About Josh Wilkinson

Pronouns: he, him, his

Hometown: Elk City, Okla.

Admissions territories: New York — Long Island (Nassau and Suffolk Counties); Pennsylvania — Northcentral (Bradford, Cameron, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Potter, Snyder, Sullivan, Tioga and Union Counties)

Education: B.A. in English (Creative Writing), Union University; Juris Doctor, Widener University Commonwealth Law School

Favorite spot on campus: Bertrand Library — not only do I have fond memories of completing research and playing with the computers, but I love books and quiet nooks and the library has these in spades. Sometimes I love to just walk the aisles and touch the spines, and find a quiet corner to curl up and read. The availability of resources is great, and I also seem to find surprises just around the corner (VR lab, anyone?).

Favorite Lewisburg restaurant: Tough because there are so many. Right now I'd say Lewisburg Delicatessen. It's an authentic Italian deli with delicious food that makes me feel like I'm back in Long Island.

Top tip for applicants: You're more than your grades and scores. When I'm reading an application, I like to try to find the "heartbeat" of the applicant — what's important to them, what are they passionate about, what's their personality like — and build a narrative around those things. It's exciting to see students' passions and imagine them bringing those to Bucknell!
