Susquehanna University is recognized in the most recent edition of the Fiske Guide to Colleges.
The book notes Susquehanna's commitment to diversity, and lauds the university's emphasis on off-campus study that prepares students to work in cross-cultural teams, its innovative curriculum that links relevant majors with career success, and scholarship opportunities.
It also highlights some of Susquehanna's most popular academic programs, including business, the sciences, creative writing, music, graphic design and psychology.
Compiled by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, the guide is a selective, subjective and systematic look at 300-plus colleges and universities in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
"It is an honor for Susquehanna to be included in the Fiske Guide, which recognizes our academic excellence," said Madeleine Rhyneer, vice president for enrollment and marketing at Susquehanna University. "Our students receive an outstanding arts and sciences education and apply what they learn in the classroom in research and internship opportunities. Those practical experiences lead to success in employment and graduate school admission."
In fact, 96 percent of Susquehanna's new graduates are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation.
The Fiske Guide covers a broad range of subjects to help inform families in their college search, including a school's student body, academics, social life, financial aid, campus setting, housing, food and extracurricular activities.
