I enjoyed looking at the beautiful campus and the environment of the students. The academic programs that are located at this school are also ones that will help those undergraduates figuring out their future.

The criminal justice program at Shippensburg is an overall good program. Other courses I believe could use some work. I would not choose this school again for that reason. There are many other schools that have better programs and I believe having a degree from those schools would help me get a job faster after graduation.
