Special Events

Artist Series

The Artist Series is committed to sponsoring internationally acclaimed artists and programs to provide an opportunity for the University family and the greater community to enhance their aesthetic appreciation of the diverse cultures and the artistic heritage of humankind. We strive to link the performances of the Artist Series in ways that advance intellectual engagement, often through master classes, lectures or content of the artistic presentation.

The Artist Series has been presenting quality dance, music, and theatre to Susquehanna University and the surrounding community since 1902.

Claritas Distinguished Lecture Series

This series brings an accomplished scholar in the sciences to our campus annually for a public address. The lecture is typically held in the fall of the academic year.


The school invites distinguished authors, academics and artists to give presentations, talks and readings on campus.

Lore Degenstein Gallery

The Lore Degenstein Gallery aims to exhibit, interpret, collect, and preserve objects of art and material culture through a rich and diverse exhibition program of inquiry supporting academic investigations and contributing to the cultural life of Central Pennsylvania.

While adhering to professional standards of museum ethics, the gallery provides the environment required for preserving and displaying art from both the university's permanent collection and loans from other institutions and private collections.

The gallery program supports cultural life in the campus community and the community at large, particularly that of Central Pennsylvania. Moreover, it participates in the educational and research programs of other institutions with which it establishes mutually supportive relationships through the exchange of scholarly inquiry and the development of cooperative projects.
