Why did you choose Shippensburg?

I chose Shippensburg U. because I felt like there was a lot of opportunities for me to succeed and enjoy myself all whiles getting a great education. Plus it's not to far or to close from home so I can be independent but also have my family close by!

What is your favorite thing Ship has to offer?

My favorite thing Ship has to offer is the many job opportunities & wonderful staff. Everything is all close within! Oh! Can't forget STARBUCKS!

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

Time management! One of the most valuable lessons in college. Also, do not wait until the end of the semester to seek your professors help. And make sure to enjoy your college experience as well because it goes by fast.
