Matt Segar '12 Gifts to the Bison Club are essential to the success of Bucknell Athletics. The University only covers part of the budget for varsity programs. Private gifts ensure that each team can provide travel, accommodations, and post-season play for all athletes. Without donor support, my team, Swimming and Diving, would not have been able to compete at US Nationals and Olympic Trials, two of the highest-level competitions in the country."
