I really love Shippensburg University! With the smaller class sizes I really get to know my professors, which you normally are not able to do at a bigger university. Also, everyone is so friendly and people really go out of there way to make you feel welcomed. Overall I have really loved Shippensburg and I can not wait to spend another two more years at the amazing university!
I absolutely LOVE Shippensburg University. The campus is beautiful and everyone you meet always has a smile on their face. Of course the cow smell can be annoying at times, but I would not trade it for the world. Of course it is college, so the classes are hard work but you should be working hard anyway. All of my professors so far have been easy to talk to and they are very flexible with schedules. And don't forget about the Starbucks on campus! It's my home away from home!
