Susquehanna University Reviews
Review Susquehanna University
The students at Susquehanna University will come to be wonderful friends of yours. When our tour guides say that SU has a wonderful community, they're telling the truth! You will get to know your professors, and will likely work closely with multiple professors. The school offers a wide variety of jobs to students, especially those receiving work study. Unfortunately, like all colleges, there are issues with the administration, in that they sometimes have a misguided view of what the student body wants or needs. However, a wonderful pro of this is that this brings the students closer together.
Susquehanna is a Div 3 school, so varsity athletics don't take precedence here like they do at bigger schools like Penn State. However, our athletes and the rest us are enthusiastic about their performance. Our Jacobs' Fitness Center is being renovated this summer to create a varsity only conditioning center that will be under the direct supervision of a full time strength and conditioning coach. The rest of the Fitness Center is also being updated, so that it can serve nonathletes and club athletes just as well as the conditioning center will serve the varsity athletes. As a member of the Rowing team here at Susquehanna, which is registered as a club sport, I can say that club athletics are very popular here and perform just as well as our varsity teams. For example, my team is consistently competes against Div 1 schools at regattas and our men's rugby club team just finished their season third in the nation!
As a member of the SU Dance Team, I appreciate the genuine support and enthusiasm of our student section whenever we perform at basketball games and volleyball matches. While our DIII and intramural athletics definitely are not the primary emphasis of student life at Susquehanna, our athletes are recognized and appreciated by the student body and faculty. Additionally, our men's basketball team competed recently in the first round of the NCAA DIII Basketball Championship which was a huge accomplishment for the team and Susquehanna Athletics as a whole!
