Alumni are able to connect with current students’ excitement and school spirit, and some students are able to showcase their love for Shippensburg in a larger way. The Homecoming Royalty title is both an honor and a staple for the season, and for these students, a place on the Homecoming Court is much more than just a nomination.

Get to know the president

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.
