Beautiful Campus

It's a beautiful campus, and easy to get around. The Bucknell Shuttle will pick you up and drive you to the popular spots around the campus and town.

Bucknell University has a nice campus with a lot of great buildings. It is very scenic and is a first rate school. My son, my wife, and I really enjoyed our campus tour and met some very friendly people. However, all this niceness comes with a cost and it's a whopping $64,000 a year on average. That is not a...

I came here for a college visit with a prospective student and was very impressed with the nice facilities that are available to the students, faculty and staff at Bucknell. From the Athletic Buildings to the Classroom Buildings and the student union, everything at Bucknell is top notch! As pointed out by another reviewer, it is expensive to attend Bucknell... More

For decades I have wanted to visit Bucknell. Our son was accepted to study there which prompted us to make our first visit there. A morning run through the campus and athletic fields gave me a first hand opportunity to see the campus and learn its history. Set in a valley framed by hills to the north and west, the... More

I had a fabulous time spending time with other Alumni. The game festivities were great, and our campus is lovely in the fall.
