We asked: What is the biggest lesson you have learned at college?


College is the time to make big mistakes, take big leaps and find out who you are. It can be challenging to navigate. That is why these current Raiders and alumni chose to share the biggest lessons they’ve learned here at Shippensburg University. 

Giovani Onativia - Alumnus

“If you have the opportunity to take an internship, take it. The experience you’ll get is a great resume builder and introduces you to the field you’re interested in.”

Ashley Mendoza - Sophomore

“Don’t procrastinate, if you get an assignment given to you at  a certain date, get started as soon as possible so you stay on track.”

Cheick Diaoune - Sophomore 

“The biggest lesson I’ve learned in college is to make responsible choices. A lot of stuff can happen that is out of your control so you’ve just got to make responsible decisions.”

Emily Erby - Senior 

“Take the plunge and go toward what you’re actually passionate about instead of trying to do something that is just not for you.” 

Leara Swartz - Junior 

“Time management is more important than you would think. Organizing and prioritizing is your best friend in the long run.”
