Susquehanna University had nearly finished several building projects when it undertook its latest master plan. This plan was intended to address the next series of challenges the university will face, including:
- Creating social spaces, both interior and exterior.
- Continuing growth of the student population with its inherent demands.

- Parking, circulation and aesthetic issues.
Strengthening relationships with the Selinsgrove Community.
A broad spectrum of individuals and groups from the campus community worked to identify issues, build consensus and create alternatives for guiding the new wave of campus growth. These efforts resulted in a campus master plan, a plan that was documented in a traditional book format and as a web page.
The vision for Susquehanna’s campus includes new recreation areas and athletic fields, expanded residential facilities, additions to the Degenstein Student Center and Fisher Science Hall, and possibilities for a new academic quad.
