Campus Food: Overall, it's really not that bad. However, one of my friend's is vegan, and she can have a hard time getting a lot of food. Also, sometimes, there are just bad days in the dining hall where I don't want to eat anything, but the food itself is pretty good.

Campus Housing: Campus housing is great! There are a variety of different styles of housing to choose from, and wherever you live, you are always relatively close to your classes!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our Women's Swim Team won the conference title 5 times in a row.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Joining Greek Life was hands down the best choice I made at SU. Our Greek life has a good reputation on and off campus. There are always those who think we pay for our friends, etc but overall those who do not choose to do it and those who do get along. W

Off-Campus Dining: I eat off campus relatively often. If you have a car or a friend with one there are plenty of options. On the strip there are lots of chain places. You can also find things in town or go to Sunbury (Marlin's Sub Shop is the best) or Lewisburg. If you look you will probably find something. Siam and Sushihanna are always worth a trip to Lewisburg.

Party Scene: It was definitely better before they got rid of off-campus housing however if you look you can normally find something to do. Personally, I do not like big parties I do not often look for them.

Administration: I feel for the most part it is fair. If you aren't being ridiculous or a jerk you probably won't get in trouble. Still, sometimes things aren't always fair.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got pretty good aid. I did not have to fight with them as did at other schools for a fair amount when I was trying to figure out where I could afford to go.

Campus Food: It gets boring. In addition, the food this year was not nearly as good as it was last year. Luckily, after complaints they added "Greens to Go" in Benny's which is normally pretty good.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The campus housing is nice. I lived in an on campus townhouse as a sophomore and it was spacious. I didn't get a kitchen but we made due with things we brought from home. I really enjoyed it.

Party Scene: It can vary night to night. Taking away off campus housing hurt it a lot. Sass and 18th have decent stuff sometimes but public safety and RAs are dicks sometimes.

Administration: The administration is okay they are more strict on some things than others.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I do not qualify for a lot of the aid but they helped me out with what I could get.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are good days and bad days. You just have to know the right places to go at the right time. It would be worse. I never have a problem with running out of flex or meals, you just have to manage it well.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: On campus housing can be really nice but no off campus housing is a downfall for a lot of people.

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.
