LEWISBURG, Pa. — It topped the most popular stories in September and it's back as the most popular story in October.
The story is the annual package of profiles of tenure-track faculty who joined Bucknell University's ranks of teacher-scholars this fall. As in September, it was by leaps and bounds ahead of the pack in the monthly rankings.
And as part of a three-part package profiling the University's faculty recently promoted to full professor and associate professor, the package remains one of the most popular features on the entire Bucknell website.
