Reasons to attend and to not attend Bucknell University

To Attend

  • “I feel that I’m getting a very high-quality education. I’m very impressed by the professors and the small class sizes. I feel like I’m learning and retaining the information.”
  • “It has amazing academics. What I’ve heard from the majority of people is that they love their classes and they love their teachers. People are so sad to leave at the end of the year because you’ve had such a great experience. People also love to learn at Bucknell.”
  • “The student body is really bright. I feel like you’re constantly having educated conversations and not just meaningless ones.”
  • “It’s a beautiful school. That’s one of the reasons I fell in love with it.”
  • “It is a good balance between having fun and being studious. A majority of the students like having fun but also like to study.”

To Not Attend

  • “If you are deciding between a city school and Bucknell, I think that’s a sign to not go to Bucknell because it’s so rural. You are in central Pennsylvania. If you want to be near stores and malls, rural Pennsylvania’s not for you.”
  • “Greek life is competitive and it is not for everyone. If Greek life is not for you, that makes your social life harder because the nightlife revolves around Greek life.”
  • “It’s not really that diverse of a student population, it is very homogeneous.”
  • “It’s really expensive.” [For the 2018-2019 academic year, the total cost was about $70,000.]
