It's our job to push you. Hard. But while we're challenging your intellect, we'll also support you academically so you can learn a lot, and learn well. Here are the resources available to you:

Important Tips for Success

  • Attend all classes! If you are too ill to attend class, notify your professor and, if appropriate, go to Bucknell Student Health.
  • Manage your time: You should spend approximately 40 hours each week studying outside of class time, so use the time between classes wisely.
  • Find a good place to study: A quiet place, free from distractions (including your electronics!), is necessary for concentration. Consider the library, open classrooms, and study lounges.
  • Seek out those who can help - a faculty member, an adviser, an academic associate dean or a campus life resource. We'll support you! Go to office hours with faculty or make an appointment with associate deans or staff members. We want you to succeed.

At Bucknell, your writing will improve.

If you need someone to work through ideas with you or advise you on your writing, the Writing Center can help. Professional staff and peer tutors are available to work with writers of all skill levels.

Graduate School Advising

Faculty advisors will help you decide if graduate school is right for you, point to schools you might explore and link to information and resources in your discipline.

Engineering Success Alliance

Because high school resources vary, some students need more support than others after they arrive on campus. Our Engineering Success Alliance offers mentoring and guidance to talented engineering students from under-resourced high schools.
