Welcome, New Students!

The First-Year Experience staff is here to help make your transition to college life as smooth as possible, help you thrive here at Susquehanna, and inspire you to become your best selves! We plan and coordinate events especially for you that begin in June and continue throughout your first year.

As an enrollment requirement, Take Flight: Orientation occurs immediately prior to the start of the fall semester to welcome all new students to the Susquehanna University community. Our goal? To make new River Hawks feel at home from the moment they arrive and ready to “take flight” on their first semester! Our programs are designed to ensure all students, parents, families, and supporters are welcomed and connect to campus resources at Susquehanna University.

Get Ready To Take Flight!

As a new student, you will have access to a variety of tools, programs and so much more as you prepare for your journey at Susquehanna.

Virtual Summer Orientation Series

Following conversations about how to best welcome you to our community safely, we are offering a variety of virtual sessions for students and virtual panels for parents, families, and supporters. Check out our calendar of events and sign up to get a link sent to you ahead of the event. Can’t make it? No worries! We’ll record sessions and post them online for you to access on your own.

We can’t wait to celebrate your upcoming transition to Susquehanna!
