We opened on Sept. 1, 1858, as The Missionary Institute of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, officially becoming Susquehanna University in 1895. During the 20th century, we transformed into a four-year university offering a range of bachelor's degrees for students. In 1903, the school adopted the colors orange and maroon. Throughout the years, we've developed a variety of traditions. 


Our expert faculty are teachers and mentors who will open your eyes to new perspectives and give you a greater understanding of the world.


Our faculty are dedicated researchers who provide our students with rare opportunities for hands-on research experience as undergraduates.


We approach successful outcomes from a liberal arts perspective, empowering you to shape your own future.
