At a Bucknell Open House, you'll spend a day discovering all that makes Bucknell unique. Tour our campus, meet professors, get a taste of student life and learn how to navigate the application process.
The next general Open House begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7, on our stunning campus in Lewisburg, Pa. It's designed for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors interested in any of our three colleges: Arts & Sciences, Engineering and the Freeman College of Management.
Our Open House on Monday, Nov. 4, is identical and designed for families whose schedules don't permit them to visit on a weekend.
Bring your questions, and we’ll bring our teams from academics, financial aid and admissions to answer them.
