Thirty years of late night discussions on current events and epic heroes; friendships forged through folk dancing, paper writing and community service; trips to New York City, Washington D.C. and countless other destinations.

During academic year 2016-17, we will share the story of the people who shaped the Res College program and how the program has influenced students' experience at Bucknell. We will highlight the program's signature approach to interdisciplinary teaching and learning and spotlight the achievements of Res College alumni and faculty.

Share in our journey this year as we take a look at what we've accomplished, and imagine what's to come in the next 30 years.
