What Students Are Saying

3.77 Average Rating
I believe that there is an academic rigor at this school. This is coming from someone who took all AP sophomore - senior year. I believe that it is manageable as long as you stay focused and ask for help when needed.

The Central Curriculum requirements are good for getting you to take classes outside of your comfort zone. I really like the Environmental Science program at my school. You get personalized attention from the teachers, and actually get to know them really well because the department is really small. The new science building is amazing, and Environmental Sciences has our own floor! There are also opportunities for research with the professors! Classes in general are intellectually challenging and rewarding.

The rigor of your academics really depends on your major. However, no matter what you are studying, Susquehanna has a lot of great professors that will give you a great education with some difficulty along the way. It is college, after all.

It's fairly hard to explain exactly why I have given this school four stars, because it's not easy to compare SU with other schools. There are some really cool classes here, but some of them require more work than others. You will find that in any college. Biology is a notoriously rigorous major here, but you'll find that it prepares you really well for your career or graduate school, so it's worth it.
Sarah from Pennsylvania
For some perspective, I am a Creative Writing and Neuroscience double major. So the coursework for me is not difficult. I really enjoy learning and the professors push us to learn past what they are teaching in front of us. However, we have fourteen weeks in our semester instead of sixteen like most semester schools. This just means that our courses move faster than most other schools and if you're not on top of your homework, you will fall behind and it can be difficult to get caught up again.

I would give this a 5-star rating, as the classes are challenging, but with the help of professors, nothing is impossible or too difficult. They will help with any issues you may have and genuinely want you to succeed, so it's nearly impossible to feel over-intimidated by coursework.
