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

Beautiful campus!!! Exceeded expectations. Our student tour guide was terrific! Very friendly staff. Just wished it had been at least 15 degrees warmer.

Despite sub-zero temperatures, we loved Bucknell! Athletic facilities were top-notch as were the engineering programs we toured. The admission staff were very helpful in pointing us in the right direction for things that were not included on the tour. We hope to be back again!

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. The tour itself was a superficial sprint. But Bucknell went from a let's-just-go-it-because-friends-mine-went-there to, Wow! It's a liberal arts school which is not what my... More

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.
