Support Susquehanna

Thank You!

Each year, Susquehanna University donors and students gather to celebrate the many ways in which donor support touches the lives of students. This special event provides students with the opportunity to meet and thank, in person, the extraordinary people who make a difference at Susquehanna through their generosity.

Thank you to our loyal donors for the part you play in shaping the lives of Susquehanna students. Through your unwavering support, we are able to provide students with powerful opportunities for learning and growth. 

Mother and daughter duo Melissa Himmelreich ’89 Nicholson and Carolina Nicholson ’18, both recipients of the Douglas ’49 and Lucille Arthur Scholarship, impacting two generations of Susquehannans, spoke at the 2017 event.

Basil Mokhallalati ’18, a psychology major from Glenmoore, Pa., and a recipient of the Pastor Raymond Shaheen Scholarship, also spoke at the event.

"There is no better gift to give a child than education. It is the gift that I will carry for the rest of my life, and it can never be taken away."

“As my senior year approaches, I think about how different my life would be without scholarships. A fantastic four-year private school with millions of memories and lifetime friendships would not be my reality.

"Thanks to this scholarship and amazing institution, I can afford to get my degree and make something of myself, just like my mom did. As I follow in her footsteps, I can only hope I'll be half as successful, and with Susquehanna's education under my belt, it feels more like a reality every day."

"As a first-generation American, I have been given a unique vantage point that provides the insight and ability to remain thankful and not take people or opportunities for granted, because I have seen another way of life."
