The goal of the BuckWild program is to help with the transition into university life. The first year at a university is the most critical and often perceived as the most challenging in any student's mind. University can be tough because of meeting new people, fitting into a new community, adapting to a new culture,and navigating the the first-time freedom you have making decisions.

Our goal is to help with these potential issues by working to build a support network for you. We want to provide you with resources to help, if and when you struggle, plus provide personal confidence building and challenging experience in the outdoors before the rigors and trials of the school year begin. We believe this experience will aid you in making smart decisions during your first year and help you manage academic, social, personal-emotional, institutional adjustment, and beyond!!

Bucknell University is known for providing its students with a world-class education. We also want to help students succeed both inside and outside of the classroom. Today's graduates will leave Bucknell not only with a tremendous education, but also with strong leadership, communication, and problem solving skills -- whether in the backcountry, the classroom, the boardroom, or the lab.

BuckWild and Outdoor Education and Leadership will be your first step toward a successful Bucknell experience and ultimately graduation.
