What Students Are Saying

Watch your Flex money. Most new students run out of it three weeks before the end of the semester, if not sooner. Ask the cashier on your way out of Benny's or Clyde's so you can keep tabs on it. Be prepared to work hard, but have fun at the same time. The Student Activities Committee plans several bus trips to NYC and Washington, D.C. for a small bus fee throughout the year, and hosts free concerts and comedians as well (Spring 2009 consisted of comedian Josh Blue, and two concerts, Ryan Star and David Cook, and Fabolous)

My only tip is for you to come here! It's actually a really great school and I'm not just saying that because I go here. Like I said before, the professors really care about their students and you should take advantage of that and talk to them. Also, if you got into the honors program, accept it even if you don't want to continue it. You'll be happy to have taken Thought instead of the 100 level writing course.

If you're thinking of applying here, don't be afraid to visit - specifically, schedule an overnight visit so that you can see what it would be like to live here and meet people here. Whomever you stay with will make you feel at ease and at home, introducing you to friends who will remember you if you do decide to go to school here.
One thing to take into account when deciding whether or not to come here is the school's location. It is in a fairly residential area, and the street on which it sits it filled with fraternity and sorority houses (a plus if you're looking for that). If you're looking for something to do off campus though, you're limited. There is a street about a half a mile away with locally owned shops and restaurants, but beyond that there is a main strip about a mile and a half away with a mall, Walmart, shopping complex, and countless franchises. There are shuttle buses every Saturday that go to this strip, but if you're looking to be able to go somewhere whenever you want, you'll need a car (which freshmen are allowed to have).

Keep track of your flex because it goes pretty quickly if you're not careful. You can always add more (called Crusader Cash), but that;s not always something parents are willing to do since it costs them more than they are already paying. Java City was definitely the cause of me running out of Flex so quickly, so just pay attention to how much you're spending!

Get to know the professors! They will really show you what a great school this is and how people really care about you personally here. If you visit the beautiful campus you are bound to fall in love with it!
1. don't be discouraged by the high tuition, SU's financial aid office works with every financial situation to make a Susquehanna education possible.
2. don't be discouraged by the central PA location - there is always lots to do!
3. if you are to go to Susquehanna - embrace EVERY opportunity (there are a multitude!) because you only get out what you're willing to put in.
Danielle from Hooksett, NH
Be aware that it is a small school and you will get to know many people very quickly because you will see the same faces around all the time.
Be open-minded because there are so many clubs and organizations offering events all the time.
Valerie from North Wales, PA
If you are still deciding on schools and have only looked at SU based on academics, I urge you to take a tour of the campus and schedule an interview. The campus is absolutely gorgeous, and the atmosphere is very pleasant. When I personally visited, I was very nervous about the interview, but anyone who is conducting your interview is not there to grill you, or ask you silly abstract questions. They want to see if you are a good fit for them, and, especially, them for you. It was by far the most pleasant interview I had in the college process. On the way out, grab some food at Benny's in the lower level of Deg!
