We took our daughter to orientation and it was an amazing experience. They made a difficult transition so much more comfortable. The people of Bucknell are just amazing!!

Bucknell has one of the most gorgeous campus settings I've ever seen. The professors my son has had are amazing. The town is small but the campus has many activities. Do not attend if you need much financial aid as they are not terribly generous and do not meet need. Very good school though.

Came for a football camp and a little tour. We never received the tour but the campus looked beautiful. The camp was shorter than most and didn't cover anything new. For $80 felt a slighted.

We took a walk and a car ride through the campus. It made we want to go back to school and experience campus life and this school. Everything looked very inviting. It caused me to Google the school and find out a lot more about it. Very impressive!

The campus is very picturesque with a real Ivy League feel. It seems to be a classic storybook small college. We took a tour of the superior athletic facilities. The football field and baseball field are stunning. The website boast that their student athletes actually graduate. All the students were friendly and helpful. Seems like a great place to go...

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.
