Why Did You Choose Shippensburg?   

I chose Shippensburg because of it was a fresh start, as well as highly recommended by lots of people. Attending Shippensburg has definitely put me to ease with my decision. The campus, faculty, and staff, and all of the students make the experience even better.


What is your favorite thing Ship has to offer?  

One of my favorite things Ship has to ofer is the various classes that you can take. You can pretty much attend any class you can think of and more. For example, the French department offered a practice and theory of French translation course this semester, which is a rare course found among college campuses across the nation. 

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

One piece of advice that I would have for incoming students is to take advantage of all of the opportunities offered across the campus. There are so many programs and clubs to be involved in that will help you network with others and stand out among the crowd.
