Shepherd University greets our international students with open arms! Students from all over the world make our campus the thriving place that it is. From our language tables, to our international culture week, to our film nights, we at Shepherd learn from each other. We want you to be a part of that experience!
Because of supporters like the McMillan family of Jefferson County, Shepherd has lots to offer international students. Welcome!
