From the moment you get to Bucknell (and sometimes even before), you'll start exploring amazing undergraduate research opportunities. Bucknell is your chance to work with faculty and fellow students on real problems with real outcomes. Our students often say these projects are among their most memorable and meaningful academic experiences. We're pretty sure your graduate school or first employer will be impressed with the experience you gained during your time at Bucknell.

Location, Location, Location

Our surrounding area and facilities help open up a world of opportunities you won't find anywhere else. Maybe your research will take you out on the Susquehanna River that flows past Bucknell. Or perhaps you'll stay on campus to use our 600 MHz nuclear magnetic resonance imager (we're one of just a few undergraduate institutions in the country to have one).

You could be among our many undergrads who work alongside doctors and health professionals at Geisinger Health System to solve the real-world medical challenges they face every day. Or your search for answers could mean traveling well beyond Lewisburg. From Alaska to Australia, our students crisscross the globe working with faculty mentors on various research projects.
