Favorite Quote

“A negative mind will never give you a positive life.”

Why did you choose Shippensburg?

I chose Shippensburg for Graduate School because of the amazing experience I had here as an undergraduate student. It was a very welcoming environment that allowed me to feel at home!

What is your favorite thing that Ship has to offer?

My two favorite things that Shippensburg offers are the endless amount of clubs and organizations that students may become involved with and the beautiful campus.

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

From the moment you step on campus, explore all of the possibilities that Shippensburg has to offer and do not be afraid to ask questions because we have all been in your shoes before!
