Bring an umbrella or raincoat, or plan to purchase one when you get here. Also, bring or plan to buy a heavy winter coat and boots because it can get very cold in the winter. It may be cheaper to buy a wool or leather jacket at home, but if you come from a country that doesn't have snow, you may want to wait to buy things here that will be the appropriate weight and length for the local weather conditions. Generally, people dress very informally, however, occasionally you may be invited to dinners or receptions and then more formal clothing is appropriate.
It is also suggested that you bring a pillow and bed linen. Your residence hall room is not equipped with these items. A shopping trip is planned the second day of your arrival. Bed linen, pillows, and blankets can be purchased for a modest cost at the local shopping mall, but if you must have a pillow and linen for these first few nights you should pack accordingly.
Consider buying a laptop computer if you plan to have a computer at Bucknell. Electronic storage at the University is limited.
