College review by Lisa Bleich
Preppy, work hard-play hard mentality describes the Bucknell student body. We were there on a cold, rainy day, but it did not take away from the beauty of the campus with brick buildings and plenty of green open space. Bucknell has a fairly large Greek system which dominates the social life, but there are also a lot of concerts and events planned by the student body. Sports are big in Bucknell and many students participate.
The shoe of choice for girls was “wellies”, brightly colored rain boots and boys looked like the stepped out of a J. Crew catalog. Students were homogeneous but seemed happy. The academics are difficult and the selectivity is high.
