Why did you choose Shippensburg?

Ship feels like home, there is an AACSB accredited business college, and the Honors Program seemed like it would be beneficial.

What is your favorite thing that Ship has to offer?

The faculty are amazing! They are always so willing to help students both in and out of class.

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

If you're not sure what to major in or what activities to get involved with on campus, just follow your heart and do what you love to do!
