Get to know the diverse, dynamic Class of 2022.

They've founded charities, created their own businesses — and even, in one case, played on the Latvian National Men's Lacrosse Team.

They're the newest members of the Bucknell community, and all 976 students, representing 30 states and 46 nations, were officially welcomed to the University during Matriculation, held Sunday, Aug. 19.

Noting that "we are all family now," Dean of Admissions Kevin Mathes '07 also highlighted the students' varied interests and experiences, from service in the Civil Air Patrol to proficiency on Chinese zither.

"These students will make their mark on Bucknell and the world," Mathes added. "I can't wait to see what they achieve."
