    Bucknell is outrageously expensive. I have to remind myself that the degree my degree will be worth it, but seriously, it's expensive. Depending on your major, you'll have to decide whether or not your specific degree will be worth the expense and hard work Bucknell entails

    Bucknell offers financial aid in generous amounts depending on your financial situations at home. They really work to provide each student with the amount of money that they need in order to make their academic dreams come true.

    Bucknell is expensive ($56,190) a year but I would say that it is definitely worth the money. The education at Bucknell is great, the campus is beautiful, the dorms are nice, the people are friendly, the food is great, the sports teams are pretty good...I really can't complain. You get what you pay for!
