Christopher Littlejohn currently serves as the Non-Traditional Student Organization Vice President and has been involved with the NTSO since September. Christopher is an Information Technology for Business Education major at Shippensburg University. He is a
member of ROTC and is employed by the United States Army. Christopher is also a member of the Student Veteran’s Association and the SU Student Senate.
Before attending Shippensburg University, Christopher worked in retail in Riverside, California. He was a Motor Transport Operator for the Army National Guard, and part of the California Conservation Corps. As he looked into furthering his education, Christopher explored many options in Southern California,
but choose Shippensburg University because he knew many friends who both attended Ship or are SU graduates.
“Although there were many schools to choose from, I felt like none of them would work for me. After a long decision process, I finally decided to apply to Shippensburg University and told myself if I was accepted that I would move back to PA and attend school here,” Christopher said.
Christopher enjoys his role as a Reserve Officer in Training and is excited of the new opportunities ahead. “I felt like I could have a better impact on those around me if I stepped up and became an Army Officer. I decided that I wanted to lead troops and change lives, and going back to school was the first
step in that process,” Christopher said. Joining the ROTC program has given Christopher a tremendous amount of leadership skills that will help him accomplish all of his goals and dreams.
While attending Shippensburg University, Christopher finds the NTSO helpful in getting connected with other adult students on campus and he finds the NTSO lounge a quiet and comfortable place to study and relax. After graduation, Christopher plans on commissioning into the United States Army as
an Active Duty Signal Officer and hopes to be stationed overseas to make a difference in the US Army and the Nation. If you see Christopher on campus, reach out and say hello.
