Dear Fellow Ship Raiders,
Hello and Welcome to the 2021-2022 academic year. My name is Riley Brown and I am proud to serve as your Student Government president. To the class of 2025, welcome. We are glad you are joining our Ship Family. To our returning upperclassmen, welcome back to what will be an awesome year!
First year students arrived at Shippensburg University during Welcome Week to start the fall semester. SU provided four days of activities to help first-year students become familiar with campus before the semester started.
After nearly two years the Shippensburg University field hockey team is returning to the field after having their 2020 fall season canceled due to COVID-19. In the 2019 season, the Raiders went 12-6 and finished third in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC.) They ultimately lost to Millersville in the first round of the PSAC tournament.
Horror walks such a thin line between causing genuine fear and being downright comedic and some movies such as “Evil Dead” are both funny while at times scary and unnerving. “The Banana Splits Movie” from 2019 unapologetically is neither scary nor funny.
Lounges furnished with a handful of couches, plexiglass dividers separating the outside world from workers, half-filled classrooms that felt hollow and smiles that could only be seen in the eyes of masked faces. This is what the Shippensburg University campus looked like to keep its faculty, staff and students safe as they returned for the fall 2020 semester.
With graduation quickly approaching, the thought of joining the adult world can be scary for graduating seniors. Whether they are going straight into a full time job, taking a gap year, completing an internship or unsure of what they want to be doing yet, graduation can come with some stress along with an immense amount of joy.
Making friends, finding roommates and growing connections with other students is a major part of your four-year stay at any university. All the great memories and laughs you have with your new friends comes to a close each year as the semester ends and everyone parts ways for the summer.
Boxing history is replete with flamboyant personalities. Champions such as Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson galvanized fans with their blend of skill and showmanship. However, an emerging trend has taken the world of combat sports by storm.
