"And some people, dance." Benjamin Button

Why did you choose Shippensburg?  

I constantly saw graduates from my program holding high level positions at universities across the nation. I knew coming here would set a strong foundation for my future success. 

What is your favorite thing Ship has to offer?

The faculty are really invested in my success. I sit down with a faculty member at least once each week to talk about my life, goals, and any challenges I am facing. 

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

Take all the chances given to you. These are four years that can dramatically change your life, but only if you allow it.
