Your educational journey at Bucknell will begin with a Common Reading. It's a way for you to explore, make intellectual connections and experience the vibrant community you are joining.
We want the Common Reading to resonate throughout your first year and beyond. During New Student Orientation, you'll meet in small groups to discuss the book. Performances and talks relating to the Common Reading will continue throughout the year to weave the book's themes into your experience.
Class of 2028 students will receive their book in the mail over the summer with instructions for several assignments that will prepare them for the group discussions during New Student Orientation.
