Letter from the Dean of Students
Dear Susquehanna Student,
The 2013-2014 Student Handbook is the guide to your rights and responsibilities as a Susquehanna student. The Code of Student Conduct, found within the Handbook, lays out the expectations for being a member of the Susquehanna community. Please read this document carefully and if you have any questions about a rule or policy, please ask a Student Life staff member for clarification. You are responsible for understanding our community standards and ignorance of a policy is not an acceptable excuse for violating it. The Course Catalog is an equally important source of University policies, expectations, and deadlines, especially those related to the academic program. You should become familiar with it as well.
We are committed to your learning and want to help you get the most out of your college experience. To do so, Susquehanna provides countless opportunities for involvement and support. You can enhance the quality, value, and enjoyment of your Susquehanna experience by becoming actively engaged and taking advantage of the resources that are available to assist you. The Career Development Center, the Center for Academic Achievement, and the Center for Civic Engagement are all tremendous resources for supporting your academic, career, and service pursuits.
You’ll also find many opportunities for leadership and fun, both on and off campus through varsity, intramural, and club athletics, co- and extra-curricular clubs and programs, and opportunities to serve and connect with causes that interest you on the local, national and global level. Have a great year!
Dr. Philip E. Winger
Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students
Note: The Student Handbook and its policies are reviewed and revised annually. For the most up-to-date policies, be sure to review the student handbook at the beginning of each academic year.
