Susquehanna University is a distinctive, national liberal arts college committed to academic excellence. Its mission is to prepare undergraduates for productive and reflective lives of achievement, leadership and service in a diverse and interconnected world. Susquehanna University offers students a collaborative and inclusive community, which provides a balance of liberal arts and professional programs led by passionate faculty mentors who guide and teach students in exceptional facilities. The school fosters a results-oriented education strong in experiential learning. A distinctive cross-cultural requirement that takes students out of their everyday experiences and exposes them to cultures different from their own, deepens the educational experience. Students gain transferable skills from numerous transformative opportunities such as internships and service learning, which strengthen leadership skills. The university also puts a premium on close interaction between students and faculty. Faculty, for example, work closely with students on research, encouraging discovery, understanding and collaboration in the theoretical and applied, concrete and abstract, known and unknown. These interactions help prepare students for graduate school or their chosen profession. Many of Susquehanna students are service-oriented; they participate in and even initiate a variety of projects that make a difference close to campus and around the world. This service instills a heightened sense of responsibility and commitment that persists long after graduation. The university instills in its students the best qualities of a residential college and a challenging university, helping students develop self-confidence, intellectual skills, independence and an appetite for learning. Beyond academic commitments, Susquehanna students enjoy an active and comfortable lifestyle on campus and in the borough of Selinsgrove, which is located on the scenic Susquehanna River. Their experience is enriched by a Division III sports program, as well as an array of intramural and club sports, visual and performing arts, clubs and service organizations. After graduation, students become part of an increasingly proud and supportive alumni community that attests to the value and the many benefits that Susquehanna students glean from their undergraduate years.
