By Way of Bucknell. It isn’t a tagline, but rather a theme — a summation of what more than 1,400 students, faculty, staff, alumni and parents described in one way or another when asked: "What makes us distinct?" It is by way of Bucknell that our students grow in profound ways, that they obtain knowledge, that they go out into the world and achieve meaningful personal and professional success. This is our story. Together, let's tell it to the world!

Who we are

As an undergraduate institution, Bucknell stands uniquely at the intersection of top-ranked liberal arts, engineering and management programs. In our classrooms and across our living-learning community, deeply engaged faculty challenge students to push themselves intellectually, grow personally and live their passions. Through the experiences and opportunities we offer, students here make lifelong connections and build a strong network — one that stands ready to help Bucknellians as they forge their own meaningful paths to a lifetime of personal and professional success.
