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 University is a great overall school. While there have been many physical altercations and incidents that involved the police in the one year I've been there, it is still a good school. They have a great campus garden and care about science and glorious research opportunities!
The first year at Susquehanna University proved to be challenging, although sophomore year has been amazing. Equestrian Club has allowed me to make forever friends and participate in the community. The academics are rigorous, but challenges you in a good way. The one thing that sets Susquehanna apart from other universities is their Go Program. Every student must study abroad to complete their curriculum. This allows for every student to experience unique and diverse experiences that challenges their everyday life.
