What is your overall opinion of this school?

Susquehanna University is not only a beautiful school, it is diverse. There are so many different kinds of people, there are so many different activities and clubs. There's a little something for everyone. I think that makes the school even more beautiful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's overall a good school if you're looking for a private, smaller university. I just completed my first year and I'm still not completely sold. There are many things that could improve. It doesn't really help that the university itself is in the middle of nowhere. There are no major cities nearby. You get a feeling of isolation, and I went home every weekend I could because of this. I will also say that most days I question whether I should transfer or not. Tuition is high and keeps getting higher, and scholarships that are provided by the school don't increase with the price of tuition. The school is letting in too many students and there are sometimes four people living in a room for two, and you're all paying the price of a room for two. People in the specific major may not actually take any classes relating to their major their entire first year of college because there are too many students for the classes. The school is unprepared for the amount of students it's admitting. Okay that's all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Like all schools, Susquehanna University has it's ups and downs. The overall community of the school is amazing, which is probably the most important thing to me. I enjoy all of my classes and have a number of friends in many different circles, which makes for a very enriching social experience. The only complaints I have come into play with housing and campus food, they aren't the best but at least these are areas where the school can always improve.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely adore Susquehanna University. The campus atmosphere is very welcoming, and there is a plethora of ways to become involved both on campus and in the community. The class sizes are smaller, allowing professors to get to know students on a more personal level. Because of this, I know that my professors genuinely want my peers and I to succeed. There is more collaboration among students due to the smaller class size. Susquehanna also provides resources for students to succeed such as stress relief zones, a career development center, tutoring, and a counseling center. There is a wide variety of majors and minors that are offered, allowing students to specialize in a specific subject matter more than other liberal arts schools. Susquehanna also prides itself on their dedication to service along with their study abroad program, allowing students to have a new perspective of the world. Susquehanna is a beautiful campus that truly allows students to thrive in all aspects of their lives.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Susquehanna is what you make of it. They offer many opportunities for all students, so it's up to you to decide what you do with them. The teachers are always available and the academics are good. There are many clubs on campus and a bus on Saturdays for people who don't have cars. The food could use some improvement, but it's good overall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Susquehanna University has provided me so many opportunities to come out of my shell, meet new people, and become involved on campus. The professors know each student by name and are readily available to help their students. Everyone I meet on campus is always very nice and will always hold the door open for you. I absolutely love Susquehanna University and would encourage high school students looking at colleges to consider Susquehanna if they are looking for a welcoming college with great people and great professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great college with one of the best writing programs I've ever seen and I've made some of my best friends here that I believe will be lifelong friends. We also get the chance to study abroad at a more affordable price. However, there are things that could be improved upon, such as the housing situation, the food situation, not enough parking, and not allowing students to live off campus. Overall, though, it's worth it to come here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Susquehanna University is a very committee based college. Just when I went to visit the campus, there were a bunch of people who would come up to me and talk to create a very friendly atmosphere. Overall, I felt very comfortable and safe on the campus and believed that the positive atmosphere could make it my new home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At first I thought this school was going to be a suitable fit for me. This was a backup school for me and I do and don't regret going. I'll start with the good, because there isn't a lot. One: The academics there is very good. Two: The professors are there for you Three: The study abroad program is a very good deal Now we can go into the bad. My personal experience at SU was not the most pleasant. I'll start with the location of the campus. We are in the middle of nowhere. The town slogan (told to me by an English teacher)is "three hours from anywhere". Everything is a drive away(about ten minutes away) and if you don't have a car and or live close by I can guarantee that you will be trapped in your dorm room from day to night. There is a large school bus that drives only on Saturday mornings to six, but does not give you the appropriate times when the buses will arrive. What is around there is a large thrift store, a basically vacant mall with only three main stream stores, Boscovs, Victoria Secret, and BAM!( books a million). Another thing is the campus activities which is non existent accept for the first full week of schooling at SU. Every other weekend there is nothing to do except, sleep, eat and do work. This is not a place for someone who is used to the city. This is not a place to see new things and experience a real college life. Third, The food that is served is not SAFE to EAT. On NUMEROUS accounts students have had food poisoning from the not fully cooked chicken, and other variety of meats they serve in Evert Dining Hall, Hawks Nest, Clydes. The meat is always undercooked and I have gotten sick myself from eating it unaware of the state of it. I have always inspected my chicken and every single time it is the same. This problem wasn't just brought up from just me, there is a food board at SU with students who have been trying to get the chicken to be thoroughly cooked for the past three years or so and nothing has been done about it. I learned of this from a SU Junior who basically only shops for groceries. and doesn't eat anything from the cafeteria. It is a waste of a meal plan that is about $4000 in your tuition. Four, Stereotypes really stick. Being in the Creative Writing program is great the teachers are wonderful. However, I wanted to know why certain activities where all of the SU students were gathered on Deg Lawn )the main lawn ) whilst the Creative Writing Majors where forced to go up to their separate building. Already to fits into that Introverted stereotype that is portrayed on students who came from high School where theses types of stereotypes just so happen. to be relevant. Lastly, No one on the campus has any positive feedback from the public safety. Who has just assigned their officers to have guns on duty. The public safety are truly not hand in hand with the university students that attend there. (Which I think is highly important) Also a personal experience is that one time A friend and I went to go get pizza from this little shop that was about eight blocks away from campus. A two minute drive no less . A tornado warning was issued about ten. minutes after we had gotten our pizza and the weather outside went from peacefully to terrifying in minutes. We took a chance and called Public Safety to maybe come pick us up to get us Safely back to our dorm. Their response was, "No. you are too far we cannot come and get you." Like I said this shop was a fifteen minute walk, a two minute drive and eight blocks away. We were not anywhere near the mall and or grocery stores, we were right down the street and wanted to see if we could get back to our dorms safety. The rain was heavy, heat lighting had been lighting up the campus, it was frightening. We ended up calling a friend with a car who walked all the way across campus from the library to the student parking who came and picked us up. Other Facts: The party scene is nonexistent. If you like being bone-crushingly close to a random sweaty stranger against a wall at a party then go to Susquehanna. The football games are not that exciting, barely anyone shows up unless homecoming. Greek Life from what I've seen isn't worth it. Also Roommate selection needs to be thoroughly evaluated because I know a lot of people who had psychotic roommates the first semester, I am one of those people, who were less fortunate. Thank you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Susquehanna is a small school and small class size but that gives you more one on one time with your professors. There a hundreds on clubs and activities always going on outside of classes which will create for a good college experience. If you are looking for big school with big classes this is not the place for you as everything is just much smaller than a bigger university.
