    I honestly love it here. The people are so friendly, teachers and students included. I've made tons of new friends and it's been so easy making them. I live in a dorm so I'm constantly around other students and it's just made life here that much more fun. We have all kinds of activities in our hall and I couldn't imagine commuting, it would have been a completely different experience. I've heard tons of complaints from commuters saying that they're not meeting anyone or making any friends. Duh! It's because they're not living on campus! Coming just for classes isn't going to help you meet people. The activities on campus are so fun, like the Mr. Shippensburg Pageant. It was so much fun and extremely hilarious. Watching the guys up on stage. YUM. I also went on a trip to Kings Dominion with a couple of my friends. The trip was done by the university, so it was safe, and we went for the halloween day and the park had all kinds of scary rides and attractions. Also, it was only $20 for the whole trip, because it was done by the school in a group! Cha-ching!

    I love being at Shippensburg. The classes are small enough for you to be able to seek help from the professor. Everyone is friendly to everyone and very close. Even the workers at the dining halls will probably learn your name. I was debating on going to Penn State and here and I am now glad I choose Shippensburg.

    When is there not anything to do on campus? Pretty much there are activities to do everyday of the week. The APB committee does a wonderful job of planning events. We have movie nights in the theater, a variety of socials, and sports events. There is never a dull moment at Ship unless you are just being lazy.

    Ship is known for being a party school, although there is a lot to do on campus other than partying as well. They almost always have activities going on, movies playing, or even comedians performing.
