What is your overall opinion of this school?

Susquehanna University is a great school where it is easy to make friends and become involved with pretty much anything that happens on campus. The academics are engaging and the professors are intent on making you learn. The largest problem with the campus is that the food can get real boring real quickly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion, Susquehanna University is an amazing school. Students are constantly encouraged to explore their career options and get involved in extra curricular activities. In my first year, I became an on air DJ at WQSU, our on campus radio station and became a member of Zeta Tau Alpha. Susquehanna University encourages diversity and embraces its LGBTQ+ community and students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The moment I visited SU for the first time, I knew this was going to be my home. Since moving into campus, I have made many new friends, expanded my knowledge in what I was most passionate about, and had many fantastic experiences with the activities and extra-curriculars that SU had to offer. I'm currently an upcoming sophomore and I have no intentions of transferring or switching majors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a beautiful campus, but there is basically nothing to do on campus, or in the nearby area. The academics are not quite worth the price of the university, which is absolutely outrageous. I ended up transferring to a state school because I couldn't afford Susquehanna.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Susquehanna was a wonderful college for many reasons. The true beauty of the campus played a large part in both my acceptance to the university, and my happiness for the four years I attended. In addition, I felt that most of my professors treated us like a true student, and not just another number.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Just from visiting the college I believe I was given a great understanding of how phenomenal it truly is. There are plenty of on-campus services to aid students with their new transition to adulthood and college life. I was also quite impressed with the dining services. The food was high quality, but more than that, there were multiple places to eat at on campus, and many of them offered gluten free food that is guaranteed to be free of cross contamination. As a person with Celiac Disease this is an extremely important factor for me. Every student I spoke to was exceptionally friendly, and they all knew so much about multiple subjects. It was refreshing to have such diverse and in-depth conversations with such polite people! The on-campus housing was phenomenal. I have seen the dorms of quite a few colleges, and they don't add up to Susquehanna. This university seems to focus on student comfort as well as academics, which is something I find important for student health. A comfortable student will have an easier time learning. And speaking of learning... what a library! It was astounding to see all the different rooms for studying, working on projects, and sometimes just having a movie night if no one's busy. The large collection of books was quite phenomenal as well. I'm sure there's plenty I'll be able to use to study, and more! Academic-wise, Susquehanna offers a uniquely diverse range of studies, and focuses on important aspects for building character. I will be attending the college next year, and even while going through quite a few struggles of my own, I'm confident that with everything at Susquehanna, I can succeed with my goals.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Susquehanna University is a unique school that allows anyone who is admitted to be who they are while also pursuing a perfect education. The liberal arts education allows everyone to partake in a core curriculum along with their designated major(s), which makes everyone more fitted to the world after college. Nearly everyone here is extremely friendly, and you're likely to make many friends while you are here. Professors are helpful and are knowledgeable about what they are teaching. I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Susquehanna University is my home away from home. This school's campus is firs of all so beautiful and with a campus population of approximately 2,000 students, there is much space for you to walk around or chase the squirrels. The autumn time is gorgeous and the classes are amazing. I love this school so much it is not even funny. The only thing I do not like is the lack of shopping centers very close. There is a cute are of stores a five minute walk away, but there isn't a grand mall near. The closest mall is a twelve minute drive away. But I love this school.

I Love SU

Susky is a great place to discover himself. I love being here. There are so many interesting people here and the teachers are great. The class sizes are small, which means more one on one with teachers. Teachers are very helpful and they are really good teachers! I learn so much and I really just enjoy being here!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To begin with, do not stay locked up in your room all day. It is very difficult to make friends when you do not leave your room. Also, if your roommate does not seem like your 'cup of tea,' that does not mean that you need to force yourself to become 'besties.' You live together, that does not mean you have to be inseperable. Do not put yourself through that misery. Do not stress yourself out too much about the academics. Yes, it is college, and yes everything is more difficult than high school, but it is not worth putting yourself into anxiety attacks over small problems. You will get through whatever the homework it; try not to procrastinate. Go to the gym or find some kind of active club to join. Seriously. That 'freshman fifteen' is NOT your friend, avoid it at all costs (while staying healthy). Do not be afraid to ask professors for help, it is their job to assist your education. Most importantly, just have fun. I know you may seem homesick or stressed, but college gets easier and goes by a lot quicker than expected. Enjoy it and take a lot of pictures!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I consider the lack of social events and activities to be the worst thing about SU. It makes it more difficult to make lasting friendships when there are limited activities to partake in at school.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that dislikes a small atmosphere should not attend here. This place is very small to the point where just about everyone either knows or knows of everyone, meaning there are very little secrets left unsaid.
