The Shippensburg university department of athletics named senior Katie Spratford and junior Pat Kregeloh as its 2012-2013 student athletes of the year.
Spratford is an exercise science major with a 3.57 cumulative grade point average. She has twice earned USTFCCCA All-Academic honors this school year, as part of both the cross country and outdoor track & field squads.
An All-American fourth-place finish in the 5,000-meters as the top-seeded 5K runner at this winter’s NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships capped off a successful indoor track season for Spratford. She was named the PSAC Indoor Championships Track MVP, after winning the mile and 3,000-meters and running the anchor leg of the victorious distance-medley relay squad. For her efforts, she was named both the PSAC Women’s Indoor Track Athlete of the Year as well as the USTFCCCA Atlantic Region Women’s Indoor Track Athlete of the Year.
Kregeloh is also an exercise science major with a 3.61 cumulative grade point average.
His hard-work and success in the classroom has resulted in a Board of Governors’ scholarship.
On the baseball diamond Kregeloh is a three-year starter, and was named All-PSAC East last season for the second time in his career, he is also a candidate for the Tino Martinez division two player of the year award.
Congratulations to both Katie and Pat on their accomplishments
The Shippensburg University track & field teams will host the only home meet of the 2013 outdoor season this Saturday at Seth Grove Stadium when it conducts the Ninth Annual Paul Kaiser Classic. The men’s hammer throw will kick off the first event at 8:30 a.m. and a combined ten thousand meter run gets the track competition going at 10 a.m.
Shippensburg welcomes squads from IUP, California (Pa.), Kutztown, Millersville, Clarion, UPJ, Stevenson, Hood, Frostburg State, York, Gallaudet, Lebanon Valley, Messiah, Elizabethtown, Dickinson, Gettysburg, Johns Hopkins, Franklin & Marshall, Alvernia, Delaware Valley, Washington & Lee and Hagerstown Community College.
The Paul Kaiser Classic is a rejuvenation of the Shippensburg University Collegiate Invitational that was discontinued in 1999 due to the implementation of the PSAC mandated quad meets. This meet was re-named in honor of long-time Shippensburg University cross country and track & field coach, Paul Kaiser, who is also known as “Killer Kaiser” for his competitive spirit.
Beginning next fall Shippensburg University will offer students the skills needed to be successful in the global economy.
The program, which was approved April 11 by the Board of Governors of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, will allow the university to expand its current international studies program into a Bachelor of Arts degree in international studies. It will provide graduates with the skills to meet the challenges of an ever-changing, globally connected and interdependent world; and to meet Pennsylvania’s demand for workers capable of negotiating the links between the Commonwealth and the global economy.
The program will include area studies, global studies, foreign language and study abroad/internship requirements. Over the past decade, the international studies minor has been one of Shippensburg’s fastest growing academic programs, increasing from 14 students in fall 2001 to 92 in Spring 2012.
The program builds upon Shippensburg’s current international studies minor and its more than 120 interdisciplinary offerings of international studies courses to meet the needs of existing students seeking greater curricular opportunities in international studies. Transfer students and veterans returning to college, especially those with international experiences, will be able to build upon their prior learning.

Chances are you have seen countdown signs around campus reminding you to use your flex.
The flex you have left on your account can not be transferred to the fall semester, despite being able to between the fall and spring.
If you don’t manage to use it all, your money won’t go to waste.
The money that is left over is rolled back into the food service accounts and they use it for utility bills, broken equipment and other expenses.
Dr. Roger Serr is in the process of getting the same flex transfer for the spring to fall semesters.
