Academics: The academics of the School of Management at Bucknell are great, but I have not had many classes within the school yet and I do not know if I will stick with the major yet.

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty significant on campus, and if you choose not to get involved you will have much less social opportunities.

An overwhelming amount of students say that they cannot imagine being in college anywhere else and are extremely happy with their decision to attend Bucknell. Many students have gripes about the isolated location, lack of diversity, and emphasis on Greek life, but these issues all seem to dull in comparison to the overwhelming sense of community that many Bucknellians admit to feeling. Most think of the “Bucknell Bubble” as a bad aspect of their college experience, but it also appears to be the very thing that has made Bucknell the cohesive place that students say they love. Bucknell has gotten the reputation of being a private institution filled with rich kids that think too highly of themselves, but while some kids do fit that description here, it is not the norm—most of the people you will meet here are truly genuine.

Bucknell is a place where students can flourish academically and socially in a small, supportive environment. Professors are deeply committed to the students, and the students seem to be genuinely interested in learning. The campus is physically breathtaking, and you will often find yourself in awe while walking in the academic quad through autumn leaves or watching a crisp, cold winter sunset from the top of Freas Hall. Bucknell may not be located in the hustle and bustle of a city with new and eccentric sites around every corner, but what Bucknell has is a very real sense of family—something that no city school could ever achieve.
