Fall Visitation Day – Monday, October 11, 2021
It is essential to find the right fit as you consider your choice of where to pursue your future music studies, and we understand that it is difficult to get a real feel for a place by just viewing it online. If you are currently a high school junior or senior, or a college transfer student, we invite you to the Shepherd University School of Music Fall Visitation Day on Monday, October 11, 2021. On this day, you will attend classes, meet the music faculty and current students, visit with representatives from the Admissions Office, hear ensemble rehearsals and performances, have lunch in the Dining Hall and take a guided campus tour. It will be an opportunity for students to live a “day in the life” of a Shepherd University music student and learn about the audition and application process. Interested parents are also welcome to attend Visitation Day. There is no charge to participate in this event. Please complete the online Visitation Day registration form.
Please note that current Shepherd University policy requires the use of face coverings individuals, regardless of vaccination status, inside campus buildings.
