      Susquehanna is often underrated for its academics and opportunities. Many of my professors have been great in advancing me through my majors and encourage you to do as much as you can, which I also strongly advice if you come here! There's also so many clubs and activities to participate in it's hard to choose just a few. Greek Life is also super strong, and is something I didn't expect to be a part of, but found it enlightening regardless.

      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.

      This was the best place for learning! The environment is so energetic and fun, there’s never a dull moment! I would really recommend this college for other students looking for a fun and easy to be around environment. Although there was this one teacher, I won’t name I didn’t think particularly liked me but other than that everything was amazing,. Including the food mmmhm. It’s also very easy to pay off ! Campus is always clean and presentable.
      I was an applicant of Susquehanna University as a high school student, and I got accepted and received financial aid to my astonishment. Unfortunately, I turned it down and proceeded to study in another country. However, I am applying to this university as a transfer student and throughout my application process, my counselor has been nothing but caring and understanding about my situation. I praise all of the aid and support this university gives to its prospective students and its current students. This is indeed the one true university that actually invests its resources to the future of their students.
