Biology Major at Susquehanna University
Hands-on research is a hallmark of our biology program. Most undergraduate programs limit you to a semester-long senior research project, but here you can choose to study for a full year alongside a faculty expert. Do so in our state-of-the-art science center equipped for workshop-style classes, an 87-acre field station right on campus or our dedicated laboratory for freshwater research.

Susquehanna University Reviews
Administration can be tough to deal with when a problem arises for students. Students often have to either accept the fact they won't get the help they need or go above the faculty/staff in order to get something accomplished.
For the most part, the faculty is great and helpful for students and the atmosphere is welcoming, but not enough to make up for the lack of assistance.
If you don't put any effort in, you won't get anything out.
Downsides include a meh party scene at times. Housing has also become a nightmare in recent years, since Res Life keeps trying to compact more people in less space. The food can also be pretty mediocre at times.
Despite that, I recommend Susquehanna. There's a lot of opportunity here if you just take the initiative to do it.
