Favorite Bucknell moment: Move-in day for new students. The excitement in the air is palpable. The campus has been waiting to welcome and to meet our new students. The work of the admissions team is brought to life on that day! Students and their families arrive with feelings of hope, excitement, a little trepidation, and anxiousness for a new beginning.
Top tip for applicants: Make sure to take the time to curate your application to best highlight your story. Effectively use your personal statement and any supplemental writing to show who you are. Contemplate and include all you've done during your years in high school. Your application is your educational story, and we are so excited to get to know you.
