Audience questions

These are questions from the audience that we had time to answer during the live session. If you have any other questions, you can request an answer from Priya and other CollegeVine experts in an upcoming livestream or on the Q&A Forum anytime.
11:35@anonymous:I know that Bucknell is known for its engineering program -- obviously all of the students on the panel are engineering students -- but how do non-engineering students fare there? For example, what about students who want to focus on social sciences? Do they have trouble fitting in? Not taken as seriously?
15:42@anonymous:How are the dorms and dining halls?
24:57@anonymous:Is Bucknell back in class? What's been the response to COVID?
25:04@anonymous: Are internships and co-op opportunities offered ?
29:57@tseionmelaku:Looking back at your applications, what would each of you say the strongest part of it was?
37:58@Poijik_77:Do international students have a chance of getting in?
39:34@anonymous:Conor talked earlier about students that might not like being at Bucknell if they are not comfortable in a rural environment. Can you talk about the on-campus activities that make up for the lack of proximity to cities and more traditional "off-campus" activities?
46:01@anonymous:How would you describe a typical Bucknell college party?
