What You’ll Do
Guided by International Orientation leaders, you'll build a globally-minded community of support at Bucknell as you get to know other students from countries around the world and discover the diversity of countries represented on campus.
This program will answer all of your questions about daily life at Bucknell and ensure that you're set up to succeed from the first day of classes. You'll have the opportunity to complete your immigration registration, open a bank account and receive your medical history clearance. In addition, you will meet academic deans, faculty and staff as you learn about health insurance, academic support resources, adjustment support, library services on campus and more.
There's plenty of time for fun as well. The week includes programs designed to help you learn more about Bucknell with a fun-filled scavenger hunt around campus, team-building games with your peers and chances to relax and laugh with humorous skits, dances and games. Each year we make every effort to also use the resources around the local area; we may have off-campus excursions to an outstanding amusement park, a local farm, or the nearby river.
You'll emerge from International Orientation with a set of friends from around the world, at least one upperclass student mentor, and essential information about academic and cultural adjustment.
