Faculty Chair's Welcome

Welcome to Shepard Residential College. We are a multi-thematic college and, as such, we embrace many different interests. In fact, the best word to describe us is diverse—and at Shepard, we mean this is every sense of the word. Diverse backgrounds, diverse interests, diverse views, diverse passions and hobbies—you will find them all at Shepard.

The diverse interests and backgrounds make for lively discussions in our cozy home at the South Mid Quads. In addition to having conversations on a range of topics (academic and otherwise), students gather to watch films and television in our lounge, or to play ping-pong, XBox, or one of the many board games that comprise Shepard's collection. Whatever your interests and hobbies, you will find a home at Shepard.

Shepard has a dedicated dining room within the larger Allison Hall Dining Room. Here you will find some of our many faculty Fellows enjoying lunch or dinner with the students. Our Fellows come from a variety of disciplines, ranging from engineering to economics, from psychology to chemistry. The Fellows’ interests complement the diverse interests of the students.

We invite you to visit and to consider joining our community of Sheep!
