Program Enhancements

While at Shepherd University, IELP students will be able to take advantage of a wide array of programs and services. We are highlighting several below:


IELP students will have additional excursions that will be a mix of culture, learning, and fun. These vary with the seasons and with student interest.During the fall and spring semesters, Shepherd students have the opportunity to visit Baltimore, Washington DC, New York, Philadelphia, and other major points of interest in the region. These trips are available to all students, so going on them is a great way to meet other students and make new friends. There are also trips to special outdoor recreation areas to enjoy kayaking, canoeing, hiking, skiing, climbing, running, bicycling (touring and mountain), and many other sports. West Virginia and the surrounding region is well-known for its mountains, rivers, and natural beauty.
