It’s unanimous that Bucknell has amazing athletic facilities. A fitness center, pool, and basketball stadium were just finished within the last couple of years. The fitness center received all new equipment for weight lifting and cardio exercise. The computers in the library and academic buildings are all very nice and new. However, some of the computers and printers located in the dorm computer labs need some help. The LC (student center) is fairly new and very nice and contains mailboxes, the bookstore, the Bison (a place to get food), the cafeteria, offices, an ATM, and Samek Art Gallery. Most of Bucknell’s facilities have recently undergone face-lifts. In the past few years, Swartz Hall, a dorm, was renovated, as was Hunt Hall, where the sororities cohabitate and the Breakiron Engineering building was recently added. There are a few buildings still in need of some help, but it seems that Bucknell is always undertaking some kind of renovation to improve the campus. Over the next few years, Bucknell plans on adding more academic buildings and dormitories.
Nearly every student goes through the LC at least once a day. It is in the center of campus, and is the main place where students eat—the Caf and the Bison are here. Since the LC somewhat connects the lower campus (“downhill”) from the upper campus (“uphill”), students often pass through here to get out of the cold for part of their walk across campus. The LC is always a lively place where students meet for meals, shop for necessities at the bookstore, and receive any care packages from home. (Note: Care packages are vital for student happiness!)
