Susquehanna University is a national liberal arts college committed to excellence in educating undergraduate students for productive, creative and reflective lives of achievement, leadership and service in a diverse and interconnected world. The university is located in Selinsgrove, Pa., a town of about 5,000 situated on the banks of the Susquehanna River, 50 miles north of the state capital, Harrisburg. The campus is about 90 minutes from the Pocono ski areas, and about a three-hour drive from New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.
Founded in 1858, the university enrolls approximately 1,900 students in the School of Arts, Humanities and Communications, School of Natural and Social Sciences, and Sigmund Weis School of Business. A Susquehanna education is distinguished by a strong liberal arts program enhanced by equally strong professional programs in areas such as business, education and communications. Degrees are offered for the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Science.
Susquehanna University is recognized in several guidebooks to selective colleges including The Fiske Guide to Colleges and Peterson\'s Competitive Colleges. Since 2002, U.S. News & World Report\'s \"America\'s Best Colleges\" has included Susquehanna in its list of National Liberal Arts Colleges, which represent the best 217 institutions for undergraduate learning in the country. Previously, in the 1995-2001 editions, U.S. News ranked SU as the number one regional liberal arts college in the North.
Susquehanna is small enough to be flexible, yet large enough to offer a wide variety of choices - more than 50 major emphases, 45 minors and 850 courses. Susquehanna offers a challenging Honors Program for exceptional students and emphasizes experience-based learning, including internships, study-abroad semesters and the university\'s award-winning community service programs. Small classes and a student-faculty ratio of about 14 to 1 offer students personal attention and challenging assignments. Student participation and team learning are encouraged, as is faculty-student research that exposes students to current, practical applications in their field of study. Susquehanna\'s sophisticated computer network connects all residence hall rooms to campus offices, classrooms, on and off-campus libraries, and the worldwide Internet.
Students are also offered extensive opportunities for involvement and leadership in university life. They can choose from more than 100 student organizations, 23 intercollegiate sports, numerous intramural sports, and a full schedule of lectures, concerts, films, plays and social events.
Susquehanna\'s strong academic and career advising programs have led to excellent placement rates. Typically, 95 percent of the graduating class is placed within six months. About 25 percent of liberal arts and sciences students enter graduate or professional school immediately after Susquehanna.
