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.

Visit Options: In-person and Virtual

We have two options for families wanting to visit Bucknell: in-person information sessions followed by a guided tour and virtual visits.

In-person Information Sessions and Guided Tours 

  • Oct. 5 to Nov. 10: Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays at 9:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.
  • Due to an increase in positive COVID-19 cases on campus, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel campus visits from Monday, October 26 through Friday, October 30. This will allow us to mitigate the spread on campus as well as protect your and your family's health. Please check our website for virtual programming this week.

Pre-registration is required. To register and learn more about preparing for your in-person visit, click the link below.
