Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Huge campus that was spread out. Entrance was off the main street shopping/eating area. Enjoyed this nice hilly area to get our steps in and we felt very safe here. Lovely campus that was quiet since semester hadn't started yet but we met amazing young people that were maintaining the campus.

My husband and I both worked at Shepherd, 4 family members, including myself, have graduated from there. The town is a great place - friendly and eclectic. A good place to get an education, go to football games, attend music concerts, eat and shop. Love living in the area.

A bit landlocked with challenging (as in limited) parking for visitors, Shepard University campus is lovely. A rapidly flowing Creek flows through the campus, students are out in abundance, and visitors are made to feel welcome.

The University is located in the heart of the historic town. It is a very nice small school with the old historic building and the new campus connected to the old one down the hill. The old campus is nice with small creek running through and plenty of parking for visitors. It would be more meaningful for students who want to attend school here or people who have connection to the school. Worth your time to walk around since it is part of the town.

We went to a powwow sponsored by university. Was on 3rd floor, elevator is slow. Lots of people visited, had about 30 native dancers. Vendors & food on 1st floor. Very informative, lots of fun!

What can I say: Charming, charming, and more charming. This college has just been updated to University status. The architecture is beautiful and everywhere are flowers and landscaped gardens. With an attendance of only 5,000 students it is an ideal place for a young person who is looking for a smaller college with the feel of a larger university.

The downtown is very pleasant with lots of dining options for students and their parents.

I would highly recommend destination for possible attendance or just enjoying the quiet serene atmosphere.
