"I'm glad I picked the liberal arts because I can take whatever classes I want. Instead of concentrating on one subject, I'm focusing on four – econ, English, math and Chinese. I'm getting a better picture of the world as a whole."
"You get a really good education here. The class sizes are small, and the professors really care about whether or not you learn the material. Bucknell also gave me the best financial aid package. I'm a presidential fellow, which means that I get a generous scholarship and also get paid to do research throughout the year."
"I planned to focus on English because it provides so many opportunities to read about the human experience and investigate trends throughout history. But when I took an econ class, I realized it was a subject that combines a lot of my skills — I'm pretty good at math, and I like how econ is so analytic. So I am majoring in both, and I love it. I'm thinking about minoring in math and Chinese as well. I tutor other students in Mandarin, and I'm also a teaching assistant for microeconomics.
"Last year, I was accepted into the Institute for Leadership and Technology Management, which is a very selective summer program that combines engineering and management. ILTM is the one of the best things I've done at Bucknell. I got to meet a lot of really smart people and get different perspectives from all kinds of fields. We learned about many topics — management, ethics, globalization, communication and much more. Recently I helped redesign the ILTM website, which taught me a lot about web design and content management."
"I decided to try writing for The Bucknellian as a freshman, and now I am associate editor of content. It allows me to hone my writing skills while providing the campus with valuable information. And it's fun to meet different people and learn what's important to them. I'm also a member of "The Weis Guys," a student group that encourages other students to participate in the arts on campus and attend performances at the Weis Center. And I like the social activities offered through CHOICE, which is a substance-free residential hall. Last fall, we went to Penn's Cave and a local corn maze, which was really fun."
