Pre-Flight Programs will help you get involved on campus early, meet other students with similar interests and acclimate to your new home away from home — all before Take Flight Orientation officially begins. You’ll be able to move into your fall residence hall room when you arrive to campus for your Pre-Flight Program, which is several days before the rest of new students will arrive. Commuter students will be able to live on campus for the duration of their Pre-Flight Program if interested.

Review Pre-Flight Program information below and learn about what each program has to offer!

2024 Pre-Flight Program

Each program hosts their own schedule each day. Evening programs and events are open for all participants to connect and relax at the end of each day. Sample schedules can be found below under each program.

New fall student-athletes who may arrive early to campus will be invited to attend evening programming as their schedule allows.

Program Costs

There is no cost to participate. Once program placement has been confirmed with students, a $25 refundable registration deposit will be applied to their account. Following your completion of your Pre-Flight Programs, the $25 registration deposit will be credited back to your account. This in no way affects your overall financial assistance package, and there is no payment required at time of registration.


All new incoming students to Susquehanna University (residential and commuter) beginning in the fall are invited to register for a Pre-Flight Program. Please review each program’s eligibility requirements as some programs have specific eligibility requirements. For questions regarding specific programs, please reach out to the individual program coordinators listed below.

Program Registration

Students will be asked to rank programs according to their preference. While students’ first choice is not guaranteed, we do our best to place students in one of their top three choices while considering program eligibility.

If programs reach registration capacity prior to the registration deadline, registration will turn into a waitlist. We will do our best to accommodate as programs fill.

Registering early does not guarantee a first-choice placement as some programs have specific eligibility requirements.
