Students share pros and cons of new Residence Halls

Shippensburg University recently completed the first phase of a three-phase housing project. In January, students moved into the new buildings — Presidents Hall, McClean Hall II and Seavers Hall.

One of the amenities that are different is there are laundry rooms on each floor, rather than just one room in the basement.
