The Bucknellian is Bucknell’s online/weekly print student newspaper, published 12 times per semester on Fridays. Originally named The Orange and Blue, The Bucknellian was started in 1896, making it one of the oldest student activities on campus. Today, the paper has a print circulation of 2000, runs two six-page sections — each with color on the front and back — and appears in this web version.
The Bucknellian serves a readership that includes students, faculty, administrators, trustees, parents, alumni and local residents. Students run the editorial and business sides of the paper; they make all decisions about policy, editorial content, advertising and marketing, and they manage their own budget. Students design and lay out the paper at The Bucknellian offices in the newly renovated student media space, Stuck House. The paper is printed in Sunbury, Pa. at the printing press of The Daily Item.
