A Century of ExcellenceFall 2022 Magazine Cover

2023 marks 100 years since the first woman — Katherine Owens Hayden — graduated from Bucknell with an engineering degree. In this issue, you'll read about the powerful ways past and current Bucknell women engineers are making a lasting impact on our University, their communities and the world — while also paving the way for future generations.

Meanwhile, in the Freeman College of Management, accounting professor Kate Suslava is decoding business leaders' jargon. What do they really mean when they use words and phrases like "headwinds," "rightsizing" and "contracted margins"? Her groundbreaking research analyzes how executives' words affect analyst perception and stock performance.

For 50 years, the Bucknell West complex — aka the Mods — provided a homey atmosphere and (almost) independent living to Bucknellians. As the University prepares to replace the units with a modernized residential complex, generations of residents are sharing their fondest memories of life in the Mods. Read their stories and learn how you can own a piece of the Mods' history yourself.
