Favorite Quote

Beginnings are usually scary, endings are usually sad, but it is everything that is in between that makes it all worth living. 

Why did you choose Shippensburg?

I chose Shippensburg because of its close community feel and the dedication of the professors 

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

Get involved in activities that make you happy and that you can enjoy with friends but make sure to take time to study. Your friends may be why you want to stay in Ship but your grades will help keep you here.
