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.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Don’t attend Shippensburg University for the education!! Instead join us for the late night french fry runs, our outstanding cheering section at our football games, for local fishing tournaments, for the nearby drag strip on a Friday night. Family cookouts for our local students and buddies or watch the sunrise coming over the country mountainside. Attend Shippensburg University to become friends with everyone on our small town campus! Join me at Shippensburg to make this your future hometown community!

    Ship is great for people that have lived in a small town or enjoy the simplicity of a small town. The size of the school has many positive aspects such as smaller class sizes. Also it is easy to get to know people since it is not a large school.

    Shippensburg is a small school in a rural setting. There is incredibly helpful faculty and students all with the goal of helping those in attendance succeed. While there is not much in town there are plenty of things within driving distance that aren’t too far

    Shippensburg University is a very encouraging and involved university, with many teachers who are both good at teaching in their fields and understanding toward their students, There are so many friendly staff members aside from the teachers, and our campus president is very involved in the school's community. Outside of the classrooms, there are many things to, whether you're interested in clubs or just looking to get rid of some stress through creating things or donating to others, and that many eateries exist to chill and spend flex at.

    The university is amazing. The campus is so small, I can get to my classes in 15 minutes tops. There are also a lot of activities on campus that get you involved in the campus.

    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.
