historic Lewisburg, Pa., Bucknell University is an undergraduate-focused
institution that stands uniquely at the intersection of top-ranked liberal
arts, engineering and management programs. Our students choose from more
than 50 majors and 60 minors in the arts, engineering, humanities,
management, and natural and social sciences, as well as extensive global
study, service-learning and research opportunities. Bucknell’s 3,600
undergraduate and 100 graduate students enjoy a low 9:1 student-faculty
ratio and exceptional opportunities to collaborate with faculty mentors.

Bucknell’s beautiful 450-acre campus includes first-rate facilities and is
