The BUCC featured on the cover of The New York Times Magazine

The Bucknell University Conservatives Club, or BUCC, is a student organization at Bucknell University founded in 2001 to promote conservative and libertarian ideas.


The Counterweight

The BUCC publishes a monthly magazine, The Counterweight. The paper has advanced such issues as: criticizing Bucknell's perceived liberal bias, its speech code, and addressing administrative waste.

The Counterweight won the Leadership Institute's Campus Leadership Award for Best Campus Conservative Paper in the Country in 2004-2005. It was named Paper of the Year by the Collegiate Network for the 2006-2007 school year, and was runner-up for the same award in 2004-2005.


The BUCC also hosts many events each year. It has sponsored speeches at Bucknell by John Ashcroft, Ben Stein, John Stossel, Walter E. Williams, Ward Connerly, Christopher Hitchens, Rick Santorum and others. The group has also orchestrated protests against the Vagina Monologues, collected items to send to soldiers serving in Iraq, and created an abortion graveyard. The group is also known for its 9/11 Flag Memorial.


The BUCC was featured on the cover of the New York Times Magazine, and has received media attention from TIME Magazine, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, the National Review, CNN, MTV, Fox News, MSNBC, NPR, the Laura Ingraham Show, and others.
