Welcome to Shepherd University's Enrollment Management Newsletter! Please take a look inside the newsletter and explore the multitude of informative details that will keep your fingers on the pulse of institutional enrollment activities.

Since our last edition, Shepherd University has experienced continued success, yielding another record breaking enrollment year.

With a decreasing market share available to the institution, it is important that we all share in the responsibility of enrollment. It is this unique collaboration that I believe will continue to position Shepherd in becoming the premier liberal arts institution in the region!

Shepherd is located perfectly amid history, culture, and the great outdoors and is just an hour away from Washington, D.C., and Baltimore. We offer small classes, personal attention, and more than 75 academic programs. Shepherd's dedicated teachers and mentors open the world of research, study abroad, internships, and independent project opportunities to students. Shepherd University is a close-knit, comfortable community that challenges the student in leadership and service. We have a tradition of championship athletics and intense school spirit. Shepherd University offers unexpected opportunities and unlimited possibilities.

Thank you for making Shepherd University a nationally recognized institution for excellence and value!

Please note there have been two additional sections added to the newsletter: Retention and Enrollment Management Committee. It is our hope that the addition of these two sections will help provide the campus and its constituents with a more comprehensive understanding of Enrollment Management activities.
