Director's Welcome

Hello students! With midterms and class scheduling on the horizon, we've already begun our planning process to meet our newest prospective students. With our Summer 2014 Orientation Team recently selected, we're excited about the opportunity to get to know a new class of students. That being said, please take the time to review the summer schedule and steps to take in order to prepare yourself for Orientation. Feel free to call our office or email us if you have any questions.

Why Did You Choose Shippensburg?  

   I chose to return to Shippensburg because I missed the 1-on-1 attention from faculty. 

What is your favorite thing Ship has to offer? 

 An amazing rural  setting with great people and greater views!  

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

Get involved! I know that is very general and cliche, but I honestly didn't start enjoying school until I joined different organizations.
