“I decided I wanted to pursue chemistry when I was a sophomore in high school. Bucknell offered me the chance to start doing research in my first year, right out of high school, as a Presidential Fellow. ”
The beauty of a liberal arts university like Bucknell is the cross-pollination of ideas and knowledge among departments, which creates unlimited interdisciplinary learning opportunities. None operate in a vacuum, yet each has its own unique character. Professors are able to build an almost-familial sense of camaraderie that extends to their students — with whom many stay in touch long after graduation.

Work together to create encompassing learning experiences.
A distinct giving opportunity
If you're a Bucknell alum, your own department may have a special place in your heart. Or maybe there's a certain area of study that you especially would like to support.
