All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. - Walt Disney 

Why Did You Choose Shippensburg?  

I chose Shippensburg University because after meeting some of the art professors I realized they truly loved what they were doing and wanted to do whatever they could to help their students be successful throughout our college experience.They also want to prepare them for the jobs that await them once they gets out of college. I felt comfortable knowing that I by choosing Shippensburg I would be getting a good education as well as advice to take with me as I'M applying for jobs. 


What is your favorite thing Ship has to offer? 

Shippensburg has offered many different opportunities such as an internship as well as clubs and organizations that boost my resume and give me experience in the field in which I wish to pursue.  


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

Incoming students should remember that college is different than high school. Remember not get caught up from being away from your parents and hanging out with your friends. I worried about my friends and my social life more than my school work my first semester which resulted in me not getting such good grades as I wanted. College is a place to make memories with friends but also to learn a lot and pass your classes in order to receive your degree.
