• Students Trumpet the University's 'Awesomeness'
Susquehanna University’s Global Opportunities (GO) program is ranked as the fifth “Most Popular Study Abroad” program in the nation according to The Princeton Review’s 2015 edition of The Best 379 Colleges guidebook. Susquehanna is the only school in Pennsylvania to have earned a place on that distinct list.
Princeton Review’s rankings are based on surveys and comments by 130,000 students attending the colleges profiled in the book. Only about 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and three colleges outside the United States are profiled in The Princeton Review's flagship college guide. In addition to being named as one of the “The Best 379 Colleges,” Susquehanna is also recognized as one of the “Best Northeastern Schools.” Placement on each list is confined to schools deemed by The Princeton Review as “academically outstanding and well worth consideration in your college search.” Parents and students looking at colleges can read what current students think of their college experience.
The popularity of its study abroad opportunities is the latest recognition of Susquehanna’s growing reputation in international education. In 2013, the university received the Institute for International Education’s prestigious Andrew Heiskell Award for Internationalizing the Campus. Students from more than 20 countries call Susquehanna’s campus home, and in the last two years, eight Susquehannans have received prestigious Fulbright awards to study or do research globally.
Also named to the book’s Fire Safety Honor Roll, Susquehanna University has appeared in the Princeton Review’s “Best Colleges” guide for more than 10 years.
