LEWISBURG, Pa. — One theme pulsing through several of June's top web stories: "new."
There's the brand-new Barnes & Noble at Bucknell University Bookstore, which opened its doors this past weekend in downtown Lewisburg.
And then there are the newest members of the Bucknell community, the 925-member Class of 2014, some of whom were highlighted in a three-part summer web series.
The Class of '14 and bookstore stories were easily among the most-read stories of the month. The 2014 series alone has already topped more than 8,300 reader views since being published.
In order of reader views, here are the month's top five stories.
