FIRST YEAR BISON
Garrett College alumnus, Liutauras Repsys, is nearing the end of his first year of studies in the field of biology at Bucknell University. Liu was awarded the transfer scholarship to Bucknell following his participation in the BCCS summer program in 2017 and completion of his Associate of Arts – Arts & Sciences (Math/Science concentration) degree at GC in May 2018. Liu's first year at Bucknell has been both a challenging and rewarding experience as he tackled numerous demanding courses along with work as a barista at Bucknell's 7th Street Café. He plans to spend the summer at home in Lithuania and return to Bucknell for his final year this fall where he will begin his new job as a Residential Assistant. Liu was a former Garrett Laker men's basketball player, and was named 2018 Male Scholar - Athlete of the Year.
