Why Susquehanna Students Deliver
They are critical thinkers.
Our Central Curriculum requirements give students the skills they need to solve problems across all disciplines and express themselves in both written and verbal communications.
They are high-achieving.
Susquehanna’s graduation rates far exceed the average rates among colleges and universities. In addition, typically 94 percent of our students are employed or enrolled in graduate or professional school within six months of graduation.
They are geographically diverse.
Students attend class with about 2,200 other students from 35 states and 21 countries.
They are culturally competent.
All students are required to spend at least two weeks studying away from campus in a culture different from their own through our Global Opportunities program.
They are skilled in languages.
Susquehanna’s language proficiency requirement translates well to the global workplace.
They are service-oriented.
Susquehanna students contribute more than 25,000 hours of community service annually.
They are capable and confident.
Students learn leadership and time management skills through the more than 140 active clubs and organizations on campus.
They are team players, on and off the field.
Approximately 25 percent of students are varsity athletes, but everyone participates in academic projects that require teamwork and collaboration.
They are experienced.
Unlike most undergraduates, they have the opportunity to get involved in student-faculty research projects and often present their findings at national or regional conferences. All students complete a capstone course that showcases their knowledge in their major fields of study.
