At Bucknell, you not only find lifelong friends, but also become part of the greater Bucknell community. Bucknellians share a camaraderie unlike any other. It's awesome to meet a fellow Bucknellian for the first time and feel as though you are in the presence of an old friend. Did I mention the education? The education was pretty valuable, too.
