Over 700 Bucknellians served in the Great War.

These Bucknellians answered President Woodrow Wilson's call for Americans to fight for democracy, justice and the rights of small nations; more than 30 lost their lives in defense of these noble principles. A century later, the Bucknellians in World War I project — a faculty-student teaching and research initiative — seeks to remember these brave individuals through their stories, experiences and sacrifice.
