ISS Welcomes You
Welcome to all international students, scholars, visitors and their families. The International Student Services staff hopes that you will enjoy your stay at Bucknell and that you will use the resources of our office whenever necessary to resolve your problems and concerns, or to enhance your experience in this country. Elsewhere on this web site are descriptions of programs and services offered.
International Student Services is committed to the internationalization of Bucknell University by providing support and services to meet the unique needs of international students and the international campus constituency. ISS seeks to enhance the academic, cultural and social pursuits of students from abroad through cultural programs and services in advising, admissions, immigration and recruitment.
Through educational programs such as International Student Orientation and International Education Week, ISS strives throughout the year to promote cross-cultural awareness by establishing an environment where everyone involved can appreciate, celebrate and learn about their own cultures as well as those of the people around them. We hope to serve as a friendly source of information for Bucknell, the greater Lewisburg and surrounding area to answer questions and enthusiastically promote the benefits of international study and exchange.
ISS welcomes all Bucknellians with an interest in different cultures to participate in programs and use the office resources and Cultural Center Lounge. ISS promotes a campus climate that allows positive educational experiences to occur across cultures, both inside and outside the classroom. The office and Cultural Center Lounge is located on the first floor of Vedder Hall. Our typical office environment is informal and you are encouraged to call our staff by our first names. You are welcome to walk-in with questions or concerns, but if you wish to discuss a delicate matter, we encourage you to make an appointment in advance. We wish you the best during your time at Bucknell and look forward to working with you.
