PARSIPPANY — Susquehanna University student Ashley Burroughs studied in England during the fall semester.

Providing all students with a cross-cultural experience is an integral part of a Susquehanna education. Susquehanna is distinguished by its Global Opportunities (GO) program, which requires all students to spend at least two weeks off campus, immersed in a culture different from their own. Currently, Susquehanna students can choose from study-away programs ranging from a few weeks to as long as a full semester semester, in Africa, Asia, Australia, South America, Europe, New Orleans and Washington, D.C., among other options.

Burroughs is a communications and business administration major in the Class of 2017. A 2013 graduate of Parsippany High School, she is the daughter of Don and Arletha Burroughs.

Susquehanna University is a selective, residential liberal arts college that provides a solid background in the liberal arts and sciences, as well as professional experiences. Students develop critical thinking, writing, teamwork and communication skills which, combined with internships and research opportunities, prepare them for a lifetime of personal and professional success. The university is recognized nationally for its commitment to off-campus study through the Global Opportunities program. Small classes enable faculty members to serve as mentors, as well as teachers. Ninety-four percent of Susquehanna students are employed or in graduate or professional school within six months of graduation.
