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.
