Best Thing About Shipley: “When I think of Shipley, I think of variety. There truly is an activity or group for anyone to be a part of, and the way Shipley is set up lends itself to trying new things and expanding your horizons. The best thing I've experienced at Shipley was going to Boston for Harvard Model Congress.”

One Piece of Advice for New Students: “Get involved! Shipley has so much to offer, and you have countless opportunities to make the most of your experience. Join a club you have never tried or run for student government.  Shipley is the perfect environment to take risks and venture outside of your comfort zone.”
