A Place For You
Greetings from Shippensburg University! As you
are making your decision regarding college, we know how important it is for you
to visit the campus. We would like to offer you more than just a campus visit;
we would like to offer you the college experience!
We are pleased to invite you to Shippensburg
University’s annual “A Place for You”
program to be held on November 7, 2014
from 10:30-3pm. “A Place for You” is designed to bring high school students
of Multicultural backgrounds and
their guest to campus and experience SHIP’s educational opportunities, student
life, and overall campus community.
During your visit to SHIP on that Friday, there
will be a special luncheon program with a Keynote speaker and more. You can speak
with members of the campus community (students, faculty, coaches, support
services staff, and administration) and find out all you need to know on how
Shippensburg can be part of your future. You will also be able to tour the
campus led by a SHIP student. Finally,
you will have the opportunity to attend information workshops regarding the
admission and application process (fee waivers included) and financial aid, as
well as meet with a panel of students and staff members discussing the academic
and campus life at SHIP.
Enclosed is a registration form for this admissions
event. Bus transportation will be provided from the Philadelphia 30th
Street Station for students and families living in that area and surrounding
counties at no cost.
Please return the completed registration form by
mail or preferably fax the registration form to us at (717) 477-4016. Space is
limited and priority will be given to those responding the earliest. The bus fills up very quickly and the deadline
for returned forms is October 29th. All
approved students will be notified by a confirmation letter and /or phone call for
the program. No student will be permitted to attend without confirmation
and the permission signature of a parent or guardian on the registration form. Each student is encouraged to fill out
their own registration form and a returned form by the deadline does not
guarantee a space on the bus.
We cannot wait to see you on our campus! If you
have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 1-800-822-8028.
