Even though I visited during winter break, I could imagine the beautiful campus bustling with students who, because of Bucknell's small size, could well know each other. Next time I'm going to get a campus tour.

Worth either a drive through or a walk around. We didn't have a lot of time to spend but enjoyed what we did see.

CMU plummeted from my son's top pick because he said the tour "sucked the life out of him and made him sad." All the students, he felt, seemed miserable and fun seemed to be absent.

Our family's first visit to Bucknell University and the lovely town of Lewisburg couldn't have been more perfect. Absolutely the most beautiful campus we have ever seen with top notch educational opportunities. Definitely do the campus tour; the students were friendly and oh so proud! The quaint downtown area is just blocks from campus, within unique shops and eateries.

It is a clean and good campus. I did not study there but looks to be a good university. The campus is in town so there are a lot of shopping places available.

Well organized Lacrosse Recruiting Tournament run by Coaching Staff at Bucknell.... Boys appreciated air conditioned Dorms after Hot Days on Field. If your team wants tons of lacrosse over 3 Days 10-12 games.... this is a great pick
