4 College Sophomore

Academics: It has many options and the professors are exceptional. There is always room for improvement, such as technology savvy professors.

4 College Student

Academics: The professors that I have had care about the classes they teach and fully explain the class and course materials in the beginning of the semester. The work load so far has only gotten out of hand because of my procrastination. The registration process was simple for me, but I have heard that some people have had difficulties with it.

Academics: Shippensburg has a great education program

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Shippensburg is a great state school. Academics are great and there are a wide variety of majors to choose from. Each student gets assigned an advisor which help them choose Courses and there is also a website called ship underground which provides feedback on professors which help students choose their professors. There is also a tutor section in the library if any students are having trouble with classes

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Shippenburg is really well know for its business department. It is one of 200 school to be part of higher accreditation for buisness. I'm an accounting major it is pretty busy and it a serious major. I suggest Doing your homework and taking notes as much as possible. The more practice is better! Accounting takes a while to stick but you will get the hang of it. I also suggest to pick accounting proffessors wisely. Their are job fairs help by the business school which enables you to get internships or jobs!
