On Oct. 6, 2018, during Homecoming–Reunion Weekend, donors and leadership volunteers gathered in the Admission House to celebrate Milestones, the annual event that recognizes loyal supporters who give of their time, talent and treasure to advance Susquehanna’s mission. Their gifts help us to educate students for productive, creative and reflective lives of achievement, leadership and service in a diverse, dynamic and interdependent world.

Students shared expressions of gratitude and examples of the life-changing impact donors and volunteers have each and every day on the Susquehanna student experience. View the photo album.

"I want you all to know that you’ve enhanced our education tremendously and added value to our degrees in more ways than you know. But you’ve provided more than just educational opportunities for us; many of you have become mentors and role models for us. We know your names, we know your stories, you’ve inspired us. On the behalf of the student body, we thank you for your contributions. We can’t wait to pass your generosity forward to future students. In my four years, I learned what it really means to be a Susquehannan."

"Having the world at our fingers through [use of] Bloomberg terminals is truly beneficial. It’s these and other programs that I and many other students have benefitted from as we learn to thrive in highly competitive environments. When it comes down to the roots of our future success and flourishment, it could not have been done without the assistance and support of all of you in the room today."
