CELEBRATE SHEPHERD'S 150TH BIRTHDAY!
This term's display, titled "Sesquicentennial Milestones: 1871-2022" is a continued celebration of Shepherd University's one hundred-fiftieth birthday. The display is divided into three sections (Studies, Sports, and Social Activities).
Some items remain from Fall Term, representing the endurance of the academic institution through the years; other items have been swapped out to highlight changes, achievements or interesting facts.
