Why did you choose Shippensburg?

I chose Shippensburg because this was the closest school that I applied to, it has a beautiful campus, it was the cheapest school I applied to and also they have many different majors that are fully accredited, just in case I changed my major. Which I did, three times. 

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

Honestly, I would tell students to get involved, learn how to manage school and fun. Also, remember the main reason why you decided to attend college in the first place. Surround yourself with people who have the same goals as you so you all can help one another to the top!
