We look forward to welcoming you to Bucknell so you can experience our beautiful campus and exceptional facilities up-close. Learn more about our visit options below, including the campus Preview, campus and facility tours, lunch visits, A Day in the Life, group tours and special events.
Join one of our admissions counselors for a first-look at how a Bucknell education can change your life.
After the 30 minute Preview, you’ll have the opportunity to tour the campus with a student Admissions Ambassador. You and your family are welcome and should plan to spend around 2 hours on campus.
Bucknell is beautiful and has exceptional facilities. Your student Admissions Ambassador will show you campus and answer your questions about life inside and outside the classroom.
The tour lasts approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
In addition to our regular tours, Bucknell also offers special facility tours so you can get a more in-depth understanding of our programs and facilities.
We offer facility tours for the following areas: arts, athletics, science and engineering.
Meet a current student for lunch at Bostwick Marketplace, Bucknell’s main dining hall. You’ll eat, enjoy a casual conversation and experience everyday student life. Lunch visits are for prospective students only, but your family or other guests can have lunch in the Bison (our a la carte facility) or in downtown Lewisburg. Feel free to ask for suggestions at the Admissions office.

Specific academic interests are featured on select days. If you cannot visit on the day your interest is featured, please consider our other daily visit options.
