What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
Defining academic rigor as a way to help students think for themselves, I would rate it very high at Shippensburg. In class, students are offered a plethora or ways to learn and in many classes, students are able to interpret the lessons and lectures for themselves and are given help if need be.
Enna from PA
Really depends on the courses you are taking. Ship has some very difficult science courses that will test your ability but if you take the right professors you can sometimes get off easy in your gen eds.
Josh
The amount of work you need to put into a class highly depends on the professor.
Birdie
As a biology major, my course work is tough as it is. The professors at Shippensburg University challenge their students while still making the course manageable.
Chelsey from Everett, PA
One of the top institutions in the state of Pennsylvania. They offer over 350 course you can choose from within each major. The professors are open and whiling to communicate one on one.
Monae from Bushkill, PA
Shippensburg provides a school environment that pushes their students to reach their potential. The professors are willing to help when a problem arises, but they also expect you to be an adult.
Jordan from Hanover, PA
The classes are as challenging as you choose to make it. Put the effort in and it will not be as difficult.
