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.

Schedule Your Virtual Visit

We look forward to reopening campus to visitors so that you can experience our beautiful campus and exceptional facilities in person.

But until then, we are offering virtual visit options, including information sessions and student ambassador chats, that let you learn more about Bucknell from wherever you are.
