BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT CHOOSING TO GO HERE! I visited the summer before my senior year. The gorgeous campus drew me in. By the end of the tour, my mom and I fell in love with the school. I applied ED1 and got in (but didn't get a penny of scholarship money :/). I chose the school because of its great academics, beautiful campus, nice facilities, and proximity to home. I DID NOT ASSESS THE SOCIAL ASPECT! I figured that friends would come on their own as long as I wasn't in my dorm all day everyday. It turns out that despite my efforts, I cannot make friends here and I feel like I don't fit in. I talked to a counselor (at least Bucknell has a good student development center) and she said that I should consider transferring. She told me that a lot of people put on a mask to fit in with the crowd and that friendships are often superficial. If you're like me (a shy introvert with a hatred of partying/drinking and a need for one or two close friends instead of a bunch of casual ones), DO NOT GO HERE! I'm so lonely here that I might even transfer in the fall.That being said, the social aspect is the only problem I have with the school, so if you're not like me, you'll fit right in and I HIGHLY recommend it. The professors are awesome, the food's alright, the gym is great (I was able to start working out thanks to the free group fitness classes offered there), and the dorms are nice.
