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.
