Additional Services

Susquehanna University provides a wide variety of services available to any student. Some of these services are as follows:

The Center for Academic Achievement offers individualized and group assistance regarding time management, study skills and writing skills, as well as coordinating tutoring services. The Academic Advancement Program provides support for students in a regular and structured manner. Contact:  James Black, Director.  Email: black@susqu.edu  |  Phone: 570-372-4184.

The Writing Center offers assistance with any type of writing assignment. A student can bring in a paper at any stage of the writing process and meet with a tutor for a private session. The tutor will help the student to focus ideas, revise a rough draft, or polish a more finished draft. It's best to schedule an appointment a few days before the paper is due, to allow time for revision. Contact:  Melanie Rohrbach, Administrative Assistant. Email: rohrbach@susqu.edu  |  Phone: 570-372-4412.

The faculty at Susquehanna pride themselves on being accessible and supportive to students. Students should make a point of talking to their professors, asking questions after class, going to office hours, and learning to be a self-advocate for their needs with faculty.

The Counseling Center provides counseling and emergency services to students who are experiencing emotional, behavioral, and relationship difficulties. The transition to college can be difficult for any student, and may be particularly complex for a student with a disability. Contact: Cynthia Moyer. Email: moyerc@susqu.edu  |  Phone: 570-372-4751.

In addition, psychiatric services are available through the Counseling Center. However, the Counseling Center is not able to provide assessment for attention deficit disorder/attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD) or learning disabilities, nor provide medication for ADD/ADHD.

The Health Center assists students in addressing acute illnesses, preventative care and promotion of health and wellness, for example, gynecological exams, student drivers for off-campus appointments, smoking cessation classes. The Health Center also stocks some common pre-packaged medications which are usually less expensive than those at local pharmacies. All services are confidential.
