Colin HassellAs class president, I have had the opportunity to work with a group of individuals and learn what it takes to be successful as the leader of a cohesive unit. The public speaking, organizational and collaborative aspects of student government have given me the ability to excel in areas outside of my academic focus and helped me become a well-rounded leader. Being able to hone these skills while still in college will be invaluable as I embark upon my professional life.  - Colin Hassell '15, mechanical engineering

Help Them Excel

Bucknell students do more than demonstrate command of classroom materials. They develop the leadership skills necessary to command teams, companies, government organizations - you name it. We offer myriad opportunities that complement our academic program and challenge students to grow in new ways. Here they manage real stock portfolios, volunteer in impoverished countries, start businesses, and excel in academic and athletic competition.

These tangible experiences build the confidence and character needed for post-graduation success. And when we give tomorrow's leaders the tools to be successful, we also strengthen Bucknell's reputation as a top liberal arts university.
