Trips, Excursions and Events

The need for students to get outdoors to socialize and learn is more important now than ever, and the BCSE is here to help create those options. From kayaking down the Susquehanna River to birding hikes, we've adapted and developed a wide variety of excursions that are free to current Bucknell students. For a full list of excursions, schedule and to reserve your spot, visit our blog!

    Take Sustainable Action

    Bucknell's student Renewable Energy Scholars don't just dream about a more sustainable tomorrow. We make it happen, today. We've helped bring a zero-impact, "living" greenhouse to explore innovative sustainable technologies, made our campus shuttle more efficient and reduced our waste and carbon footprints by increasing recycling among students. How will you make Bucknell more sustainable?
