Originally named The Orange and Blue, The Bucknellian serves a readership that includes students, faculty, administrators, trustees, parents, alumni and local residents. Students run the editorial and business sides of the paper; make all decisions about policy, editorial content, advertising and marketing; and they manage their own budget.
