Why did you choose Shippensburg?  

I came to ship because it is a wonderful affordable state school. The campus was amazing the first time i visited.I also wanted to experience what it is to be independent.  

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

These are the best years of your life. You will make friends for life, create memories you will never forget, and it is the beginning of your career goals so make the most of it and never give up.
