3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience wasn't the worst at Susquehanna, I just think it wasn't the school for me which is okay. The increase in class sizes however made me feel like I was paying too much for what I was promised.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have never taken steps to become employed on campus so i can't really comment

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: No body trusts public safety on campus and measures have been taken as of the end of the year to resolve these issues. I have never felt uncomfortable walking or running around campus by myself however as a female student.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing experience depends on where you live. I lived in Smith hall, second floor and it tended to get pretty gross. The rooms aren't big either and a lot of people were forced into triples which made it even tighter.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's a small campus and greek life isn't a major role in the social scene. Non-greeks and greeks are friends though, there doesn't seem to be a barrier.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The facilities are up to date and the teams are very close. The fan base for female sports isn't the best though.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I wouldn't choose this school again as a biology major because it is very liberal and does not have many opportunities for internships in this field. You're lucky if you get to participate in faculty research but that's really your only option. Otherwise the school is beautiful and very homey, just not the best for science majors.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience with academics and professors have been positive.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center is very good with helping you prepare for your future.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been break-ins and other misfortunes, but they do not happen often. I feel safe enough to walk back to my dorm alone late at night.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am not a fan of the housing lottery. However, the housing accommodates basic needs. Off-campus housing or non-school owned apartments would be nice.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Most of athletics teams are not that since. Because of this sporting events usually are not well attended.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoyed my first year at SU. Its a small school with a tight-knit community. My only criticisms are that it can be a little dull on weekends.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are drugs and alcohol present but I have never felt pressured to drink with friends or to do drugs. It's there but avoidable.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have the best indoor track in Pennsylvania and one of the best football fields, pools, and courts.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school experience so far has been nothing but eye opening in the best way!

I am honored to have been able to make this place my home and I can not imagine my life if I had chosen somewhere else.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: I feel very safe when walking around the campus. It's in a safe area and everyone there is very friendly and would never hurt anyone.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The professors actually care about your success and will do anything in their power to help you achieve your goal.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: I don't have a lot of experience with this yet but I heard that the internship and career prospects after school are incredible.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: The dorms are great. I have enough space for everything and I don't feel like I'm short on space. The storage space is perfect.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Greek life isn't a huge part of campus life but it is big enough so that many students are involved. They are a great help if your major is the part of the fraternity or sorority.

3 College Student

Athletics: Not everyone is involved, but the people that are, are great individuals who show teamwork, spirit and are friends on and off the field.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: This school is one of the most hands on, caring school I have ever experienced. They care about your success and want you to get something out of your degree.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security is always patrolling and if there is ever an incident (an unknown loitering in a car) we are notified. During the bombing in Paris, all students and family were alerted to the safety and whereabouts of any Go Short/Long students immediately.

Susquehanna is an amazing place to go to school. While some people see it as their worst nightmare, for those who want a small liberal arts school, there aren’t many better places to go than SU. The academics are impressive, the faculty is caring, and the atmosphere created by the students is amazing. A good motto for SU students is “work hard, play hard.” Everyone is here to succeed, but having fun never hurt anyone. While there are always a couple of students who forsake the work part, the majority of campus has its priorities straight. It’s easy to strike a balance between work and a social life.

While there are shortcomings on the SU campus, they pale in comparison to the positives. There are a lot of catch-22s. Campus security is really strict, but at the same time, the campus is incredibly safe. Professors live close so there are rarely snow days, yet they care deeply about their students and open up their homes to them. As already mentioned, if you are looking for a city atmosphere or a large campus, then SU would not be your ideal spot. However, if you want a smaller school, or better yet, have no idea what you want in a school, then Susquehanna really is the place to be. You can’t get lost in the shuffle on this campus; there will always be someone looking out for you, be it professor, roommate, or peer.
