Athletics & Recreation
Committed to Academic & Athletic Excellence
Bucknell has one of the largest varsity programs in the country, with 27 teams competing in the Division I Patriot League. But many more of our students compete in recreational sports through an extensive intramural program. It consists of more than 40 men’s, women’s and co-recreational teams – from basketball and golf to tennis and volleyball. Many students enjoy the friendly competition provided by the 20 student-initiated and student-run club sports, ranging from cycling and rugby to crew and Ultimate Frisbee.
Our athletics facilities, among the finest anywhere, include a state-of-the art fitness center that is open most days from 6 a.m. to midnight as well as an Olympic-class pool and an 18-hole golf course.
