Journey to Bucknell is an overnight program designed to expose high-achieving, traditionally underrepresented (African American, Asian American, biracial/multiracial, Latino/a, Native American, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander) high school seniors to Bucknell University.

The 2018 program will take place from Nov. 4-6.

Prospective students can experience life as a Bucknell student by

  • staying overnight in one of our residence halls
  • attending fall Open House to learn more about academic and social opportunities
  • meeting faculty, staff, and current Bucknell students
  • exploring our beautiful campus

Journey to Bucknell is free for students who are chosen to attend (travel expenses including flights and shuttles to and from campus, overnight accommodations with a current student and all meals while on campus).
