Our alumni include an English major who's a top stem-cell researcher and an engineering major who has won two Academy Awards for visual effects. With a Bucknell degree, you'll be prepared for a flexible and daring career and a fulfilling life.

Who We Are

Bucknell is about more than picturesque buildings and high-tech equipment. For more than 170 years, the community of Bucknellians — students, faculty, staff, donors and alumni — have defined our character.

In our "Bucknell stories" collection, you'll meet a management student who was named a Forbes Under 30 Scholar, a physics & astronomy professor who discovered a free-floating planet and an engineering alumnus who designed a cookstove that's cheaper and better for the environment than anything ever created.

Where You’ll Go From Here

Whether you arrive at Bucknell with a clear goal in mind or are still undecided, one thing is certain: As a Bucknell graduate, you'll leave here ready to conquer whatever comes next.

For some of our graduates, that means an interesting career with a company like Deloitte, ESPN, Google, L'Oréal, NBC Universal, PwC or Yelp. For others, it's admission into a top graduate school, law school or medical school. No matter your dream, Bucknell will help you get there.
