A one-day program designed to prepare you for academics and activities at SU

Think of this as training day for the fall.

During your June Summer Preview Day, you'll do a variety of things introducing you to fellow students and professors, and get you ready to come back in August.

During Summer Preview Day, you'll:

  • Meet members of the faculty to learn more about academic programs of study.
  • Complete your foreign language placement testing.
  • Get a first-hand look at student services and resources.
  • Receive your copy of the first-year Common Reading.
  • Take care of any necessary paperwork and transition needs.
  • Get your student ID picture taken.
  • Meet other new students, get to know the campus and have a great time!


Attending a Preview Day is not required; however the majority of incoming students who attended in the past found it helpful in their transition. Check-In for the day and the Information Fair start at 7:30 a.m. The day’s activities begin at 8:00 a.m. and end at 4 p.m.   Lunch will be provided for students. Parents, families and guests can purchase lunch in the dining hall for $5 per person.

Register soon— space for each session is limited—but no later than June 7.

An email with more information will be sent to the SU email of those students who have registered for a Preview Day the  week of June 10. Click the link above for the day's schedule.

Summer Preview Days are not just a student affair. Parents and family members of SU’s first-year and transfer students are invited to participate in the concurrent parent and family Preview Day programs. By participating in your student’s Summer Preview Day, you can assist in your student’s transition to university life.

This program introduces families to the broad curricular and co-curricular aspects of Susquehanna University. You will have the opportunity to meet representatives from the campus community, participate in important university presentations and learn about essential campus resources available to new students. You will also have the opportunity to interact with current Susquehanna students, faculty and administrators and, of course, each other.

Please note that student and family programs are separate and run concurrently. The program begins at 8 a.m. and concludes by 4 p.m., so please make your travel plans accordingly.

Staying overnight in the area? Our Where to Eat, Stay and Play listing may be helpful.

The Office of First-Year Experience will make appropriate accommodations for students who request them. Students with learning or physical disabilities may also request assistance for testing purposes. These accommodations typically consist of extended test-taking or particular testing locations at the university. Students who need other types of accommodations will need to communicate these in advance of their attendance.

A student’s status for testing accommodations during the academic year will be evaluated by the university’s disability support services and approved on an individual basis. For more information, contact Dr. Lakeisha Meyer, director of disability services, at meyerl@susqu.edu.

If you require any accommodations during your registered Summer Preview Day, please contact Dr. Lakeisha Meyer, director of disability services, at meyerl@susqu.edu.
