Founded in 1871 as the Cumberland Valley State Normal School,
Shippensburg University is a member of Pennsylvania's State System of
Higher Education and school of choice to more than 7,000 students. While
most are Pennsylvania residents, Ship has also attracted students from
15 nations and 20 other states.
Why such global appeal? We’re different from other schools. All
classes are taught by faculty members, not graduate assistants. Our
student-to-faculty ratio is 20 to 1, allowing for personalized
instruction. And many of our undergraduate and graduate programs are
recognized nationally for their excellence. In fact, U.S. News & World Report rated Ship as a top university in the north again.
At Ship, we also nurture more than young minds. We nurture healthy
lifestyles at our fully equipped recreation center, and our on-site
childcare center nurtures children of students and staff with superior
care provided by certified teachers. These are just a few of the many
reasons why students from around the world and prominent faculty are
coming aboard Ship.
