At Bucknell, we don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to education. The same is true of our visit experiences. This year, instead of only offering a single day or two of Admissions events, we're giving you a month and a half of informative virtual sessions from which to choose.

Introducing: Build Your Bucknell, which runs from Sept. 20 through Nov. 6, 2021. Choose from a menu of opportunities, including in-person tours and info sessions as well as informative virtual options offered both live and at your leisure. We give you the freedom to craft the perfect way to get to know Bucknell on your terms.

Start by reviewing the list below to see what we offer and register for your favorites. Some events have capacity limits, so we recommend exploring what's offered right away.
