To Everyone at Shenandoah University,

On behalf of First Star Greater Washington Academy, I want to thank you for the warm welcome during our visit on Tuesday November 17th where we were treated to private meetings with Admissions counselors, Financial Aid advisors, treated a private tour of the University and a wonderful lunch in the café. Each member of the SU staff were welcoming and enthusiastic about the University and what is has to offer. Our Youth was blown away by the school’s unexpected size, its beauty, and the character of individuals who attend. I was impressed by the supports offered to the students, but even more, by the individual care that is given to the development of the students as they transition from high school through the early years of college. Allowing each youth to explore interests and the unknown while working with them on a personal level to choose classes and a major Also, the variety in courses available, the technology given to each student, study abroad options and tutoring for all courses offered at the University, were impressive. I personally walked away from the visit with a new knowledge of a fabulous school tucked away in Winchester, VA and thinking about some of the youth in our program who could be great fits. Thank you all for your time and support to make our visit such a wonderful experience and please keep in touch.

With sincerity and warmth,

Brian Ritchey
