Orange and maroon.  Many people think it clashes, but it's our favorite color combination!

And one of our newest traditions is devoted to celebrating our unusual college colors - Orange and Maroon Day each May 1.

Launched in 2014, Orange and Maroon Day gives prospective students, current students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and families a chance to show how far the Susquehanna family reaches and to win a great prize.

On our inaugural Orange and Maroon Day, photos came from near and far - from right here on campus and from students studying abroad half a world away.

Some of our most excited participants came from the incoming first-year class, who showed off the orange and maroon in their high schools National College Decision Day.

Don't forget to wear your orange and maroon this May 1! Then post your photos on our Facebook page or tag them with #oandmday on Instagram or Twitter for a chance to win prizes.

Thanksgiving Dinner

A campus favorite held every year in mid-November, when faculty and staff serve students a carved turkey dinner with all the fixings in Evert Dining Room.

Convocation

We welcome the incoming class at this annual ceremony. After the faculty marshal brings down the ceremonial mace to open the university’s academic year, your journey has begun!

Move-in

An army of incredibly enthusiastic orange-clad volunteers helps you move in to your residence hall without breaking a sweat. Don’t be surprised if you see President L. Jay Lemons hauling your area rug into your room.
