Why did you choose Shippensburg?  

I love the family atmosphere that you get from the facility, staff and students at Shippensburg.

What is your favorite thing Ship has to offer?

The wide range of extracurricular activities that students can get involved in is astounding. There is something for everyone.

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

Get involved with an extracurricular activity early on. It will help root you into the University. Besides, it looks great on a resume.
