A Place For You

Dear Student,

We are pleased to invite you to Shippensburg University’s annual “A Place for You” program to be held on November 13, 2015 from 10:30 am – 3 pm. “A Place for You” is designed to bring high school students of Multicultural backgrounds and their guest on campus to experience SHIP’s educational opportunities, student life, and overall campus community.

During your visit to SHIP 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, staff, support services, etc.) and find out all you need to know about how Shippensburg can be part of your future. There will also be a tour of the campus led by a SHIP student. Your day includes an application workshop to complete your SHIP application with a fee waiver and an understanding of the admissions process. Additional sessions will provide you the opportunity to learn more about financial aid and other important programs. Student and staff panels will be sharing and discussing the academic and campus life experiences here 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 November 4thAll 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. If you want to bring one guest with you, we welcome and encourage a parent or guardian to attend this SHIP experience.     

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.
