Susquehanna University Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Elise

That I would not be eligible for work study because of my parents' income - even though their income in no way impacts my own...

Shayma

Nothing at all. I'm fine.

Annie

There is a large world out there full of many opportunities and experiences just waiting for you!

Melissa

Although I have eaten on campus before I decided to go there, tt would have been nice to know what kind of food is typically served at the different eateries on campus.

Katharine

I wish I had known more about choices for a major. I am majoring in Art History and Spanish and graduating in May. I took a Black and White Photography course last semester and realized that Photography is what I want to pursue. I wish I had realized my passion before I came to school. My education is priceless now, but I will always want to learn more. I also wish I had known how small the departments for my majors were. Only one or two upper level classes are offered each semester.

Matthew

Before coming to SU, I wish I had known where I would end up after one semester. The old me would have never believed how easy it is to be involved on campus! Currently, I am a Student Government Senator, as well as a member of the Phi Mu Delta fraternity. But most importantly, I am able to be involved in caving research as not only an undergraduate, but as a freshman! The great thing is that all of these clubs, organizations and opportunities are available to everyone that comes to Susquehanna.

Lauren

I wish I had known that it really is small. There are no other schools within a half an hour drive and the larger cities, Philadelphia, New York and Baltimore, are very far.

Melissa

I wish I had trully known what an amazing life changing experience college would be in my life. I have learned so much about myself as an individual. College trully is about finding yourself. College is that time where you can try many new things and learn so much about life and the world we live in. You don't have to know all the answers right now, that is part of the fun. It is the discovery that makes college life such a wonderful experience.

Rachel

there really isn't much focus on what to do when you enter the "real world" but that could also have to do with the fact that i majored in music-i'm in grad school now, which i don't regret, but all of my fin aid now is LOANS...will be paying off for the rest of my life. ahh!

Christina

I wish I had better know who I was so that I would've immediatley been involed in the things that truly interested me.
