It probably started when you were a kid. 

You started questioning why things work the way they do. You began taking apart electronics to see if you could put them back together. You reshot your favorite movie scenes, performed kitchen science experiments or ran a business in your front yard.

In short, you stepped off the beaten path to find your own way. That journey of learning, and all the experiences and discoveries along the way, has been leading you to something great. At Bucknell University, we're ready to help you get there.

When I was applying to college, I was really looking for a school where you have the opportunity to try a little bit of everything. What's amazing about Bucknell is how many students adopt this mindset. So many of my friends are musicians, dancers and/or athletes — and they're amazing scholars as well!
