Welcome to Bucknell.

We're looking for curious and passionate students to join our community of explorers, artists and innovators. We'll take your entire experience into consideration when reviewing your application, and we'd like you to get to know us better as well.

Plan a visit, explore our majors and minors, and see how we'll take your education beyond the classroom.

When you have a question, please contact us. We're here to help.

Update About Spring Visits

Bucknell is continuously tracking the status of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and working to mitigate potential risks it poses. The safety of students — both current and future — as well as our faculty and staff is our top priority. 

As such, we have cancelled:

  • On-campus visits, including tours and preview programs, through April 30, at which point we may adjust our policies to reflect the status of the public health situation
  • Enrolled Student Day (March 21)
  • Gateway to Bucknell (March 28)
  • Admitted Student Day (April 18)

We will be contacting prospective students about virtual visit experiences. In the meantime, we encourage you to learn more about Bucknell, visit our YouTube channel and follow @iamraybucknell, our student-run Instagram account.
