Bucknell University provided an idyllic college experience. The classes are small, professors are very accessible, the student body is close knit (albeit largely from upper middle class northeastern families), and safety was never a concern. I enjoyed my time there!

College was a crazy learning experience. From learning how to live on my own, creating my own balanced meals, doing my own laundry, and just growing up in general, I learned a lot. Needless to mention the classes I had were mostly small, so I was able to learn quite a bit from my discussion based courses. Also, played D1 sports, so had to learn how to really manage my time in order to keep my grades up.
