• Students relax in The Nest

August 06, 2019

Susquehanna University is named one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduates to earn their college degree, according to The Princeton Review.

Susquehanna is one of only 13% of the nation’s 3,000 four-year colleges profiled by The Princeton Review, which chooses colleges based on data it annually collects from thousands of college administrators about their institutions’ academic offerings.

The Princeton Review also considers data it gathers from its surveys of nearly 150,000 college students who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences.

In their survey responses, Susquehanna students pointed to a variety of academic offerings that make Susquehanna stand out, including the university’s “top-notch” creative writing program, “outstanding” music education program and “strong” science departments.

Students also praised the cross-cultural immersion they receive through the Global Opportunities program, which offers a wide range of off-campus educational programs in both domestic and international locations. Susquehanna was among the first in the nation to require every student to have a meaningful cross-cultural experience followed by scholarly reflection.

In addition to being named as one of the “Best Northeastern Schools,” Susquehanna is also recognized as one of the nation’s best “Green Colleges.” The list takes into consideration whether students have a quality of life on campus that is both healthy and sustainable, how well a school is preparing students for employment in an increasingly green economy and how environmentally responsible a school’s policies are.
