Get to know the president

Interview with Charles Patterson

Shippensburg University is going through a very transitional time. The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) is in the middle of redesign, the COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged the world and the U.S. has been going through social and political upheaval over the last few years.  Despite this, the world still turns, and the SU community is faced with another change. In March 2021, Laurie Carter, then SU President, announced she would be leaving the university in the summer. Charles Patterson, then president of Mansfield University, would take her place as the interim president while the search for a new president began.

Review: Slime Rancher brings players nostalgia with recent launch on Nintendo Switch

Slime Rancher is an indie farming game developed by Monomi Park and released early in January 2016. Players assume the roll of Beatrix LeBeau, a rancher who moves to the planet known as the “Far Far Range.” The player is allowed to farm and explore the open world at their own pace. The game's main objective is to collect “plorts,” a farmable resource compiled from the game's main cattle: “slimes” a gelatinous creatures that come in many shapes and sizes. The player sells the plorts and gains money for better gear to further explore the world.

That's What it's All About: A Conversation about racism

On August 27th while I waited for the SGA retreat in the lounge outside the MPR, I sat down at a table. At a table over sat another student. He was on the phone with his aunt, begging her to come pick him up. Alas, she wasn’t able to make it to Ship until 10 pm, so he told her that he’d take the bus to Harrisburg and get a train back to Philly from there. This was at 3p.m.

Opinion Commentary: Phones: our stressful hang-up

Your World Today Commentary

Many of us over the last year and a half, relied on food delivery, no-contact pickup and fast food. While customers began to feel more comfortable eating out as COVID-19 restrictions loosened, restaurants found themselves without enough staff to accommodate the long-awaited rush back to the normality of pre-pandemic days.
