What Students Are Saying

4.24 Average Rating
Bucknell is where the students work hard and play hard. Greek life and athletics are huge. It is a beautiful place to live and get your degree.
Bridget from Milford, CT
All of the students and faculty members are friendly and super approachable.
Bucknell offers a wide variety of different courses, and is known for its academic prestige.
The campus is absolutely beautiful, the dorms are very nice (aka Hotel Bucknell) and the cafeteria food is more like restaurant food--it is delicious!
