Susquehanna University is among the top universities with the highest percentage of students who study abroad, according to a new ranking by U.S. News & World Report.
With 78 percent of its 2014 graduates having studied abroad, Susquehanna was ranked No. 8 nationally among the more than 300 colleges and universities that submitted data to U.S. News. In contrast, among the 321 schools surveyed, an average of 23 percent studied abroad.
"Every student who studies at Susquehanna will study off campus, either abroad or domestically, in a cross-cultural environment," said Scott Manning, dean of global programs. "Our Global Opportunities program removes the barriers to studying abroad that students may encounter at other colleges, and that is something we are very proud of."
U.S. News & World Report released the ranking as part of the magazine's Short List. Separate from the magazine's overall college rankings, The Short List is a regular series that magnifies individual data points in hopes of providing students and parents a way to find which undergraduate or graduate programs meet their interests.
