In the beginning, they schedule your classes for you your first semester. The classes I got scheduled I really wasnt interested in and didnt think I would enjoy but I changed my outlook because I learned that a professor can make it or break it for the class. Most of the classes I didnt think I would like, turned out i did. I have learned alot in just my first semester. The teachers push you to learn alot which isnt always a bad thing, and most of them give you breaks and extra credit!! I also realized that most of...

    Shippensburg is diverse. Shippensburg is a great start for students who like a middle ground enrollment level. Shippensburg is a great place to meet people form new places and even ones you never met back at home.

    Everyone is so nice; they hold doors open for you. The academic programs are somewhat challenging, but totally worth it. Also, the new suite style living is a completely bonus because the college is cheaper, but I have my own bedroom and share a bathroom with only one roommate not the whole hallway.

    Ship is a medium sized campus which allows you to make new friends and see old ones on a daily basis. There are always parties to go to if you are into that, a lot of college students are. Ship has some tough courses that are worth your money in preparing you for a job or grad school.

    A small school that has a good feel of a sense of community. The professors are extremely educated and qualified. Extra-curricular activities are a good asset to the school.

    Shippensburg is an affordable school with much to offer. Their business programs are the soul of the school's education, leaving not as much for the arts. Regardless of this fact, there are many opportunities for meeting new people and doing things on and around campus.

    Shippensburg University provides a rural atmosphere with a studious climate. The size of the university allow for a faculty-to-student interaction not found in higher tier schools, and as such allow for a more organic classroom experience. I value my experience at Shippensburg University.

    Shippensburg University is very home like. Classes are small enough that the teacher knows your name. Mutual respect for everything throughout the campus.

    Shippensburg University offers great opportunities to all of the students and strives to help each student achieve their goals. The campus life is very laid-back and in a rural area of Pennsylvania. I would recommend this college to those who aren't afraid of a challenge and want to succeed in life.
