Director's Welcome

Hello students! On behalf of the orientation team, I'd like to wish you good luck this semester. We hope your transition to Shippensburg University has gone well thus far. For those of you who will be joining us in January, plans are underway for our spring orientation program and we will soon open up applications for orientation leader positions. Feel free to call our office or email us if you have any questions.

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

Take advantage of the tutoring available in the learning center. Don't wait until you're really far behind to get help.
