Admissions / Visit Campus
Shepherds College is located on a beautiful campus in Union Grove, WI. A campus visit is a great way to see and experience first-hand what Shepherds is all about. We are confident you will be impressed by our comfortable surroundings and more important, by the spirit of respect and care that permeates our campus.
