A beautiful campus that expands but keeps it's architectural identity. The sports complex is well done and beautiful. This campus is open and beautifully taken care of. Maintenance keeps the campus tip-top and Lewisburg is a great college town. The educational programs are excellent which makes this college a good choice for parents as well as their children.

This University is one of the most beautiful settings ever. Right off of Route 15, it is worth turning at the red light and driving around campus, especially in the spring when the flowering trees are in bloom, or in the fall when it looks like a postcard from New England.

Whether you come for a sporting, musical or other cultural event this University is the heart of the Lewisburg area -- Traditional brick buildings with beautiful landscape, trees (especially in the autumn) and views from campus make this a must stop and see when passing through Union County.

Good tour, students seem passionate about the school. Got to see a dorm room and classroom, which not all tours provide.

We were there to take a tour and get information. Unfortunately the man who presented the information session did such a poor job that my daughter lost interest in the school and did not want to take the tour. This was our 6th university to visit so we have something to compare it to. It seemed like he thought the... More

If you don't mind driving a little out of the way this is a gorgeous place. Clean, beautiful views and just an all around wonderful place of higher learning. If your child is above average a good choice to attend.

We just returned from a campus visit to Bucknell University and were so impressed with the campus, the community and the surroundings. It is a lovely rolling campus with well-sited buildings and plenty of green space. The university has what they refer to as a "bricks to grass ratio" that ensures plenty of green space even as the college continue... More
