            1956-1958

            My days and educational experience at the old Dayton, Virginia campus of Shenandoah College are an invaluable part of my life. So much of what I am today I owe to those professors at Shenandoah who gave so much of themselves to provide the educational experience and positive maturing influence that started me on this wonderful and successful life journey. As a proud Shenandoah alumnus, I am so happy to see Shenandoah University still carrying forward this same rich and caring heritage! I highly recommend Shenandoah to anyone seeking genuine personal development and life-skills enrichment as well as a great classroom experience in your chosen field of study.

            1981-1985, Bachelor of Arts

            If I could go back in time and attend college all over again I would do it without hesitation. The education I received as well as all of the wonderful opportunities on and off stage at Shenandoah was top notch. I highly recommend Shenandoah to all Theatre and Musical Theatre students. They will be given an education that will greatly assist with reaching their aspirations and career goals.

            1990-1992, Master of Business Administration

            From my very first course, I knew that Shenandoah was a top-notch school and my best choice for their MBA program. The professors were experienced in their fields and extremely knowledgeable. I liked that they designed the courses so we could make the maximum out of our course time and recognized that we also had jobs and family obligations. My MBA has been one of my greatest assets as a professional. I do recommend the school to friends and fellow professionals.
