Why Did You Choose Shippensburg?

Ship provides quality education in a secure and beautiful setting at a great price.

What is your favorite thing Ship has to to offer?

Ship staff, faculty, and administration are as invested and interested in my education as I am. It is the people of Ship that make this campus great.

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

Read the syllabus, ask questions, speak up, participate; become your strongest advocate in your education.
