Susquehanna University is featured in Season 8 of The College Tour, a groundbreaking series from Emmy-nominated producers that is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
Hosted by The Amazing Race winner Alex Boylan, The College Tour tells the story of colleges and universities through the diverse lens of its students, providing an intimate portrayal of life on campus.
Susquehanna is one of only four universities in Pennsylvania featured in this season.
“The College Tour gives Susquehanna an opportunity to tell our unique story to a broader audience in a new and dynamic way,” said DJ Menifee, vice president for enrollment at Susquehanna University. “We do this through the experiences of 10 very different students who articulate the breadth and depth of Susquehanna’s offerings – from academics to athletics and study-abroad experiences to campus life and beyond.”
More than 30 students auditioned for Susquehanna’s episode of The College Tour. The 10 selected shared their stories before The College Tour cameras in November 2022. The episode was premiered at Susquehanna in March and made its official debut on Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+ and Tubi on May 23.
Shining a spotlight on the diverse landscape of today’s colleges, The College Tour offers viewers a comprehensive look at campuses across the country. Susquehanna’s episode touches on the many opportunities the university offers to help students thrive, including unique courses, special interest clubs and organizations and real-world experiences outside of the classroom – from international internships to European Union simulations. Students also talk about their experiences in Susquehanna’s Global Opportunities program, the visual and performing arts, Susquehanna’s 23 NCAA Division III athletics teams and faculty-guided research and mentorship.
Inspiring and motivating, The College Tour serves as a vehicle to help students across the world to connect with higher education, enabling them to make informed decisions about their future without having to travel anywhere.
“Susquehanna University offers students an extraordinary experience, and we’re so excited to share that on The College Tour,” Boylan said. “For students, choosing which college to attend is a monumental decision, and this episode gives prospective students a first-hand look at what makes Susquehanna so special.”
