Bucknell Virtual Experience

This is not another virtual campus tour.

Inside the Bucknell Virtual Experience, you'll gain a better understanding of everything that makes Bucknell unique — like our high-tech labs, state-of-the-art performance venues and picture-perfect study spots. And you'll do it by stepping into these spots yourself to take a look around.

The Bucknell Virtual Experience can be enjoyed in a web browser or using an Oculus virtual reality headset.

You control the action — looking left, right, up and down to explore one of 10 visual exhibits about Bucknell. Visit a chemistry lab. Head to center court at Sojka Pavilion during a basketball game. Or peek inside Bertrand Library as students study.

As you travel between exhibits, you'll get a feel for the places that make Bucknell and Lewisburg special through artistically rendered details taken from real life. You'll see downtown Lewisburg's three-globe lampposts, the Rooke Science Center dome, the iconic clock tower atop Bertrand Library and more.

Enough talk; let's begin.
