Along with achievement and leadership, service has been central to Susquehanna University's mission. Before classes even begin, first-year students have opportunities with SU SPLASH and SU GIVE to team up with other Susquehanna students in making the world a better place, one service hour at a time.
Throughout their time at Susquehanna, a commitment to civic engagement takes students far. They may find themselves rubbing elbows with politicians, paddling the river with environmentalists, or even travelling to distant countries on university service-learning trips. Campus and local opportunities abound, as well.
Above all, engaged students grow as active, informed citizens of their communities and of the world.
