Bison Gatherings are traditionally held at the homes of Bucknell parents and families across the country. These gatherings offer a great opportunity for incoming first-year students and their families to meet one another and interact with current Bucknell students, parents and alumni.

A University representative will attend and provide comprehensive information about the New Student Orientation program and answer questions about what to expect the first few days on campus.
