Join B2B: Bison to Bison
We're proud to introduce B2B: Bison to Bison, our online community open to students admitted into the Class of 2025 and their families.
Log in here or using the unique link we sent to you by email or found on your application status page. From there, you can join one or more of our communities, where you'll find friendly and welcoming Bucknellians ready to answer questions, say hi and share their stories.
Course advising and registration for fall 2021 will start in late spring, so please watch for more information in the months ahead. In the meantime, if you have questions related to academics, we invite you to head over to Bison to Bison, where you can connect with faculty members and academic deans from all three of our colleges.
Our on-campus Orientation programs, held in August, focus on academic and social expectations, learning University traditions and providing opportunities for students to meet their new classmates.
Orientation begins Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2021.
"Pre-O" is a great way to settle into the University community, connect with classmates and enhance your leadership skills in a program of activities designed to jump-start your Bucknell experience. Whether you explore the arts, the outdoors, or any of our other themes, you’ll expand your mind, discover valuable Bucknell resources, and have a lot of fun as you settle into college life.
Final dates for pre-O programs will be announced soon.
