The school is a great institution that has great Science, Management, and Buisness. There campus is appealing and there is alot of spots for all types of people. The teachers seem good and willing to help. The schools curriculum is very good and offers a large variety of different types of classes. The campus life is okay at best but does have different options and opprotunities for different people, such as Greek life and different clubs and student run programs. The Alumni system within the school is very strong and helps when it comes to looking for internships and jobs. The night life is not good at all but that in turn gives more time to focus on your school work and studies. Overall though it is a fine institution and I will keep it in consideration when deciding on which college to go to.

I was hesitant to chose Bucknell because it's so small and I thought that meant isolated. Really, you hardly leave campus because there's just so much to do. Bucknell offers tons of clubs and sports at all level in addition to near nightly campus events, not to mention parties. The people here are great, however the housing department finds some special way to match you up with your exact opposite. Residential colleges are generally great but the university makes it seem much better than it is in practice. Don't be afraid to talk to your professors, they all really care. BU could have more school spirit when it comes to sports, but overall you just get the sense everyone is happy and excited to be there.

I am a first year student at Bucknell and all my interactions with Bucknell have just been positive so far. Professors really care about you. The social scene is a lot of fun! It may be hard freshmen year, but it gets better. I think its the perfect school
