What makes the ideal setting for four years of college?
A Gorgeous Campus

Bucknell students say our campus is a perfectly picturesque place to live, learn and make world-changing discoveries. In fact, The Princeton Review, which ranks universities based on student surveys, called Bucknell one of the country’s 10 “most beautiful campuses.”

A Perfect College Town
Like Bucknell itself, Lewisburg is neither too big nor too small. So you won’t get stuck in traffic or run out of things to do. Lewisburg’s safe, walkable downtown is just a few blocks from campus and features cafés, trendy boutiques and our three-story campus bookstore.
A Convenient Location
Central Pennsylvania is ideally located, meaning adventures await in every direction. Spend an afternoon at a nearby state park, historic battlefield or museum. Or take a weekend getaway to New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore or Washington, D.C. — each just three hours away.

The Bucknell experience extends beyond your classes. You’ll make lasting friendships as you compete, volunteer and kick back together. With more than 200 student-run clubs and organizations to choose from, you’ll deepen existing passions and uncover new ones.

And what if you don’t find the exact club you’re after? We’ll give you funding to start your own. When Hamza Shittu ’21, a computer science major from Capitol Heights, Md., arrived at Bucknell, he wanted to start a guitar club where students could meet, learn and perform together. Bucknell gave his new group funding to purchase guitars, and Amp Soul Guitarists was born.

“I was able to find my niche,” Hamza says. “This is a space that I created — a platform for students who want to learn, people who already play and people who have been playing for years.”
