Greek life is a huge presence. There are many sororities and fraternities on campus. At Bucknell there is a delayed rush system where students cannot rush until their sophomore year. I think that this is a really good thing to have because of the time it gives freshman to consider their options. Although Greek life is very prominent, there is not pressure to join any of them and being an independent does not prevent you from joining in on campus activities and parties.

Bucknell is a big party school and it is not that hard to find students drinking at these parties on the weekends. There is not pressure from other students to partake in these activities and there is other things to do on campus when these parties are going on. It is a prominent thing on campus that you can see if you walk around a little bit when parties are going on, however, there are policies in place at the school that regulate it and urge students to drink safely.

Bucknell is a school where a majority of the community is white. As a student that is a minority on campus, it can sometimes be hard to integrate themselves into a community such as this.

Parking is difficult on campus. There are parking lots and parking spaces on campus, however, spots fill up quickly and finding a spot may be difficult. If you want to get off campus occasionally, having a car would be convenient. Getting off campus without a car is difficult unless its walking distance from the school. The student permit costs $100 which would not be much if we weren't frugal college students, but we are so it may seem like a lot.

It is difficult to get off-campus at Bucknell. Besides the shuttle that goes to Walmart, there is no real way to get off campus. There are the zipcars, however, there are a few compared to the number of students there are on campus that may need to use one. It is nice that there is a shuttle from campus at the start and end of breaks that will take students that are going home to the Boston and New York area, providing a convenient way to get back home during the breaks.

There are a lot of housing options on campus and it is really easy to find the housing style you're looking for. Of course the best housing goes to upperclassmen, however, there are good options for underclassmen as well.

While everything at Bucknell is relatively close, so it is easy to live off campus and still feel part of everything, housing options are terrible. All the houses look like they are ready to fall down with the next Hurricane Sandy, and after years of extreme house parties are equally as gross on the inside. Also, with the added efforts of Braveman to get everyone on campus (building new houses on campus), Psafe and the Lewisburg PD have been cracking down on parties.

Varsity Sports are pretty big at Bucknell, and there are club sports for almost every sport offered at the varsity level. Being D1, athletics are taken pretty seriously by the athletes, and if it is basketball, the fans too. Other than that though, the teams do not usually have a huge crowd, which is unfortunate.

The school is not too constricting. Alcohol abuse is taken quite seriously here, but that is about it. I'm not sure about academics because my grades have never been below a B. I'm sure there are disciplinary actions, but I am not sure.

Bucknell has many computers in the library and in most labs. The printing quota on campus is quite a bit so you never really have to worry about hitting it. The internet is fast in most places except in some dorms it is not as reliable. I would recommend bringing an internet cable if you want to increase your speed. Nonetheless, I feel like you do not really necessarily need a personal computer or printer. The library also loans out laptops and many other equipment.

There are definitely diverse students on campus, but the school is still predominantly white. With that said, the university is trying its best to promote diversity and support diverse events throughout campus. However, most of the students that attend these events tend to be international students. The rest of the population seems to not always care enough to attend. Therefore, it is faults of the students as well.

Would be an A+, but the school administration has been trying to squash greek life for some time now. House party weekend was just cancelled, and Public Safety and Lewisburg PD are becoming stricter. That being said, I am in greek life and couldn't imagine having a better time. The people are great and the parties are still awesome. The administration can try to get rid of us, but tradition is unbreakable.
