SFU chasing title of Top College

LORETTO — Saint Francis University has a chance to be named Forbes’ Top College.

The fifth annual #MyTopCollege Social Media campaign runs from June 18 to Aug. 10.

The overall theme for the contest is “Impact: How did your school transform your life?” Students, alumni, staff and faculty are encouraged to post campus photos that pertain to different weekly themes set by Forbes.

Every week, Forbes tallies the top 10 schools with the most posts on Instagram and Twitter related to the theme, and recaps the weekly results on its website.

Forbes will announce the overall winners on Aug. 10 in three categories: small schools (fewer than 2,000 students), medium schools (2,000 to 15,000 students) and large schools (more than 15,000).

The impact category theme for week five is about sports, and how Saint Francis University athletics has impacted your life. Each post must include the #MyTopCollege hashtag as well as the SFU handle, @SaintFrancisPA.

Students, alumni, faculty/staff and the community are eligible to participate.

Student returns from London

SELINSGROVE — Shelby Jury of Clearfield was one of 18 students from Susquehanna University who recently spent time studying in London as part of the university’s Global Opportunities (GO) program.

Jury is an accounting major in the class of 2019. A 2015 graduate of Clearfield Area Junior/Senior High School, she is the daughter of Heather Edd and John Jury II.

Participating students took field trips and collaborated with British professors and law enforcement officials, allowing them to examine British law in the context of the European Union. They compared the law with that of the U.S. and analyzed legal systems, law enforcement practices, sports law and university law.

When they return to campus in the fall, they will visit and interact with local law enforcement facilities and personnel.

As a cross-cultural requirement, study away is an integral part of at Susquehanna education. All students spend at least two weeks off campus, immersed in a culture different from their own, in the U.S. or abroad. Students reflect upon their experiences when they return, guided by faculty members and coursework that promotes discovery and personal growth.

Susquehanna students can choose from study-away programs, ranging from a few weeks to a full semester, in Africa, Asia, Australia, South America, Europe, Puerto Rico and Hawaii, among other options.
