Why Did You Choose Shippensburg?  

Great learning environment at Shippensburg University attracted me to transfer from the University in Korea. Usually class sizes are small, so this enables students to interact with professor efficiently.  Also, professors are fully prepared in class and help students to success their academic achievements by any means.  

What is your favorite thing Ship has to offer? 

I like how Shippensburg University flourishes music. Music department offers not only theory-oriented but also practice-oriented classes.  To me, I have longed to enhance and demonstrate my piano skills.  Jazz Ensemble and Concert Band classes—practice-centered classes, we have rehearsals in class periods, so students are expected to master the piece by themselves—helped me to contribute my ability to Shippensburg University.  I cannot only pursue self-development but also return my favor to the University with fellow students. 

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

Always be open to everything and find your potential.  The more you strive to develop your professionalism, the more you will have amazing experiences. Four years of college pass in a flash!
