What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
Shippensburg University is an excellent state school with an even better faculty board. It is a semi-large campus with a lot to do. If you attend Ship and work hard alongside your professors, you will make it far in life!
Jonathan from Avoca, PA
Shippensburg is a fairly conservative area and the University follows suit. However, while some people are close minded that is something that will be found everywhere and it is essential to be able to relate and listen to everyone's opinions. The biggest aspect that stands out about Shippensburg University is how nice and caring everyone is towards each other despite opinions.
