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?

SU has character and personality unlike any other institution I have attended and, it is rich in human diversity, academic challenge, and fun. I have never regretted my choice to attend SU.

What is your favorite thing that Ship has to offer?

SU Staff, faculty, and administration are as invested and interested and supportive in my education as I am.

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

SU has so many resources to encourage, enable, and inform our education and personal growth. If ever you feel overwhelmed, let someone know, we will be happy to help you find what SU has to offer each of us.
