Bucknell University has a nice campus with a lot of great buildings. It is very scenic and is a first rate school. My son, my wife, and I really enjoyed our campus tour and met some very friendly people. However, all this niceness comes with a cost and it's a whopping $64,000 a year on average. That is not a...

I came here for a college visit with a prospective student and was very impressed with the nice facilities that are available to the students, faculty and staff at Bucknell. From the Athletic Buildings to the Classroom Buildings and the student union, everything at Bucknell is top notch! As pointed out by another reviewer, it is expensive to attend Bucknell... More

This was kind of interesting to drive through. There's nothing really special here but I did like a lot of the buildings.

Bucknell is a great university, especially the engineering program. However it comes at a high price! Check out the internet for current tuition, room and board and you will see that one either has to have some serious cash to go here or be eligible for grants/scholarships. The campus is first-rate as far as the quality of the facilities and... More

For decades I have wanted to visit Bucknell. Our son was accepted to study there which prompted us to make our first visit there. A morning run through the campus and athletic fields gave me a first hand opportunity to see the campus and learn its history. Set in a valley framed by hills to the north and west, the... More

This is a great school with a great educational reputation. I sent two of my children here and it was worth every penny.

I had a fabulous time spending time with other Alumni. The game festivities were great, and our campus is lovely in the fall.

We recently finished a week of college tours, and Bucknell University was truly a stand-out for many reasons. We were able to do a special engineering tour, which included a tour of the engineering classrooms and labs. The tour guide was a chemical engineering student who shared interesting information about her undergraduate research. In addition, three students toured us around... More

If you are looking for a quiet, low key university where you can spend quiet nights studying then you'd enjoy Bucknell. Situated in quiet Lewisburg, PA you're a good hour and half to two hours from most major cities. While life on campus is not exactly quiet, you can ALWAYS find something to do! There are parties, concerts, sporting events,... More
