to take a look inside our website and explore a comprehensive university recognized nationally for excellence and value. Our mascot is a ram and when a ram's with purpose. Strength. Conviction. This is how Shepherd University empowers its students.

Our perfect location amid history, culture, and the great outdoors on the banks of the Potomac River is just an hour from Washington, D.C., and Baltimore. The village of Shepherdstown--adjacent to our campus--offers plenty of student-friendly shops and eateries. Shepherd University's small classes provide personal attention from our dedicated teachers and mentors, who open research, study abroad, internship, and experiential learning opportunities to you. Shepherd offers a close-knit, vibrant campus community that challenges you to stretch yourself in leadership and service, a tradition of championship athletics and intense school spirit...with plenty of space to environment where you can learn to charge like a ram.

While browsing our website is a good way to get started, the best way to explore Shepherd University is to come see us yourself. I invite you to sign up for a campus visitation or an open house, or call us at 800-344-5231 ext. 5212 to arrange your visit.

We are Shepherd University...and we are charging forward!
