Dear Ship Family-

As we set sail on this new uncharted course, we must remember that our Ship is mighty.

Let it be this moment that our Raider Way character shines: that we bring calm through our compassion; inspiration through our perseverance; that we confront obstacles and find opportunities in the challenges; embracing who we are, and aspire to be.

And know that when we are apart, we remain connected:

by our faculty and staff whose lessons, dedication and wisdom will help define our bright future;

by our students who boldly turn to the future, knowing that a lifetime of success awaits;

by our seniors, you have so much to be proud of and we look forward to celebrating you and your accomplishments; and

by our thousands of alumni, who live out the Raider Way every day.

We know that distance will not break our bond… because we are Shippensburg University, and look forward to the time when we will come together again to our home at Ship.
