Anyone who is a Bucknell sophomore can apply to participate in K-WIDE.

We do not reveal the project theme until the December orientation (after you have committed to the program). The rational is that we would like you to join K-WIDE for what you will get out of the program rather than the project. Each theme is very broad and teams work together to find a project that is mutually agreeable.

Housing is closed during winter break but you can get permission to stay in your dorm by filling out this online form.
