Bucknell University is a private liberal arts university located alongside the West Branch Susquehanna River in the town of Lewisburg, in central Pennsylvania, United States. The university consists of the College of Arts and Sciences, School of Management, and the College of Engineering. Bucknell was founded in 1846, and features programs in engineering, management, education, and music, as well as programs and pre-professional advising that prepare students for study in law and medicine. It has almost 50 majors and over 60 minors. In its 2012 edition of America's Best Colleges, Bucknell was ranked 29th among all schools in the United States in the "National Liberal Arts Colleges" category by U.S. News & World Report. This ranking was upheld by U.S. News & World Report after revelations that Bucknell's SAT scores had been misreported for 6 years.

It is primarily an undergraduate school (with 3,500 students), and 150 graduate students on the campus. Students come from all 50 states and from more than 66 international countries. Bucknell has nearly 200 student organizations and a large Greek presence. The school's mascot is Bucky the Bison and the school is a member of the Patriot League in Division I athletics.
