What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
They have an awesome sight called Ship Underground that gives you a heads up on profs. It tells you how difficult they are, what they teach, and the average course load if you have them. It also provides student's oppinions and gives each teacher an overall rank. You can't choose your fall semester classes for your freshman year but definately look into it anyway, especially for your spring semester. It lets you know what your in for your first semester and helps you decide which teacher you want in the semesters that follow.
Ashlie from Waynesboro, PA
If you're interested in Shippensburg University, I would suggest to go on their main site and have a look at their list of majors--especially if you're undecided. Take a campus tour if you have not been on a college campus before. Check for visiting opportunities as well.
Enna from PA
Make sure you go to the school that has your top two or three majors in it so that if you want to change major you can do so and not transfer schools.
Josh
I would recommend this school especially for students wishing to get a degree in business, and dual degrees.
Birdie
Work hard and study. You aren't in high school anymore and it only gets harder. Make sure to take time to have a social life while keeping your academic work as your main priority.
Chelsey from Everett, PA
Maintain focus on your studies and you will get to enjoy the fullness of what Shippensburg has to offer. The events, activities around campus, recreational competitions, concerts, festivals, easy job search, resume programs etc. I mean the list goes on. Something you do not want to miss out on.
Monae from Bushkill, PA
Students should learn to value their time and spend it wisely. It takes a little bit of adjusting at first, but it is very important to make sure that you enjoy every second you have in school while managing your time wisely.
Jordan from Hanover, PA
Great school, you should really check it out!
Rachel from Johnstown, PA
Do not base what classes you want to take on what others say about the class. If it is something that interests you then take it. Everyone has different opinions about the professors and difficulty of the courses. Take the course and decide for yourself.
Elizabeth from Littlestown, PA
Don't mess around because you think it's going to be easy. AP classes in high school most likely didn't do college justice; mine sure didn't. Be sensible, if not, once mid-terms and finals come around, you're gonna be screwed. Take good notes and pay attention. Don't skip your classes because you're tired, you'll regret it later. I currently am in a class where we have a quiz each day, and those points add up! If you do need to miss a class, make sure you have a friend in the class to let you know what happened, and if you have a good excuse (like if you're sick) e-mail your teacher and they will excuse your absence, and won't take points off for participation or presence. Don't go out and party often. Tons of my friends have gotten caught and gotten underages. Be smart, people, cops are watching. Schedule your classes carefully, if you don't like getting up at 8am, don't schedule an 8am class. You'll end up not wanting to go. Your advisors might tell you at orientation that early morning classes are the smallest, total liars. Once they tell you all that, everyone wants an early class, which means it's going to be quite a big class.
