"I love all of the psychology professors that I had. They even made classes such as statistics a fun class to be in. I enjoyed my time here. The small class sizes made every class personal, and the questions that you have are always going to be answered. You have a relationship with the professors, and many times I have found myself sitting in their offices at random times just to talk. I loved my business minor too. It was exactly what I was interested in without all of the math classes and in depth information that I did not want to learn. It was an overview of business, which is exactly what I wanted. I loved these classes, and it was a lot of hands-on experience."

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2017
"Objectively, the creative writing program is stellar and definitely helps one to open up their creative minds and try out new things. However, I personally wish that I attended another school due to the obvious racism and dismissive attitude towards the student body. I understand that I could have that experience anywhere, but it was definitely unbearable when I experienced that and had nowhere to go in a farm area. These are all my personal opinions though. Thankfully I met a lot of cool people that travelled from all over the United States and other parts of the world. The study abroad program is not only awesome but also a requirement in order to graduate. That was definitely a juicy plus. As for the art program, there is a heavier focus on graphic design rather than studio art, so I more or less did a lot of self-teaching in that department. The school in general apparently has an excellent business program, so for others it could have been a totally opposite experience."

"Susquehanna University was the best experience of my life. It's located in Selinsgrove, PA, a very tiny and beautiful town about an hour and a half away from Harrisburg--basically directly center of Pennsylvania, which for most people might be a deal breaker, especially if you're used to city life. But there is something so mesmerizing about the Susquehanna river and the quaintness of Selinsgrove that makes you wonder how you haven't lived there your whole life. The faculty is so supportive and understanding. Any time I felt uneasy, or unsure of myself and what I was doing, I was always able to turn to trusted faculty and sort out my issues. I truly felt that the professors I worked with wanted me to succeed both at the university and beyond. The campus itself was also really incredible. The university always strived to have the very best things on our campus at all times, like concerts, and games, different attractions on weekends, so that the campus was always jumping on the weekends, instead of students heading home for the weekend. The financial aid department was also extremely helpful. There were several points throughout my time in undergrad where I thought I wouldn't be able to afford my education, or participate in certain activities on campus because of my finances, but they always took the time to talk to me and help me figure out the best thing for me. I would highly recommend this university to anyone that likes feeling like you're a student and not just a number. This was the best experience of my life. This university introduced me to life long friends, and opened up doors I didn't know existed."

"When one pursues a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing, one does not do it for the some job that they think will be supplied on the other end. They do it because they are a creative that wants to study and hone their craft. One of the big benefits of attending SU if you want to pursue Creative Writing is that they have created a writing community on campus. It's not just a major, but entire environment of learning. Due to it's smaller size, you are able to get personal feedback from the creative writing professors over the course of your academic career, and they definitely built the Writers Institute on campus into more than just a couple classes, but a learning experience with workshops, visiting writers series, a writers house, and other involved practices. I left Susquehanna University with a well-rounded liberal arts education particularly when it comes to strong writing and communication skills."

"When I attended SU, my classmates and I were the guinea pigs of the new curriculum. One that forced you to attend part of the GO program (I. E. travel for a minimum of two weeks). For all that I learned at Susquehanna, and after all of the time my teachers invested in I and my fellow classmates, I felt like my classes only prepared me in my own talents and skill, not in how I would use it for the world. Or how to find jobs with my skill set. Or how to write a cover letter. We had one half semester class for where we will go after college. Over half the class was for graduate school. After all the years of telling us that writers make very little and it will take hours and hours to make something acceptable you would think they would help us figure out of next steps a little more. This program is not worth the 40+ K a year."
