To Schedule: No appointment is necessary to join a campus tour.
Only on campus for a few hours?
Be our guest for a lunch visit. Enjoy a meal at the Bostwick Cafeteria with one of our students. This is an excellent opportunity to interact with a Bucknell student in a casual atmosphere.

A Day in the Life
Designed for high school seniors, Bucknell University's A Day in the Life experience provides an opportunity to experience a typical day at Bucknell by observing a class, meeting with faculty, having lunch with a Bucknell student, and talking with Admissions personnel. The A Day in the Life experience is available Monday through Friday when classes are in session.
College of Arts and Sciences
The College of Arts and Sciences includes more than 50 majors, professional and pre-professional programs. Different academic groupings are offered each day of the week. Please check the calendar day on which you would like to visit to view the available major listings for that day or scroll down this page to view the entire week. If your major interest is offered on a day that you are not able to visit, please consider a preview session and/or campus tour which are available Monday through Saturdays most weeks of the year.
Students who are undecided are encouraged to select a major for which they have an interest and visit on that day.
College of Engineering
With approximately 194 engineering students entering Bucknell each year, we take great pride in the close relationships our faculty develop with our students. Along with small classroom sizes, Bucknell's undergraduate engineering facilities are among the best in the nation. We encourage high school seniors to come and see for themselves.
Specific academic interests are featured on select days. Please check the Visitation Calendar to find your particular area of interest. If you cannot visit on the day your potential major is featured, please consider our other daily visit options: a tour and/or a preview session.
Please note that a minimum of two weeks advance notice is required for high school seniors to take part in the A Day in the Life experience.
To Schedule: Appointments are required for Bucknell's A Day in the Life experience. Please call the Office of Admissions at 570-577-3000 to schedule a Day in the Life experience.
In addition to our regular tours, Bucknell also offers Special Facility Tours.
Our facility tours - highlighting the Arts, Engineering, the Sciences, and Athletics - provide students with a more in-depth look at facilities and programs on campus than what is covered during the regular campus tour.
To Schedule: No appointment is necessary for Special Facility Tours. Be certain to check specific calendar dates for availability.
Self-Guided Tour packets are available for times when the Admissions Office is not open. These packets can be found in the outer lobby of Freas Hall (Office of Admissions).
