Explore Your Opportunities

  • Residential Colleges

    Living-learning Experience

    Sign up when you choose your first-semester courses.

    Residential Colleges are living-learning communities for first-year students. They're tied to a first-semester class, so you'll get to live and learn with students who share your interests.

    Residential Colleges are open to all students. You can sign up to join whichever Residential College interests you, regardless of what you plan to major in.

  • Global & Off-campus Education

    Study Abroad

    There's no substitute for the experience of exploring new places, meeting new people and the learning that happens through those encounters.

    Through our "Bucknell In" programs, exchanges and more than 450 partner programs, students can travel and explore the world around them while keeping their graduation requirements on track.
