Why Did You Choose Shippensburg?  

  It was the perfect distance, and it had an amazing education program. 

What is your favorite thing Ship has to offer? 

 The tight-knit family is the best thing that Ship has to offer. Everyone becomes so close and becomes an actual family that you won't get anywhere else! 

If you could give any one piece of advice to incoming students, what would it be? 

 Take it seriously and always put your school work first. You need to find that balance and sometimes people have to find it that hard way, but learn from it and adjust it.
