Bucknell is located in northern central PA in the city of Lewisburg, which has a population of 8000. Being fairly isolated and in such a small town makes Bucknell into a self-contained environment. This makes for a classic college experience - everyone lives on or very near campus and most everyone knows each other. The school is very strong academically in the sciences, engineering and business majors. Most students get excellent jobs out of school in NYC, Washington D.C., or Philadelphia and those that choose graduate school have little difficulty getting in. With that said, the school also has an active party scene with sports teams and the greek system being the most active. The school is part of the Patriot League and is competitive in almost every sport.
This school is pretty much what you make it. It's a great place to be if you get involved academically and socially.
