Susquehanna University has been recognized as an innovator and national leader for its business and study-abroad programs in the 39th edition of the Fiske Guide to Colleges, a longstanding guide featuring the top 300-plus universities throughout the United States.

The guide notes Susquehanna’s challenging academics, Central Curriculum, small class sizes and internship and research opportunities, as well as its emphasis on service and Susquehanna’s competitive athletic teams.

The guide also recognizes the university’s AACSB-accredited Sigmund Weis School of Business, making particular note of its international internship opportunities and semester-abroad program in London. Also singled out are Susquehanna’s Common Reading Program, which has been highlighted by the New York Times, its 3+2 cooperative engineering program and the socioeconomic diversity of its students — 98% receive financial aid.

Students quoted on behalf of Susquehanna praised the university’s study-abroad program. As one senior explained, “The goal is for students to experience a new culture before they graduate, and this requirement adds to the culture of diversity at Susquehanna.”

Students also highlighted Susquehanna’s rich campus life and time-honored traditions like Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas Candlelight Service and senior hike.

Among prospective students, their parents and their high-school counselors, the Fiske Guide to Colleges is considered one of the most authoritative sources for college information. The guide’s selection process is based on questionnaires completed by current students and administrators, as well as campus visits and supplementary research conducted by the editorial staff.

The Fiske Guide to Colleges was originally compiled by Edward B. Fiske, who served as education editor of The New York Times for 17 years, and is updated annually by the Fiske editorial team.
