RealWorld's motto "adulthood, simplified" is all about providing resources and advice to succeed in life, especially for college students and recent college graduates.  RealWorld provides a comprehensive introduction to some of the more complicated “real world” decisions and experiences, and covers everything from personal finance and health care to signing a lease and filing income taxes.

The five categories of resources that RealWorld provides insight on are finance, health, living, work-related and government-related.  All five categories provide young adults with tools they need to succeed the the real world.

GEL/Internship in Barcelona
June 6-15, 2020

The GEL Barcelona, Spain trip provides an opportunity for students to experience firsthand business operations in varying international settings.  It can be thought of as a very special "internship/GEL trip."  This project is designed for students to greatly differentiate themselves by putting an international project on their resume along with the experience that comes with it.  

The course includes matching each student with senior corporate executives to work on a specific project of interest to them.  Students will also meet with distinguished professors and visit business organizations and cultural sites.  

The course will look at dynamics of globalization and international diversity allowing students to gain a global perspective on business and economic views, values, and customs.  

For more information, please contact Dave Darsch.

Ask a Pharmacy Alum: David Merola '18

For David Merola ’18 choosing a school was difficult, as each university he interviewed with seemed to have a lot to offer. However, Merola appreciated the authenticity and candor from the faculty and current students at Shenandoah University during his interview, which ultimately led to his decision to attend.

During his time at Shenandoah, Merola continued to see authenticity from the faculty and staff when he found it challenging to decide which career path was right for him, providing him with formative experiences that gave him a sense of direction. They helped him win a grant from the university to fund his own research project investigating genetic differences in subjects with mental illness. He was also encouraged to apply to a summer internship (and later clinical rotations) at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. “Collectively, the support I received from the faculty enabled me to publish several manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals, present over a half-dozen abstracts at national conferences and gain valuable experience in a variety of clinical practice settings,” said Merola. “Despite not being a major research university, Shenandoah was still able to tailor my education to meet my goal of pursuing an academic career.”
