Introducing the New Bucknell.edu

Bucknell's newly redesigned website is live! Your patience has been invaluable throughout the process of building the new site — and it will be appreciated even more as bugs and errors are addressed over the next one or two months.

This bucknell.edu site looks and feels different, but it's different in another important way, too. Instead of launching a brand-new website every few years, you'll see regular releases of new features, improvements and enhancements — just like an app updates on your phone. Some of these releases will include an enhanced calendar function and new content showcasing labs and learning spaces on campus.

Check the website blog for news about features and releases 

This beautiful new website won't go away in a few years. It'll just keep getting better, with your help.

Throughout the fall semester, Communications will schedule meetings with each campus department to go over your new web pages and discuss your needs.

See the website feedback meeting plan

Before your meeting with Communications, make notes in a Google Doc about what you'd like to discuss. You'll need to share the Google Doc with your Communications representative at least one week before the scheduled meeting so the appropriate colleagues are included in the discussion.
