Self-guided Campus Tour

You've found the companion website for Bucknell University's Self-guided Tour. The audio narration below is designed to be enjoyed alongside the Self-guided Tour booklet available at our Office of Admissions.

If you're on campus and would like to pick up the booklet, stop by Freas Hall on Dent Drive and request a copy at the Office of Admissions front desk. If the office is closed, booklets can be found just inside the vestibule to Freas Hall. You can also find a digital version of the booklet below.

We hope you enjoy this self-guided tour, which we see as the perfect metaphor for the Bucknell experience. We give you the tools and the support you need to explore whatever interests you most.

Before You Begin

  • The tour starts outside Freas Hall (1 Dent Drive) and includes eight stops.
  • The route is paved, just under a mile in length and includes one moderately steep downhill section. (To avoid the hill, skip Stop 6.)
  • The accompanying audio narration totals about 20 minutes.

Meet the Student Narrators

Your audio tour guides are three Bucknell students who are eager to share their personal experiences inside the buildings you're about to see.
