About Bucknell University
Bucknell University is a private liberal arts college in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.
Founded in 1846 as the University of Lewisburg, the university now consists of the College of Arts and Sciences, the Freeman College of Management, and the College of Engineering. It offers 65 majors and over 70 minors in the humanities, arts, mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, management, as well as pre-professional counseling and programs that prepare students for the study of law and medicine.
Located just south of Lewisburg, the 445-acre campus towers above the West Branch of the Susquehanna River. Approximately 3,700 undergraduate and 50 graduate students attend the university. Students come from all fifty US states and more than 66 countries.
The university has nearly 200 student organizations and notable Greek letter organizations. The school is a member of the Patriot League in NCAA Division I athletics, and its mascot is the Bison. On April 17, 1849 the trustees approved the present Bucknell brand.
The seal shows the sun, an open book and waves. The sun symbolizes the light of knowledge while the book represents education overcoming the storms and waves of life. Bucknell’s colors are orange and blue, approved by a student committee in 1887.
The bison is the current mascot of Bucknell University. In 1923 Dr. William Bartol suggested the animal because of Bucknell’s location in the Buffalo Valley. Bucknell is a member of the Patriot League for Division I sports (Division I FCS in soccer).
Bucknell’s traditional opponents include Lafayette College, Holy Cross, Lehigh University, Colgate University and American University. Photo Credits: Bucknell University website
