Brigit Falcon ’15

Madeline Diamond and Doug Hendry, News Editor and Sports Editor

Brigit Falcon ’15 grew up balancing competitive soccer and champion-level Irish dancing before she started managing both athletics and academics at the University. Falcon is majoring in accounting and financial management and has made the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

“During the recruiting process, my main focus was academics. I was definitely more focused on the academic side than the athletic side of programs. Bucknell happened to be the perfect balance of both,” Falcon said.

For Falcon, balancing her schedule has become second nature.

“It’s the sort of thing you don’t think about, you just do it,” she said.

Falcon believes that the soccer team supports each other in terms of athletics, academics and personal life. Her coach also keeps in contact with the players, informing them of tutoring opportunities.
