Student Ratings

Overall Rating

I think Shippensburg University, overall, was a very good school. I am very interested in this school and hope to attend Fall 2013. The campus was very nice and everyone was welcoming. The tour guides were extremely helpful and answered all of my questions about the campus and academics. I am interested in going into Nursing and I think the teachers seemed really helpful. I think the campus will be easy to get around and its a very nice area. I'm interested in many sports and I feel like Shippensburg has some good teams I would like to be apart of, as well as different clubs. The housing was very nice and clean and I could see myself staying at Shippensburg. I am looking forward to going to Shippensburg University so I am hoping to be accepted and go there Fall 2013.
